I was wondering if anyone might be able to offer me some advice:
I found out on last week that I need to have root canal treatment on a lower molar. I'm an extremely nervous dental patient and am absolutely terrified at the thoughts of this procedure! However I trust my dentist and really want to get the whole process over asap - I've been having nightmares about being in the chair and am finding it impossible to concentrate in work without images of drills and needles flashing into my mind!!
Luckily my dentist is available to complete the root canal within two weeks - I have an appointment next Saturday when he will do the initial treatment (extraction), and then another the following Saturday when he will fill the cavity.
I've had a trip to Paris planned for March 17th since Christmas. I'm really looking forward to the trip and am now seeing it as a kind-of reward for getting through the root canal! However it seems from browsing the internet that some people experience pain when flying after dental treatments. I was wondering if anyone has experienced this before, and if it is safe for me to fly only five days after having a root canal treated?
I've been searching for a concrete answer but can't find one - any help or advice on this matter would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance for any replies!
