The Ramblings of a Damaged Mind
Starting yesterday my lower right rearmost molar decided to cause me pain when I chew, consume anything hot, consume anything cold, and sometimes when I do nothing. It has an old filling so I suspect something got under it and I have a cavity. The first appointment I could get is for 14:40 next Wednesday. Joy.

What is it about dentists lately? I had to move my cleaning from Aug 21 (I'll be in Europe) and they couldn't get me a Saturday appointment until October!

I've been tempted to switch to a local dentist instead of just using Gentle Dental (which is low cost and I have full reimbursement insurance but I have to front the cash).

Beware, Hot/Cold sensitivity is usually a sign of needing a Root Canal.

If it's a choice between an RC and yanking a back tooth like that, perhaps just yanking it out would be best... especially if it's actually a wisdom tooth, unless you've had them out, of course.
