Root Canal Before Bar Exam

Postby streetlawyer » Sun Feb 25, 2018 9:24 am

Been studying since October, failed exam twice, think I can pass now thanks to Seperac and Adaptibar, only fly in ointment is that I cracked molar several months ago and I haven't had a chance to go to Doctor. Broken took has been asymptomatic until two days ago. Sometimes it hurts, sometimes it doesn't. This morning it doesn't. I'm thinking about trying to see Dentist tomorrow (Monday) to see if he can do something about nerve so that it won't bother me on Bar Exam (Tuesday). I want to save tooth if I can. My wife thinks to just pour ambisol on it until after exam. Since it doesn't bother me this morning I'm tempted to leave it until after exam but if it acts up during exam it could break my concentration and make whole experience even more miserable. Anybody have any ideas?

drink only ensure until bar exam is over so you dont aggravate it, and get the strongest painkiller you can tolerate and have it on you during exam and push through, imo.

Go the dentist and ask them for an emergency prescription for whatever painkiller is required to seriously suppress that pain until after the bar. Also, couple that with the gel stuff from CVS or wherever. You got this!

I'm in favor of getting the root canal on Monday, if you can. If it needed to be pulled and you didn't want to deal with a blood mouth, maybe waiting would make sense, but ost-procedure pain from a root canal is minimal to unnoticeable. Why risk a tooth ache popping up at the worst time?
