RE: a teeth question

I've told this before but my childhood dentist Dr Lewis was a true sadist who told me if I cried, he would call the police on me. A real evil fucker who's notice of death came years later by way of a 4x6 postcard in the mail which I hung right next to my Krokus poster.
For ten years I bounced from dentist to dentist until I went to my wifes childhood friend who graduated Northwestern. What a contrast. A funny guy with amazing talent. He recreated a tooth from one shard after Lewis' handiwork fell apart. All painless and hot dental assistants to boot. The bastard sold his business now so I think I'll just let my gums fester.
I guess my point is find a great dentist. Soory for my indulgence. [:I]

I have two crowns. One required a root canal, the other did not.
There is not enough nitrous made to keep a root canal from hurting. I had maxed out on the lidocaine, and the nitrous had me floating near the ceiling, and it still was a difficult experience for me.
Can you get that without the tooth thingy?
Sure, just date the ugly dental techs....there usually desperate for attention & they'll look better after a few snorts.

My experience as a child suffering under military dentists as they fullfilled their draft or educational obligations was like that. Freaking sadistic incompetent bastards.

As a result, a whining Dremel gives me the chills.

RE: a teeth question

If the decay is too deep is better to get the root canal now as it can cause problems later on even with a crown as there is to little tooth material protecting the nerves, there is no need to remove a crown to perform a root canal since the dentist can drill thru the crown, decay can occur with a crown, that is why is important to go to a good dentist who can seal the crown with a gold seal and prevent bacteria from working it way under the crown, then you will have a cavity going under the crown, it wont be visible, the first clue will be pain from an abscess, an abscessed tooth will be unresponsive to Novocain and any procedure will hurt, first the abscess will have to be dealt with by antibiotics or drainage

I forget to mention he was Old, Blood & Guts Patton's dentist during the war. Seriously, I could not make that up.

Thanks Andrew. That tooth is not bothering me right now. It's just that the fillings keeps coming off and he suggests crowning it to fix it once and for all. It's not infected or anything. I guest it's preventative measure. But thanks for informing me of the pain from an abscess. That would be horrible. Put if this way, the dentist is one of the least favourite person I'd like to see.

Maybe I have hight pain tolerance. I nearly doze off having my root canal done. I found keeping my mouth open for an extended period is more annoying. Then again, I had lot of dental work and gum surgeries over the years.

RE: a teeth question

I had just one root canal/crown due to breaking a molar.When the dentist described what he had to do,I felt decidedly queasy and opted for the IV sedation option.I honestly don't remember a thing about it after sitting in the chair.The only downside is that you need someone to accompany you,to drive you home and make sure you are not interfered with while you are away with fairies.
