In a couple of days I’ll have to decide if I’m going to have root canal or extraction of a molar.
Early in the week I made an appointment with my regular dentist as I was experiencing excruciating pain from a molar and new it to be nerve pain. Had a bad experience with root canal years ago, among the horrors: soon after, the tooth needed to be extracted because of broken roots and an abscess.
So I went in wanting an extraction,
but my dentist asked me to have a good think about it and get back to him with my decision.
To the Community:
I would welcome your input, please, to help me decide.
Also, if you have any tips for managing the pain.
As I don’t go with painkillers much, I have found a cold pack to be of some help. All my meals have to be eaten cold as any warmth brings on terrible pain.
