the thing about root canals

:: The worst part of a root canal is getting to the point where you need one.
:: I'd rather have a migraine than root canal pain.
:: Root canal pain registers as a 7 on a scale of 9, 9 being the most pain I've ever experienced on a scale of 10. (Follow that?)
:: The Novocain shots put my body into brief shock.
:: I start to feel claustrophobic with more than two implements in my mouth.
:: You can fight a gag reflex by keeping your eyes open, focusing on a specific spot on the ceiling, and breathing through your nose.
:: I'm willing to undergo whatever it takes to avoid another emergency root canal.
:: Even braces.
:: And yeah, braces might just happen.
:: I don't want to talk about it.

I've had 2 root canals, and each time I swore I'd do anything not to ever need another. (Evidently I have a short memory.)

Braces, really? Oh dee.

Color me clueless, but how would braces help with root canal avoiding?

Oh dear, this sounds like the worst thing ever! I have gag issues with dental work as well and really have to work not to freak out.
