My tooth has hurt since i was pregnant (dd is 2ms), I know I need a root canal but i wanted to wait until she was bigger because I suck at pumping, plus dh has a lot going on at work there is no time for me to go to the dentist. My tooth just hurts so much and I feel like it isn't subsiding at all.

I would get it taken care of soon. If the damage gets too bad, you don't want them to have to take the whole tooth. Root canals aren't that bad at all.

I agree, plus you run the risk of getting an infection. Especially after baby, they suck all the nutrients right out of you.

Just go to the dentist. If it gets all infected and into your blood stream you are going to be down for sure.

There is no down time for my root canals.  In fact i just took 800mg of ibuprofen for the pain. YOu can do it.

Please get your tooth taken care of if you are able to.  I have a horrible fear of dentists, which is completely justified by the way no matter what!, and anytime that I have an issue I go, even though I don't like them.  Good luck! :)

I had two root canals done in under an hour (it was two left front teeth) it was quick because of only having 1 root. The pain afterwards does hurt, but its worth it to get it done. You wont feel any pain once everything heals and you run the risk of getting an infection if you dont get it taken care of soon. I had an infection before I got mine done and they put me on antibiotics. They numb you pretty damn good.
