Teeth, teeth, teeth..

I’m after my root canal now. I had it done this morning. I was expecting the worst as I walked into the dentist’s surgery.
It took an hour, I didn’t feel any pain but a lot of discomfort having my mouth open for so long! I was given and injection, the dentist drilled down into the tooth a bit and then started poking small rods into the tooth to clear it out. Just like clearing out a pipe!
When he was certain the tooth was as clear as he could get it, he filled the tooth with small plastic pins which he then melted into my tooth using a bunsen-burner heated instrument!
Finally, a filling was put on top, an xray taken of the tooth and I was told that the procedure went perfectly.
Then I coughed up the ridiculous amount of money dentists charge and our PRSI doesn’t cover.. I’ll have to send off that tax-relief form and hope I get some of it back!
