    I haven't been to the dentist in close to 10 years. I'm way too scared. I can give myself 4 insulin shots every day but the thought of going to the dentist....

    If you're one of those lucky people who has a very healthy mouth, then you have nothing to be afraid of. If you're not, then it will catch up with you and you should be more afraid of what's going to happen when things get bad enough to cause pain and are much more involved and expensive to fix. You can have bad stuff in your mouth with no pain: big cavity, chronic abcess, periodontal disease, cancer.

    You're right about the endodontist, pm. A few years ago I needed another root canal and I was surprised that my dentist didn't want to do it himself, but I guess if it's complicated and they are busy enough with the regular work, why not. It was quick and easy, compared to the first one.

    Funny in that I have never feared the dentist. I've been extemely grateful for their presence, especially the one, picked out of a phone book, that did a root canal at 8:00 at night for me. I was out of town (nowhere close to home). Cost was $80.00, which floored me. Of course, that was in the early eighties.

    Let's see.... 2 teeth pulled, 2 crowns, 2 root canals, skin grafts, bone replacement, 4 wisdom teeth cut out, 4 veneers. Most of that was long term damage from crashing my brother's new spider bike in the 4th grade. He knocked the 2 teeth loose that were eventually pulled when he saw his bike.

    On a side note Spider.........do you know a guy named Herb Gutentag? Friend of mine. He is an endodontist. He actually has patents on some dental tools he created to do root canals.
