In my case almost 2 root canals. Why 2? Because it turns out one of them is not quite complete. My root canal dentist is very thorough and thinks there are a few more roots in my upper tooth: how special am I?
So I have to come back again. He joked how he thought he was getting rid off me. I said I thought the same about him. Alas.
Oh well, at least the office is very professional, doesn't make me wait, and the dentist speaks Spanish! He's from Venezuela and has a very nice Spanish accent. Don't get too excited: he could be my grandfather.
Oh, and he keeps on reminding me to open my mouth wider...as if. But I am getting better at having x-rays done: they used to completely gag me.
