Nothing Like a Root Canal To Clear the Mind

RootCanalby Anniel4/19/16
First of all, I want you to understand that I love my dentist. He’s one of the nicest people I know. So when he found I had an infection above an old root canal and crown, I thought having him do the new root canal was a no-brainer, even though he warned me that the old root canal looked very small and calcified. He said he could send me to an endodontist or he could try to do the work. If he failed he would seal the tooth and THEN send me to the endodontist. With $$$’s dancing in my mind I chose the dentist, only to find one needs to think these things through more thoroughly.

The first try on the two branches of the root canal left me with new respect for the ins and outs of terror and pain. Just the deadening shots made me sick, and the dental assistant (whom I also like a whole lot) put in at least five shots. The pain from the tooth as the shots were injected went across my upper jaw, then through my ear canal (no roots there), down through the Temporal Mandibular Joint (TMJ), then my left shoulder, my chest and down to my left leg, foot, and toes. I thought I was having a heart attack.

Things went worse from there for an hour-and-a-half that seemed like a hundred years. I think at one point my friendly, sweet dentist had his little finger through the rubber dam and up my right nostril while my left jaw had unhinged and he was trying to drill upwards with his head upside-down and where I could have bitten him, had my mouth not been forcibly propped open.

He finally quit, put in a temporary filling, and made me an appointment for two days later with the previously rejected endodontist. I went home in utter pain and exhaustion. Then I took ibuprofen and went to bed for the next two days. I think Bear was worried.

I got up in time for the endodontic appointment, and said a prayer that the previous experience not be repeated. At the Endo’s office I went back to a nice room with my choice of music. The endodontist said “please” and “thank you” to everyone, including me. He used only three deadening injections that caused no pain, looked my mouth over, warned me that my canals were so small he might have to cut then open from above to clean them out. Then he went to work. He used an electron microscope, explaining everything to me, and found the problems of both canals. He cleaned the calcifications out, then cleaned the canals with bleach (Clorox?) to kill the bacteria. He sealed them up, and sent me back to the dentist for the final filling.

It’s a toss-up as to who is the nicest of the people who worked on me. Today I feel like a new person– and I even listened to Rush this morning. He was talking about the eGop and other establishment figures in Washington D.C. and how they fail to understand the anger of people in so-called “fly-over country.” He mentioned the “calcified tentacles” the so-called “elites” have developed in the capital, with no knowledge or concern for ordinary people, Democrat or Republican, like you and me. That our government has failed us miserably. The majority of us who love our culture and country want the government gone and the whole place closed and sanitized.

While he was describing the problem, it dawned on me that what Washington needs is a Root Canal to remove the entrenched calcifications, no matter what the pain. It doesn’t matter who the D.C. dentist or endodontist is, just SOMEONE TO GET THE JOB DONE. he doesn’t even have to be the most “conservative.” He needs to be tough, with the courage to call out the powers that be and kick them out, bleach the whole place to clean it thoroughly, seal the infections, and let people breathe and be free again.

While he’s at it, he can clean up the lying scum of the MSM along with the politicians. Wouldn’t it be nice to be rid of people like little Georgie Porgie Stephanopoulis, Charlie Rose,Wanted4Questioning Chris Matthews, et al? And get rid of the agencies abusing their authority? Start by closing the Department of Education, then suing the EPA bureaucrats, as individuals, for releasing the toxic mining waste into the rivers leading to the Colorado River, take all of their powers away from them. And those IRS rats, Koskinen and Lerner, and Jeh Johnson, head of Veteran’s Affairs, put them in jail, along with their henchmen.

Wait! Back up. Where I said start by closing the Department of Education, well I made a mistake, the Justice Department should be the starting point, yes? Or maybe the State Department? THEN Education? Hard choices to be made all over the Bureaucracy. And Obama’s Executive Orders and medical malpractices. . .

If I thought Cruz could do it, I’d vote for him. But I have some serious doubts about him. I have doubts about Trump, too. But anyone who can scare the precious idiots when his name is written on a sidewalk or wall with chalk, just might be able to handle the job. • (647 views)

    Unfortunately, the idiots Trump’s name scares are college students, not Beltway Bandits (though they certainly don’t like either him or Cruz). Perhaps the best analogy for dealing with Versailles-on-the-Potomac would be the Augean stables.

    I’ve never had a root canal, though I was scheduled for one once when one of my teeth abscessed. But the tooth itself broke up first, so they ended up just removing it. This was no doubt a lot less painful as well as cheaper. Unfortunately, my regular dentist has now retired. I’ve been to the same office for over 45 years (though not always the same dentist there), but now I’ll have to change.

      Indeed, it is the precious snowflakes who are “frightened” by chalking, but it is the supposed adults, including the politicos, who do the indulging. Bear wants the lies to stop, and I want the perpetual student babies to grow up enough to recognize truth when it confronts them. Where are the adult role models? I’ve shoveled pig stys and barns. I’d do it again, too, Augean or not.

    I think you may be attacking the wrong end. I would prescribe a hemorrhoidectomy.

    Hope you are feeling better.
