Hello all! I am 6 days post root canal treatment and tomorrow I go in for my crown. My anxiety has been okay this week up until yesterday. My root canal last week was the first time I have had any dental work or medical procedure in 7 years. I know what to expect in some senses, but I am terrified once again.
- When I got the local anesthetic last week, I felt really nauseous for about 15-20 minutes after. My nerves were really bad and I had eaten right before getting there so I am not sure if that could have been related, but I am nervous as to why that happened and if it's normal. I am also nervous that it'll happen again.
- I haven't had a filling in so long, I don't know what to expect. I am always nervous of an allergic reaction to the material used or a medical emergency in the chair.
- Some of my tooth broke off after the root canal that had the temporary filling on there. @Gordon let me know it should be fine, but my anxiety about more bad news or it not being fixable is getting to me. It also is a lot on me financially.
- Lastly, in my appointment last week I was able to bring my mom. No one is able to go with me tomorrow and I am really nervous about that....
