…on account of an emergency root canal.
Believe you me, I’d rather being comics blogging.
Sorry, gang…hopefully I’ll see you tomorrow.
Today’s post is called “On Account of An Emergency Root Canal”?!? Strange title. ;)
Joking aside, hope all goes well Mike! Take care.
I’ve had it done – no fun.
I hope ur teefs feel better.
Ungood. Hope it is over and done quickly and painlessly. I remember mine being mostly boring, then my jaw was tired for a couple of days. (That’s what sh– aw, forget it.)
Yet you still have an update for your site. Adorable :) Hope you feel better real soon.
Feel better soon, Mike.
I remember the last time I had an impacted *and* somewhat decaying wisdom tooth extracted (fortunately a possible root canal was deemed unnecessary afterwards). Not unmixedly pleasant. Feel better soon, yon Mike! Lay on your back and think of Sluggo!
can anyone more dentistry-savvy than me explain how a root canal can jump up to an emergency?
skizelo – Since I am back from the dentist’s, I am happy to explain. It went from “hmmm, that doesn’t feel 100%, I’ll have to make an appointment with my dentist soon” to “OH DEAR SWEET GOD I CAN’T SEE.” It went from very minor annoyance to nearly unbearable literally overnight, so I had to get it taken care of right away if I expected to continue to function like a human being. Or like a comic shop manager, which is close enough.
Mike, this song should cheer you up a bit:
I had to have one done when a botched minor dental procedure suddenly led to an infection (during a long holiday weekend) and I nearly died (because no dentists or oral surgeons were available).
Not a good time.
But, as for the root canal… it wasn’t so bad.
Y’know… compared to the hallucination-filled infection pain and the nearly dying thing.
Feel better, Mikester!
If it helps, all the meds should have you talking… like… Alec… Holland…
No one has a root canal for the hell of it. When I had mine at the beginning of this year, my aching tooth had gotten to the point where I couldn’t concentrate, sleep, or eat, the pain was so intense. It was a feverish throb that spread from my jaw to the rest of my head, and breathing in and out would alternately soothe the tooth or set the thing on fire — seemingly at random.
I’m going to assume that since you have to ask, you’ve never had to deal with tooth pain that bad before. I hope you never have to.
Hey Mike – feel better. Tooth pain is worse than the art in some Golden Age comics.
