5 little words nobody wants to hear.....

.... You Need A Root Canal. I broke a tooth yesterday (back molar) so I went to the dentist today. Luckily I'm not in any pain but I'm sure there will be plenty of time and dentist visits to give me some pain. So I had x-rays and a consultation with a dentist today who says I need to get my teeth cleaned, a root canal, and a crown. Yippie, I can't wait. I am very bad about going to the dentist, so it is not surprising that I need a little work. It has been around 8 years since the last time I went. I know, it's bad and there is no reason for not going.... well except for the pain and the horrible sounds that dentists make while drilling in your mouth... ick. The fun will begin once I get back from vacation... I don't feel the need (and neither did the dentist) to hurry and get it done in a few days.

They left me alone for a few minutes, so I took some pictures :) Not very good (used my cell phone) but you get the idea
Look at those evil sharp tools..... they are just waiting to cause me pain
