I phoned an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> endodontan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>t, who called in Penicillin VK 500 mg for me.

Endo said no signs of infection just a lot of inflamation. She did say the roots tried to "heal themselves" and closed up on her while doing the root canal so she had to work a lot longer on an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> canals.

I'm struggling with tooth #19. I do go to the dentan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>t every six months and I've had lots of work done and on top of all of that, I'm a dental coward. Believe me I physically shake when I go in and I can't control it. So of course I get gas and yes I do relax, but it's almost as if I'm under because the gas just completely puts me in another zone.

Tsang was correct, and an style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>myan> dentan style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>isan>t will have to go back into the tooth.
