OK so I have just finished my root canal treatment and I have to say that fear and anguish wise they were equal but the ablation had longer after effects. However my dentist has still referred me to hospital for an extraction as she reckons it will still be necessary but did the RC treatment to save me pain as there is a year's wait! Turns out she can do the extraction as long as I have a letter from my GP - the problem with NOAC s apparently is delayed bleeding. Considering the problems I had the last time I had an extraction without any anticoagulation I'm a bit worried.....
