Danny Merrell’s Root Canals – Nothing But the Tooth, 1st Report

Day one with candy.PNG

Darn you, chocolate!  What do you have against my teeth?

It looks like all those years of eating my favorite sweets have taken their toll and now I’m set for a couple of root canals… Starting today! 

Okay, okay, it’s not all the fault of M&M’s and Hershey’s Dark Chocolate candy bars, I’ll accept some of the blame since I didn’t brush as often as I should.  But the damage has been done and my dentist says I need two root canals.  This involves FIVE appointments.  Two of those for the actual root canals, two more for the installation of the crowns, and then one more to… Well, I’m not quite sure what the final appointment is for; maybe there’s some sort of candy burning ritual that happens.

Am I scared?

A little.

Basically, I’m just a little fearful of the unknown.  I’ve heard that the procedure is not too painful since they shoot you up with that numbing stuff.  Maybe I’ll even get some of that laughing gas.  That’s always fun — if you like watching a 49 year old man with a tube sticking out of his mouth singing Lady Gaga.

I have other questions.  What am I allowed to eat afterwards?  Am I allowed to eat?  Will I only be able to use my front teeth to chew for awhile?  Will I turn into a beaver?

As you can see, I’m going into these procedures blindly.  Any input on your personal experiences would be welcome, preferably just the sugar-coated stories.

Never mind, sugar coating is what got me here in the first place.

I’ll be sure to keep you updated through the following weeks with personal insight, pictures, and videos.  Look for  my second report coming soon.
