Root canals don't really hurt, I don't see what the fuss is about. I had one last summer and I can honestly say that it wasn't bad, apart from the fact that I had to be in my dentist's chair for way too long

Ambesol should help.

I have had one before. No their not that painful. Just have to sit in the dreaded chair for a while. Thanks for the great visuals. It quit for the time being but it will kick back in a few.

I had one during the summer. The tooth ache was the most excrutiating pain I've felt in my life (and I have broken bones and lost skin all the way down my forearm before). The actual procedure (it was a 3 visit procedure!!) was totally painless. All I felt was pressure.

As for home remedies, one thing that worked for me sometimes was chewing some sugar free gum then sticking the gum on the tooth so no air can get in it. Don't forget lots of ibuprofen. Don't take acetaminophen(sp)...just ibuprofen (Motrin). I think I was allowed about 2000mg a day.
