I am 53 years old. I have had many root canals, teeth pulled and loads of other dental work. I can handle most dental pain. This pain was so intense. Unreal pain. No, I don't think it is worth it. But it depends on your own values. One person called it a "zinger", yikes, that's about right. Stabbing sharp extreme pain. I took a couple of Tylenol PM and slept it off. Then had a glass of water when I woke up. Wow, pain.
Unless you are thinking about going on American Idol, my suggestion would be ..... no way!!
The procedure was done properly, my face was protected, as were my gums. All 4 sessions were not bad. But immediately after they took off the protective gauze, the pain set in. The doctor told me only about one percent of people experience this pain. Not sure where she got her statistics.
If you decide to have this procedure, pring Tylenol and Advil with you.
