OK, so Thursday would have been a few days ago. How'd it go?
I am between temporary-crown and permanent crown in a root canal procedure on a front tooth. I've had several other root canals, and they have never been as painful after the first drilling as before they were drilled out. One problem is that if you're temperature-sensitive there might still be an infection around the root - my dentists have usually shot me full of novocaine, cleared everything down to the bottom of the root (no nerve, no more pain), put antibiotics in there, sealed things up for a week or two while I took oral antibiotics to totally kill any infection. Hope you mentioned the sensitivity, since the dentist might have altered his process on that basis.
