Bummer dude!

In the last 12 months, I've had 3 root canals done and subsequent crowns installed as well as a whole host of fun things done to my teeth in an effort to save them. That would have paid for a E-5 AND the 90-250mm + a nice travel bag.

Funny how life interfers with the fun stuff.

I had my first root canal a couple if years ago. The worst part, other than what it cost, was the couple if days I had to wait before I could get in to the dentist. That was painful.

Funny you should mention that, Greg. I had the first half of one done last Thursday. I get to have the rest done this Thursday. While I'm not the vindictive sort, I think I could manage to wish one of these on my worst enemy. heheheh

Your past the worst part, then!

I will say, when they filled in the hole during the second visit that they dug out during the first visit, the "stuff" they used was a warm sensation and did get my attention as it went in!
