4. oh that sucks, I feel your pain
I had 2 teeth done. Let's put it this way, it's easier than getting wisdom teeth extracted.

6. Not to rub it in for either of you, but I haven't needed anything...

done since I had two fillings back when I was 10, I'm 28 now, and my teeth, besides some staining, have nothing wrong with them. :evilgrin:

9. oh yeah, well my root canal was from a soccer injury
other than that, I've never needed anything done on my teeth since my baby teeth fell out. No braces or fillings or anything.

7. Consider headphones
to drown out the sound of the springy thing being plunged in your roots. Yeah, you'll still "hear" it, or "feel" it or whatever, but music at least will help distract you.

8. May it pass quickly!
I think it's horrible that you have had so much pain for all this time. Hang in there, not long now. :hug:

10. Don't worry...
If they do it right it won't hurt. I had two done, and aside from a sore jaw from holding my mouth open so long, no pain at all!!!

12. That's crazy.
I was once faced with the choice and told the dentist to just pull the useless fucker.
