Re: Would LOVE some answers before appt. on Thursday

I was in a similar situation as you. Before I got my braces on, and the thought of even getting braces, I had a root canel done by my now old dentist. Unfortunately the dentist that did the root canel only filled 1 out of the 3 canels in the tooth and as a result the area kept getting infected. When...

in regards to getting the moulds, ask your hygienist to use luke warm water. This should help with the sensitive tooth and it will also help to quicken the process with how long you have to have the yucky mould stuff in your mouth! The hygienist has done that to me several times now and its that muc...
