Root Canal?

Mon Nov 26, 2007 9:07 pm

I just found out I need a root canal. Anyone here ever have one? Painful?

The quality of my teeth has always been low. I hate having those ancient Roman torture devices, I mean dental instuments, in my mouth even for cleaning. My mouth has a very low pain threshold. Do you think there will be shots in my mouth for this?

I've been reading up on the procedure and it seems like I am going to be hurting for awhile. Does it feel as bad as people say or no?

Remember the old joke-----Always have a male dentist as then just before he starts you grab him by the balls and say
"I won't hurt you if you don't hurt me"

I have had it done and just had a couple of jabs and listened to music. Most of all do not think about what he is doing, just let him get on with his work.

A bit sore afterwards ,but again nothing to worry about

Yes, I had one about ten years ago. It wasn't all that bad...the dentist used a local anesthetic and the procedure was quite quick. Once the anesthetic wore off, it hurt a little, but no more than a dull background pain for the rest of the day that two or three ibuprofen took care off. It was sensitive for a couple of days after that when eating, or when drinking super hot or icy cold liquids, but for the most part, it wasn't anything near some of the nightmare stories I had heard about beforehand.

And bear in mind this was a decade ago. Technology and procedures have developed since then, so I'm sure that today it's likely to be even less painful.

It's not that big a deal really but yes you will have shots for it.

1 - drill away tooth pulp to expose nerve canals

2 - use threaded augers to remove all healthy and damaged nerve tissue

3 - sanitise empty canals (various methods available) and fill with temporary material - end of first visit

4 - second visit - remove temporary fill, check again for any remaining nerve tissue or infection from previous work

5 - permanent filling of canals and tooth cavity with "stuff"

6 - finish tooth, very variable dependant on how much of crown removed for root canal, may require 3rd or more visits

7- huge bill

I had one this fall, and it was a non-event really. I had to ask my dentist - a very nice woman - if she really was done with the entire procedure. Of course I had shots of pain killer, but like the farmer said when he had sheared the pig: A lot of screaming for that little wool.

I've had one to, not very painful, just a little but nothing major. As with others the dentist gave me a local anesthetic, that was probably the scariest part as after that you can't feel a dam thing!

That's for damn sure.

I've had three now. The first one, I was so scared when he said I needed one that I tensed up like I was in front of a firing squad, and remained like that for 20 minutes. Eventually, I asked the dentist when he was going to get started, and he told me he had finished that 10 minutes ago. I didn't even notice.

You'll be numbed up, and you won't notice a thing. It's just like getting a filling, but with a little extra scraping.

I had two on both of the roots of my front teeth about ten years ago after I lost them in a rollerblading accident (I wish I had a better story than that!). They aren't terribly painful, but boy, they are boring. Hopefully dental science has advanced enough in the last ten years that they don't take several hours to complete...I was bored to tears on both of those appointments.

Yup, and its not a horrible procedure. I had all 3 of mine cut out since they were embedded deep in the gum. The procedure isn't bad, I was knocked out for an hour and woke up with gauze in my mouth. The next week will be a pain with not eating hard foods and the dull pain, but its a pretty easy thing to handle.

Not true in all cases...I had mine out last December (all 4 impacted), and was eating regular food after 3 days. Just make sure you get a very good doctor to do the procedure and you'll be good to go. And for heaven's sake get knocked out...

I've had several root canals...the anticipation is worse than the procedure. your mouth will be well and truly numbed, so you won't feel a thing.

Quoting N231YE (Reply 10):

WAY back in 1978, I spent an entire day with my dentist...four wisdom teeth removed, and six crowns done.....in the chair, local anesthetic......and went to a cocktail party immediately afterwards. Of course, the lower half of my face was totally dead, so watching me haveing a drink was quite amusing...dribble, dribble. I've never gone under general anesthetic for any dental procedures, and I've had more than I can count, but I find that people who have local tend to recover faster. I've never had to take time off work after any dental procedure....and that includes a double extraction two years ago. (Again in the chair under local)

Maybe I'm just tough.....I dunno.

I just had a root canal done on a molar (well, nearly done, I hope to get it finished with the 3rd appointment tomorrow). It's no biggie really, I thought it would be much worse. Anaesthesia - lots of it - is, of course, vital in my case Big grin

I had my two top wisdom teeth removed a couple of years ago, one a week after the other. They were both embedded deep within the gum, but I was on local anaesthetic and didn't feel a thing, and I was back to eating normal food after a couple of days.

As other have said, it's better to get a root canal done while the tooth can still be saved - I remember a painful abscess and subsequent extraction of a molar when I was about 12, that could have been prevented with a root canal  frown

I am having one done these days. (last appointment thursday... cue the bill :-p )

Like everyone said... more boring than painful. The only 'painful' part for me was to keep my mouth wide open for the time necessary to complete the proceeding.

No pain at all otherwise, as the anesthetic is quite efficient !
One thing about the anesthetic actually. Depending on the tooth to be 'cured', the same quantity might not be necessary. My case was the worst, a low molar, and the anesthetic lasted for 3 hours afterwards (carefull not to bit my tongue or cheek !). Had it been an upper tooth, the needed anesthetic would have been much less.

Anyway, I hope I can cheer you up by saying that I suspect another of my teeth to be in need of the same treatment, and that now I don't fear it at all !

One last word : Rhaa ma dent !!!

Cheers,

Nice! I'm quite envious...I don't remember what my story was (I should have had them out quite some time ago), but my recovery took about a week. I'm pretty sure I memorized the Discovery Channel's daily lineup during that time.

And yes, get knocked out--but be warned--when I came to, the doc/nurses asked if I wanted to keep my teeth. In my anesthetized state, I said "yes." Later on, I was wondering just why the hell I had these gross/broken teeth in a bag. Play it safe and tell them to throw those things out!  Wink

Yes. If my memory serves me correctly, I was eating normally the night of my root canal--and that was over ten years ago. I'm sure dental technology has advanced to the point that you could probably go out and get a burger following the procedure if your mouth wasn't numbed into uselessness.

Wed Nov 28, 2007 9:36 am

It's really funny how everyone is scared by dentists. I'm in the same boat. I was so scared that I avoided them for 10+ years (no kidding!), I didn't even go to the hygienist. I was put into this panic state by my orthodontist I went to back in high school. She was very non-friendly, non-empathic, and just plain rude. She really didn't care about her patients' worries, but I couldn't switch to another one - I was underage, and my parents thought that I was exaggerating when I complained about her.

Anyway, at least 10 years later my bf was going to the dentist. I thought that this was the right time to do it. I told him to get an appointment for me, just any date, whenever he wanted, with the hygienist. And to tell them that I was scared sh*tless of dentists. He did it - and a month later my time had come. They all were very kind to me, and it all was worlds apart from what I had experienced with my horror movie orthodontist. Although the hygienist was not amused - it took 2 sessions to remove 10+ years worth of tartar  vomit  - and by the way, I didn't have any cavities!  Silly

Bottom line: just make sure you have a good dentist who also takes care about the patient's overall well being, and not only his teeth.

Oh by the way, I see that a lot of people are talking about "getting knocked out" - I've never heard of anyone in Switzerland having more than a local anesthesia to extract their wisdom teeth. You won't get knocked out even if you ask. I hope I'll never have to get my wisdom teeth extracted, but I sure would like to be knocked out during that procedure.

As said the anticipation is worse than getting it done. Had it done twice, onc in 1999 and again a year ago. I also hate dentists like yourself, and went 6 years without going to one... decay got so bad on tooth I later found out I needed root canal on than an absces developed cause I waited so long, the I put it off for another year or two and I acn tell you that was dumb! Ended up being rushed to hospital and having it done under general anaesthetic. So just egt yourself a dentist your comfortable with, get it done as soon as you can, bring an Ipod or something, don't look at what he's doing (nothing nasty, but better not to look) and maybe see if you can take some prescribed tranquilizers before to calm those nerves.

Good luck and don't do the dtupid thing I did which was to keep putting off the second root canal treatment.

I had all 4 of my pre-molars removed (last tooth before the molars) and my bottom wisdom teeth (impacted) under IV sedation. No pain during/after but I got an infection on my bottom right side where the wisdom tooth was removed. Probably due to food getting caught there. That part was not fun at all but it's rare for it to get infected.

I had emergency root canal treatment in Washington DC while on holiday. It was a Friday evening and the dentist wasn't sure his assistant could be there in good time... so I acted as his assistant, holding various implements in place. I was lucky in that the nerve was pretty dead so I didn't bother with anaesthetic.

I have to say it was a fairly enjoyable evening, considering that I had just arrived that afternoon and wasn't planning on doing anything that evening. The dentist was a Japanese-American who coached soccer and didn't like American football so we had plenty to talk about. I can't remember how much it cost exactly but my insurance reimbursed all but about £30. Having felt miserable during the entire rail trip from NY, I felt so much better that I did end up going out for the rest of the evening.

Well, It's been over for about 3 hours now. The feeling in my face is returning as the shots wear off.

You all were right, nothing to it. This was probably the best any dental appointment I've had has felt. The Endodontist was great and I didn't hardly feel a thing during the procedure. If I ever need something like this done again I will definately go back to this same person.

Now, I get a crown in 2 weeks and this all should be taken care of just in time to chow down for Christmas.

Mon Dec 03, 2007 9:48 pm

The most important thing when it comes to root canal jobs is: Get it done quickly! I can't stress that enough.

Some years ago (on a Friday) I noticed that there was something wrong with one tooth and thought I should call my dentist next monday. On Sunday morning my sister-in-law called to tell me that she found the death body of my brother at her home, so the following two weeks I didn't spent a single thought on my stupid tooth.
It wasn't before I flew back into TXL that my tooth said "Hi there, remember me?". Went to a pharmacy, bought a pain killer and asked for the number of he dental emergency service, just to be safe. But I didn't see a dentist, after all it was Saturday evening. From 10 p.m. on, I started to throw in those jagged pills like peppermint drops. The number of the emergency service was always busy, and after an hour or two an answering machine told me that the number was outdated. The actual number was busy as well, but at a quarter to two, I was listening to another answering machine saying that they will close at 2. a.m. Getting there would at the very least take half an hour.
I once drove from Leverkusen to Berlin (halfway through Germany) with a broken rip, which wasn't a big deal compared to the pain I was suffering from that night. At 4 a.m. I sat there crying and called an ambulance. The other guy got mad when I told him that there's no 24-hour dental service in a city like Berlin and that he's sorry for not being able to help since dentists don't man ambulances.

Later on I found a dental hospital which opens at 7 a.m. on Sundays. I came early but was number three in the line. The dentist did two root canal jobs and said that parts of my jaw-bone was sore.

So if you need a root canal, get that job done quickly!

Got that right.

Initial exam last week. $68
Prescription meds to get me through last week. $39
Root canal today. $944
Have a crown put on in two weeks. $960

And I have health insurance. I have to pay all this out of pocket though and send in claim forms to the insurance company to see what they will reimburse be for all this.

Looking at about $2000 on one tooth. If this comes up again I'll have to think for a while on if it's worth it or if I can live in pain. I'm young, if this lasts my lifetime on this tooth then it's worth it. In 30 years though...who knows?

Be sure you check with your insurance provider so you don't have a shock afterwards - most plans only cover 60 to 70% of the cost. Mine was more generous and covered 80%, but my bill was still over $250.00 out-of-pocket.

Quoting Dvk (Reply 6):
Needing a root canal is worse than having a root canal. I know from experience.

Amen to that. I had one done last year and another the previous year. No big deal. On both ocassions I had PAIN a whole weekend. RCT was a total relief.

It's been 24 hours now and I'm still in no pain. This is great.
It only hurts a little when I drink something cold, such as Mt Dew. But I can't live without my Mt Dew.
