So update on my life/teeth lol. About a year ago, my tooth started hurting really bad. I had to go to an emergency dentist, and he put a filling in a cavity I had. Two weeks later I had the same pain again. I then went to my regular dentist, and the recommended a root canal. A week after that, I got a root canal (IT TOOK 3 1/2 HOURS). Then I went to the dentist and got a temporary filling. Flash forward 6 months later, I'm finally getting a permanent cap! It's expected to take 1 1/2 hours so wish me luck.
