Patient Comments: Root Canal - Procedures

How painful was your root canal procedure?

Horrible. I underwent a molar root canal before Christmas and have not yet seen the end of the ongoing pain. Extreme sensitivity to temperature and pressure plus a constant throbbing. It is so terrible I cannot eat or smile when there is a breeze.

Today I had my probably fourth or fifth root canal and was dreading the procedure. Just as the dentist was bringing out the good ol' shots I got the idea to give nitrous oxide a try. What a surprise! I was so relaxed I didn't even pay any attention to the procedure, the rubber dam and blocks, drilling, etc. that I normally hate! And no side effects afterwards! For anyone who dreads going to the dentist, give nitrous oxide a try! It could make all the difference for you too!
