so ya i got off of school to go to the dentist for my regular check up, it was my second time in about a month because i broke half of my front tooth off in a wrestling tourney and went to get it capped... so after all the checkups and such were done the dentist tells me that i have to get a double root canal on both of my front teeth... the thing is i have no 'effin clue wat a root canal is, i know that it doesnt hurt cuz they numb ur mouth or sumthin but my main concern is how long is this b*tch gunna take, my dad told me sumwhere around 3 hours

I remember hearing root canals are painful and very uncomfortable? I dunno for sure, I`ve only ever had 1 cavity and it was done with a laser so, I unno how any of that stuff feels...wisdom teeth hurt like a ***** though when they get removed.

yes root canals are actually paintful, sorry to say. At least from what i hear. Since they are going into your root, it may not numb you all the way and itll hurt. goodluck

Don't worry man. I had a root canal two years ago and I did not feel a single thing. I just layed there and watched tv while he drilled away. When he was done I got up and went out to get something to eat and didn't feel a thing. Don't listen to all of the people telling you that it will hurt terribly, because it doesn't. Maybe back in the 50's but nowadays you won't feel a thing.

Luckily I have only had 1 cavity, but it was in my baby teeth, so I never had it worked on. But I hear it hurts, but not as much as people say they do.

I got back from the doctor a couple hours ago, look's like I will be having my gall bladder taken out in a little while. :(

getting a cavity drilled/filled isn't that bad if you have a good dentist.

get some hydrocodon, it'll make you feel better =D

thats part of it yeah, but another part is yourself. i had to get crowns on a few molars, and when they drilled the right side into my nerve i didnt feel anything, the novacaine or w/e worked great, but on my left side it hurt like hell..they gave me the max legal amount and i still felt it..that was gay

well ive had four done. ive had every dentist problem in the book, so im used to it by now. i didnt feel a thing. my dentist lets you play video games while your teeth are being drilled so i was playing xbox so my mind wasnt on it. see if your dentist will let you listen to music or watch tv it helps.

Omg dude. In 5th grade I broke my front tooth in half, and I just had a cap on it, but this year (around october) I had to get a double root canal, it blew hardcore afterwards, but I got to take vicodin. It didn't hurt at all when it was being done, but what they do is, drill a big ass hole in the back of your tooth and stick a bunch of metal rods down in, after taking the root out, then put dentistry cement over it. And you're done. I now have a porcelin (Sp) vinnere (sp) cap on it, that was ****ing $465.00! Luckily insurance covered it.

My wisdom teeth were impacted so they busted them out with a chisel, then did a root canal to remove and fix the rest. They gave me valum but id dint take it, untill the novacaine wore off the OMG!!!, I learned real quick why I was given the meds......... but yes after the fact is the bad part..............

make sure you go to someone who knows what theyre doing. my orthodontist's assistant was popping the brackets off my teeth when i got them off, and chipped part of the lower part of one of my teeth (this was november 2002). i didn't know anything had happened until abt 6 months ago when my dentist told me i had a cavity. very first one and it wasn't even my fault.
