Long story short, I worked up the courage to get my tooth looked at last week. It's an emergency dental place that accepts walk ins and I'm familiar with the place so I went to see why my tooth is hurting and what my options are. They took an X-ray and determined I have an abcsess and two of my teeth need root canals. So I make an appointment for a week later (today) at 4:30. So for an entire week I'm losing sleep, anxious, no appetite, bad mood, having a really rough time. So today is the day and while I'm extremely nervous, I'm Atleast relieved that after my appointment it will be all over for now. Well they call me two hours before my appointment to tell me their heater went out and I would have to reschedule for tomorrow. Problem is, who knows if the heater will truly be fixed by tomorrow and I can't do any other day this week If it isn't done tomorrow so there goes another week of dread, no sleep, and anxiety. To top it off, I've been scared of getting this root canal done because I don't know this dentist and I'm not super confident in him (I have no real reason to feel this way I'm just scared that maybe he's not experienced enough or something) so now I'm wondering if this was a sign to go else where. However that is hard because that means another exam, more X-rays and who knows when they can get me in and it's basically starting all over. I used so much courage just to get here and this reschedule feels like a huge step back. I guess I'm just looking for support. What are your thoughts? Has this ever happened to you?
