Apparently, if the antibiotics don't kill your infection completely the dentist cannot numb the tooth enough(heaven knows that she tried- nine shots) to perform a root canal on your tooth.
So I have a new round of antibiotics to take.
I have a new appointment to attempt the root canal again.
And a new set of anxiety to overcome. Maybe I should take a Valium or ask to be knocked out. I was anxious the whole time and uncomfortable and did not want to be there.
I felt alot of pain and the dentist was very friendly but it just wasn't happening. I now have something called a sedative filing until my appointment.
