Well, I got myself all psyched up for my root canal appointment today. A different dentist was to do the root canal then did the initial treatment when my tooth broke. He did a test of whether my tooth felt cold applied to it. It did not (not a good sign apparently). He left the room and I chatted with the assistant (which was nice, helping me to keep relaxed) and then he came back in and said he wanted to refer me to a specialist and have an endodontist perform the root canal. He said there was very little tooth left - it's mostly all filling now and felt a specialist would be better to do the procedure for the long term health of the tooth. So, I got a referral and headed back home. GAHHH! I just wanted it to be over with!
