Getting root canal today at 12:45. Shouldn't hurt since the nerve is totally dead.
It really hurt a lot last week. The dentist said something like,
"That tooth probably died about 6 months ago then the nerve slowly liquified. After a while that juice leaked out into the surrounding tissue and caused infection and the resultant inflammation is what is causing all the pain."
Um, gross. However, I got this powdered herb from school (Huang lian) and in 12 hours the pain was gone and it's been fine ever since. Of course, I need to take it 2 to 3 times per day or I start feeling a little weirdness but it's been fine. Thank goodness for easy herb access!
