Excellent info and congratulations. Hope the healing process is sooner than later for you. I remember getting some root canals taken out in Jan of 2010 and they did not do it right. I would feel the nerve hurt when I would bite in my upper teeth. I crashed and burned into AF in May of 2010. I was a GUY (still am by the way..LOL) and thought to simply TOUGH IT OUT CAUSE I didn't want to miss work over some little pain in my mouth. The pain eventually left but I know that dentist did not do a good job with me. HMOs or DMOs i think is what their called, i forget.
Anyway, since the pain left I guess i never really thought much about it. I written your course of action down in my journal and will keep it handy for something to look into in the near future.
