I just read about people having pain for years after getting a root canal. Now I am so afraid, b/c I am scheduled to get one next week. I have discomfort with hot foods and the top of the tooth is starting to blacken. Eight years ago I was told I needed one but the pain had left, so I put it off. It has returned slightly and I don't know what to do.
I am military and must move to England next month. I have no idea of dental care over there, and I feel like I'm under pressure to get this done before I leave. In the past year I have had some strange health problems with gluten intolerance, so I don't know how my body will react to this invasion. What is your opinion?
