Tooth #5

I had a root canal yesterday on #5.  I was really worried and upset about it (no good reason since I had one last year that was fine), but as soon as the endodontist got going on it, I was fine.  There was this bizarre ceiling tile above the patient chair showing two guys riding a bicycle on water.  I think it must have been there to distract kids in the chair because it seemed to be one of those “find which parts don’t belong” type of pictures.

Apparently XM 25 is the dental channel.  This is the second dentist I’ve been to who listens to that channel.

And now I finally know what a dental dam is!  I think the one they put on me was chocolate flavored.  This is the best picture I could find, though I only had one tooth protruding.
