Root Canal Part II

Yesterday, some two months after Part I, my dentist continued on the root canal work.  The one canal (of three in this molar) is badly inflamed.  The dentist assures me that 90% of root canal doesn't cause pain but I drew the short straw - despite gallons (it seems!) of local anaesthetic, when he actually probed down that canal it hurt more than a little.  On one occasion I literally jumped up with my whole body - quite a feat when you lying horizontally on a dentist's chair, a clamp over the tooth and a sharp instrument in the dentist's hand!
