I have root canals in 3 or 4 - one is just a crown.

well its better.. but i still am having panic attacks.. my heart is beating heavy all day.

Its better but feels a little tight and a little deep in my gum...and one corner i can get the floss under a bit more than I feel I should be able to.  So i floss and floss and that causes irritation. 

I want to pull it off all the time but i know I cant.  I had a migraine all week from not sleeping well, i took something to sleep last night and now i am exausted.

I have an appointment on Monday to follow up.   Another long unproductive weekend.

You can tell the dentist everything and he will adjust it.  He'll pop it off, grind it, do whatever.  It will be fine. (he will also be able to see where your gum is irritated and adjust the crown in those places.

I hope so!  I hope he will!   That seems so easy!  I wish i could go there right now/

i called a few days ago and told the lady on the phone.. she said i will get used to it..  also i told the dentist when he placed it and he said the gum will grow up around it and it will be fine.

Thank you for your calming words.. i feel like im going to loose it.  I dont want to take something for sleep (anxiety) again.. it made me so sleepy all day.

well i went in today.. he said everything looks good.. he poked around with the stick, said there was no bleeding so that is a good sign.. looked at the xray said everything is fitting well.. he said just to wait more.. to think about it less.

he said he cant fix it if it cant see what is wrong.. sent me home :(  so now i sit with this poking all day every day.

i feel like crying i dont know what to do from here??

he said the gum was healing.. but i didnt feel the problem when the crown was off (when they took the temp off and placed the perm. crown) I didnt feel it then, at all.. so i dont think its healing its poking me
