Craptastic.

I had a cleaning and checkup at the dentist last week. It was my first time at the dentist since moving to this city - had to finally get around to finding a dentist because I had a filling fall out!
So yesterday I had my filling refilled. I had to go in today to have a cavity filled that they found at my checkup. Unfortunately they could only do a temporary filling because I need a freaking root canal. AAARRRGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!! I hate dental work. I have really terrible teeth. I've already had a root canal and 2 crowns.
So I have to go back in 2 weeks for my root canal. I guess the 2nd trimester is the best time to have dental work done if it's necessary. I'll have to have xrays done, but they'll use 2 lead aprons to cover me up.

What a yucky day.

Im sorry. I had a root canal when i was 32 weeks pregnant with DD. then another when she was 4 months old. the one HAD to be done then and the doc said it was perfectly safe. I hope you will not have too much pain with it!

That's SO gross! I'm sorry to hear this! They thought I was going to need a root canal when I was pg with DD...but it turned out that antibiotics cleared the issue up! Anyways, I have heard the second tri is the best time for dental work. I'm going to the dentist on Friday...I hope they find nothing. UGH. Sad

I'm due to go the dentist too...

Yep, a friend of mine had a root canal during one of her pregnancies with no issue. I had one done a few years back. I have to say, I thought the root canal was better than getting a filling!! Maybe they numb you up better?

Ugh that sucks. I actually had to get a wisdom tooth extracted on Monday. They told me with being pregnant it was safe but I would likely have more pain and swelling. It was horrible and I wouldn't wish the experience on anyone. I looked like I had a tennis ball in my cheek and am still in some pain. BLECH! I hope your root canal goes well and you dont' have any pain!

I had all 4 wisdom teeth extracted when I was 16. It was BRUTAL. They were impacted so I had to have surgery in the hospital. I feel for you Whitney. It's NO fun. Bletch! Sad

I had a filling this summer and they said that it was just barely doable without a root canal and if it starts hurting, I need the root canal. Well, it hurts A LOT. Bleh. I've never had a root canal before.
