Root Canal went well!

Just a small update before bed. The root canal went well. It "only" took 2 hours at the dentist's office. But, it also took them 2 valium & a strong dose of laughing gas to make the hubby loopy enough that he'd let them give him novicain shots. *grin*

Anyway, he's still very impressed with this dentist, and while he's not exactly excited about the follow up (for a crown over the treated tooth), it's more because of the cost of the procedure, than the procedure itself. However, before they do a crown, they also want to have him in for an exam and a cleaning. The cleaning, they've already told him, IS going to require novicain shots, else it would be too painful for him. So, that's another appointment that's going to require me taking him to & from. Oh well. As long as he gets it taken care of. That's what I want most at this point is him to have such a bad mouth that he hates smiling. *grin*

Dh is actually not in much pain tonight, either. Though evidently he dozed off at about 4 pm, and didn't wake up till I called at 5 after 7 pm to check in on him. *grin* And he ordered pizza for dinner, rather than making something. But, no pain. He said the tooth feels just fine. I hope it feels so well tomorrow, as well. *wink*

Thanks for the P&PT!!!!

I'm glad it went well and that he's still willing to go back for more treatment. LOL!
