New week with a goal set I couldn't stomach through for. Everyones been telling me root canals aren't bad and I shouldn't worry about anything.. Why do I worry so much then?! It is alot of money.. And if it's very painful for me I may freak out or who knows what. As a kid I would freak out and all the above, I know I won't act like that now being an adult, but I feel heldback from pushing forward in this because the only experiences I have are bad child ones. My family either has no dental problems or gets no dental work done.. But I am prepared to do this for my health.. I feel like I'm getting so close to calling and going in, and then, I freak myself out.. Does anyone else have stories of upper root canals they may share with me? Any type of encouragement or tips? ANYTHING at all helps. I can't thank a couple of you enough for the help so far.. In a town of 90k, and alot of 4+ star reviewed dentists and endos, I feel like I'm at the beginning of a very long journey just finding the dentist that is right for me.. I keep procrastinating on this. But once I get my health back, I get my life back... I just keep being fearful of any nerve pain while getting the root canal done. I'd really just prefer to be knocked out. If I do IV sedation will they still numb me when they do the canal so I don't wake up in intense pain?
