I am not really looking forward to find out more about it, but it looks like that is going to be in my future. If you click here you can see the web page of the endodotic associates who is looking at my mouth now. They are pretty sure that they are going to have to give me a root canal, but they are going to try to get the situation calmed down before they mess with it. I have a lot of antibiotics in my system right now and they are going to wait a few days to see if that does any good. I guess you call it an abscess or something like that, at any rate it has gotten infected and they have to get rid of that before they can go to work on the underlying problem. Until they get that part of it sorted out they are afraid to go to work in there.
Of course I am dreading the entire thing because this is going to put me out of work for at least a whole day and probably two. The best thing would be to get it done on a Friday if that was a possibility. You could then spend all weekend laying around taking pain pills if you had to. In fact I am more than a little bit afraid of the type of pain pills that you take when they do this sort of thing to you. You hear about guys who start taking those pills and it ends up messing them up a lot worse than a root canal could ever do. These people I know talk about these idiots who will do just about anything to get hold of some sort of pain pill. I guess it is the good stuff.
