Two Fun Days at the Dentist: Root Canal #1 and a Crown

I might slow down a bit over the next few days, tomorrow and the next day.

As a result of my Dec 30, 2018 bike crash, my molar (tooth #30) has disintegrated in half, necessitating a root canal followed by a crown. The break is just high enough that maybe I won’t have to also see a periodontist to carve off gum tissue also. Plenty of other teeth (five) also need crowns from crash damage. Oh, and I need my wisdom teeth removed.

I’m told that a root canal is no big deal but for some reason it makes me nervous.

Dental work is not my favorite thing, and the total costs with orthodontia (coming off in 3 weeks) and wisdom teeth approaches $18K. I never thought that the dental work would greatly exceed the medical expenses. Well, it’s a damn site better than a broken neck.

Update: 5 hours in the dentist’s chair (root canal one day, crown the next) resulted in a perfect crown to replace the disintegrated lower molar. Amazing what scanning and 3D sculpting of porcelain can do. Five more crowns to go, and orthodontia off then a retainer. But it’s better than a broken neck.
