And it's back with a vengeance! The tooth that previously suffered a root canal is at it again, sending out nauseating waves of pain. I still need to make an appointment, but I'm afraid of the diagnosis. It may be "goodbye and so long" to my tooth. What a joke.
For the record, I've brushed my teeth twice a day, every day, flossed 3 times a week, and sloshed two cups of mouth wash every day ever since my last appointment a little over a year ago. I suppose that is part of the problem -- I wait too long to go in for a cleaning, which should be scheduled twice a year. But I must have some pretty lame genes as well.
I wish I had dental insurance. Hopefully this won't eat up all my savings.
