Lovely, beautiful, MARVELOUS ANESTHETIC! I am so VERY grateful for anesthetic this morning! Root Canals – or ANY dental work, for that matter – are just fine and dandy WITH anesthetic. I NEVER EVER want to find out what they’re like without it! I’ve been putting off this root canal for a while so the nerve was pretty inflamed. They had to put in the really good stuff after the first two rounds of shots. My face is so numb right now…nearly 3 hrs later. I’m starting to get that itchy, tingly sensation in and around my ear and cheek so I think the wear off has begun. I began to laugh during the treatment because the popular song, “I Can’t Feel My Face” came on. My doctor said he had never had a patient laugh during a root canal. :0) I couldn’t help it! It was funny!
The last root canal I had (this is my second) was back in 2007 by the same doctor. I had forgotten about it until I came to the office and while talking to the receptionist a framed note caught my eye.
I thought, “Hmmm? That writing looks familiar. Wait! That’s MY writing! Oh, my gosh! I remember writing this note! I remember this doctor! Wow! Cool! Oh, my gosh!”
My first root canal was done so well I had forgotten all about it! And the Thank You note to prove it is in a frame at reception! Awesome! We don’t always get to see the affect of a good deed, especially a simple note. It IS nice to say THANKS and people DO appreciate it.
I’m gonna go take a nap now. Life is BEAUTIFUL…with anesthetic! ;0)
