A hole in my crown

A few months ago I had a same-day crown put on, and I’ve had pain and sensitivity in the tooth ever since. I had the crown adjusted in early December, and it became a little easier to chew, but the problems persisted.

Chewing—even soft foods—had been mostly restricted to one side of my mouth since before Thanksgiving. And the hot/cold sensitivity had gotten so bad that I had to warm up mouthwash on the other teeth before letting it touch the crown.

So it was sad, but not surprising, to learn that my toothache reached the point of needing a root canal today. Thankfully, the endodontist was able to make a tiny hole in my crown, and seal it back up after finishing the root canal. He did a great job and I’m already able to drink cold water freely!

After more than three months of pain and sensitivity, today’s #OneGoodThing was getting my tooth fixed. What was your #OneGoodThing today? Please share in the comments!
