dental office woes 

finally worked up the nerve to call the dentist to schedule a root canal, and they sent me to voicemail 🙃

dental office woes 

This is actually the third time I’ve tried contacting them about a root canal, and if they don’t call me back by end of day I’m going to an endodontist instead

Well! The dentist office is now closed and I haven’t received a call. I guess they have until I wake up tomorrow morning before I go to a different office. I don’t get why I’m being ghosted???

Original dentist finally called me back today (48 hours after I left a voicemail) and idk what to do. The total treatment cost would be cheaper with them, and they've done good work in the past. But I'm really annoyed about being ignored for the last week!

I think I'll go to the endodontist consultation on Friday and see what they say.

Nevermind, I called them and they said my root canal was covered! They must've resubmitted the claim and not mentioned it. Maybe. Still kinda sketchy, but I'm gonna go get the tooth fixed on Monday. Now I need to call the other office and cancel that appointment...

dental office woes pt 8 // CW blood 

Went to do root canal today and roots were so inflamed they started bleeding. Dentist was very surprised I wasn't in more pain prior to treatment! Unfortunately, the last root kept bleeding, so they weren't able to finish & I have to go back next week to complete it.

If they aren't able to complete root canal/tooth keeps bleeding, then the whole thing will have to be yanked out 💀 Next appointment is on Monday, so fingers crossed that I don't have any major problems before then

The temporary filling/crown thing has a weird lip on it so now I get to worry about accidentally yanking it out before my next appointment 😒

The temporary filling just fell out. 😖

dental woes: extraction (cw medical stuff) 

Went back to the dentist to finish the root canal and my tooth had fractured to below the gum line! So they had to pull it. Did NOT like that sensation but it was over faster than the root canal treatment, at least. Now I have to baby the socket until it heals up.

I guess the positive side is I didn’t have to pay for a crown after all, and the extraction was covered by my insurance.
