Hi, so I recently had the first step of a root cannel done for a tooth that was very decayed and had been infected on and off for a few months. While the dentist was removing the pulp and tissues from inside the tooth there was 3 or 4 moments where I felt very bad nerve pain. Like jolting pain. I told him and he said that was normal because it was so decayed..which I kind of doubted was normal..i guess my question is even with being numbed is that normal to feel pain with a tooth that decayed or did he just not do his job right by giving me more anesthesia??I have more appointments with him and I’m nervous to go back.
