DENTAL SPECIALIST IN FRISCO TEXAS
I had the unfortunate need of a dental specialist in Frisco, Texas, this week. I don't wish this on anyone else, but most of us will have such a need at some time in our lives.
My dental adventure started with a visit to my regular family dentist, Dr. Dominic Nuosce at Frisco Family Dentistry. I had been having some pain in a tooth. Dr. Nuosce had warned me on a previous visit that I would eventually need a crown on that tooth. and that the tooth would "talk to me" when it had gone as far as it could.
The tooth started talking to me loud and clear a few days ago. I got in to see Dr. Nuosce, and he said I needed a ROOT CANAL. I have never had a ROOT CANAL before, but have heard awful things about them. Phrases like "I would rather have a root canal than ...(enter something unpleasant) entered my mind."
Dr. Nuosce referred me to a dental specialist in Frisco, Texas, for the root canal.
I saw the specialist, Dr. Micah L. Porter, D.D.S. of The Endodonic Group, Inc. yesterday. I told Dr. Porter I had never had a root canal before, but had always heard it was one of the most painful experiences possible for mankind. He laughed, and told me I would hardly feel any pain at all.
An hour later, Dr. Porter had finished the root canal, and sent me on my way with a packet of prescription strength Motrin to take every 6 hours for 24 hours. I was surprised that the worst part of the procedure was the injections to numb the area, and those were not bad at all. Dr. Porter told me if I experienced any unusual pain to call him anytime, day or night. That was comforting.
A couple of hours later, after the numbing agent had worn off, there was NO PAIN. I even accepted a dinner invitation from friends, and was able to enjoy the evening.
Now, a day later, there is still no pain. I have conquered a major fear in my life - the once dreaded root canal.
Although I hope I will never need to see a dental specialist in Frisco, Texas, again, if I do, I know an endodontist who will take great care of me - Dr. Micah L. Porter, D.D.S., of The Endodonic Group, Inc. in Frisco, Texas.
