Dodged That Bullet… For Now

I went to see the dentist today, because I had a corner of a back molar chip on me. They agreed it needed to be fixed, and took X-rays (digital X-rays… neat!). Turned out it had chipped to expose a large cavity… so large it nearly went to the root. After some discussions we decided to try filling it — the risk was that if it went to the root, it was root canal city (ouch). Luckily, the good Dr. was able to fill it without exposing the root. Of course, if I start having sensitivity in a week, or if it cracks/cavities again… I’ll have to get a root canal. But for now… bullet successfully dodged!
