The dreaded root-canal!

The dentist opined that all my trouble was not wisdom-tooth related, but rather an infection in the nerve canal of a back molar which has been filled more than once (and which fillings have crumbled more than once).

He started the root-canal process today and extracted an infected nerve and inserted a temporary filling with antibiotic to calm the infection.

My face feels like it should hit things 10 or more centimetres beyond me, after all the anesthetic he injected into me!

Waiting lists being what they are, I have two appointments in January to finish the job off.
