Tomorrow I am having a root canal. For the last two I had oral sedation (Ativan). Both were done by general dentists, and everything was fine. Tomorrow's will be done by an endodontist, who uses triazolam for the oral sedation. There are many reasons I experience the degree of anxiety I do in connection with dental procedures. The dentist who will be doing my RC tomorrow is very nice, and I feel relatively comfortable with him. But I cannot help feeling anxious, quite anxious, especially with the change in my oral sedation to an unknown, to me, medication. His office is nice, the staff are all very nice, and my husband will be there. I have tried to be calm today, but it was difficult to eat this evening. I don't expect to get much sleep. If anyone reads this and has a word of encouragement, before tomorrow afternoon in Texas, I would be very grateful. Thank you.
