My root canal wasn’t as bad as I thought

I let my teeth go without dental work for far too long.  Unfortunately, because I was always busy with work and did not have any dental insurance, it got to the point where I knew I was going to need some serious dental work.  I finally took a trip to the dentist, and he told me that I needed a root canal and would need to visit a surgical dentist wheeling il.  I was not shocked to discover this, but that did not mean that it didn’t bother me quite a bit.  The dentist referred me to a surgical dentist here locally, and I went ahead and made my appointment. 

I spent the weeks leading up to the appointment being nervous about the whole thing.  I had never had a root canal before, but everyone has told me that it is not a very pleasant experience.  I was afraid that I would end up being in a lot of pain and would be suffering for weeks.  Finally, the day came for the root canal and I made my way to the surgical dentist.  He was very nice and comforted me throughout the entire procedure, and I actually found that, while it was not very pleasant, it was also not nearly as painful as I had been led to believe in the past.  This was definitely a positive.

Of course, I did still need a little bit of recovery time, but it was not nearly as long as I had hoped.  I am definitely glad that I got the surgeon that I did, and that everything went according to plan.  I now am fully recovered, and I am on my way to having a healthy mouth again thanks to this local surgical dentist.
