I tried so hard to stay in my zen place but the procedure was so *absolutely* violent I could not.
It was one of the most brutal things I've had to endure, and this went on for almost a full hour.
Root canal procedures cost roughly $3,200 out of pocket. So I had to come up with this amount of money in order for the root canal.
The tooth had been ok for awhile after starting the procedure in summer of 2014, and then started to rot again in my head, causing me a lot of horrible pain during the last few months of that year.
In January 2015, I went to Tufts dental school and had a tooth extracted that I had started a root canal on the year prior, and couldn't afford to finish then.
