Root Canal Time

It’s time to start phase two of my “save the tooth” campaign.  This isn’t a procedure that causes me all that much anxiety, because I’ve been through it before.  At the least, it means there will be no more pain in that tooth, which will make me happy.

Let the jokes about gun owners having bad teeth begin.

    I feel your pain. Not because I have a Clinton-esque pathological surfeit of empathy (I don’t), but because I realize that for what a root canal costs, you could buy a nice pistol.

    Good luck with that.

    It’s over. It took a heroic amount of anesthetic. I’m going to be numb (and hungry) for a while I think.

    The cost is pretty bad, but I do have an FSA, which this will max out. But my out of pocket cost for repairing this tooth will, indeed, be the cost of a really nice pistol… about 600 bucks.

    Gun owners don’t have bad teeth, they have bad dentists.

    Save money, shoot .22s. Or if need be, BB or airsoft guns.

    I hate to be a wet blanket, but all my root canals failed. All my filled teeth failed. I do wish you better luck.

    I’m two for two, so far. Hopefully three for three, and not two for three.

    Gun owners clean and polish their guns and not their teeth.
