Root canal today. #15, upper right rear done and ready for the replacement crown. The endodontist was excellent. Insurance covered 90% of the work except for the CT scan. Mouth is still numb, but jaw hurts. I’ll get over it.

Dude.  I don't feel your pain.  I'v'e had so much work in my mouth including 3 implants, -- including one that failed and had to be removed -- I don't feel pain anymore.

 

But thank you for reminding me that I need to call my dentist/periodontist.

There really was no pain. Discomfort from holding my jaw open for 45 minutes or however long it actually took. My gum around the tooth is irritated. But that will pass in a day or two. Still glad that’s over. Next up, the permanent crown fitting.

Excellent coverage! My dental insurance has similar coverage.

It covers 80% of the crown I just got and I'll find out on Aug. 27 how much I'll have to pay on top of the $25 annual deductible.

I broke #14 upper right and got a temporary crown on July 23rd.  I get the permanent one on Aug. 27th, plus an overdue cleaning and checkup.
