Toothache...ugh!

I have another toothache.  Let me just stress how incredibly MAD, upset, and frustrated I am with this.  No matter what I do, I always have teeth problems.  If I go to the dentist and I don't have any cavities, I'm actually surprised.  I brush my teeth twice a day, floss every single day, use mouthwash, and chew gum that's supposed to be good for your teeth.  I also had a root canal last year which was really upsetting to me because 1.) it's so unhealthy for you and 2.) and its SO FREAKING EXPENSIVE. 

I was just at the dentist 2 months ago and he actually said everything looked good.  I was shocked!  But now, my bottom front tooth is hurting and when I look in the mirror, I can see a dark spot.  If I end up needing a root canal (which really wouldn't surprise me), I'm going to be so bummed.  I don't know what else I can do to stop this from happening?!?

So I called the dentist this morning and it figures, today is a holiday and they're not there.  Now I have to worry about how quickly I'll be able to get in there and what they'll tell me.  When things like this happen, I just obsess over them until I find out what's wrong.  I really wish I could just let it go and not care.  I know I'm not dying from a toothache, but I can't help but worry what the outcome will be.  I just don't want another root canal!

Sorry I'm rambling and complaining so much.  I'll probably get an appointment for sometime this week, so I'll be sure to keep you all posted.  

Hope you all are having a better Labor Day than me! :-(

So sorry to hear about your tooth...that really sucks.
I'm assuming that because your profile says enjoy Pittsburgh sports you are just as excited as we are that the Steelers kick off this weekend...we're huge fans down here in Virginia Beach (in fact, my son's Heath Miller jersey should be arriving any day!).
Good luck with your tooth; my fingers are crossed for you:)

Yuck! My poor hubby has terrible problems with his teeth and has had several root canals over the last few years. The dentist told him it could have been from medicine he took in his teen years.... Hope everything turns out ok- toothaches are the worst!

Sending you a big hug!

Thank you for the sweet comment on my Blog :) And I'm sorry about the toothache. My husband just had a root canal a couple weeks ago- and they ARE expensive! Let's hope you don't need one... keep us updated.
