remember back with the dental fiasco i had with getting a crown and root canal done? and how my gums were really damaged by the endodontist that had to extract my crown in order to do the root canal? well, fortunately, both the endodontist and my regular dentist were right in saying that the gum would heal. it hurts less and less every day and is well on its way to a full recovery (i’m hoping). it’s always nice tracking and noting the progress and diminishing of pain.
