The whole tooth and nothing but the tooth
Sep 01, 2009
Okay, I admit it. I’m a little appre”hen”sive. (Pun intended). Tomorrow morning I will get to experience all the pleasure that comes along with a root canal. I have never really had a problem going to the dentist but this is a bit different. The procedure looks very straight forward and fairly simple but at the very end of the paperwork on the consent form there was a little disclaimer which said...”Although root canal therapy has a high degree of success, it can not be guaranteed...” This was followed by the last sentence...”Occasionally, a tooth, which has had root canal therapy, may require retreatment, surgery or even extraction.”
Anybody out there ever see Dustin Hoffman in Marathon Man? Now I ask you, can you blame me for being just a little chicken?
It’s fun and that’s the tooth! Visit: www.rubescartoons.com
