... I had this procedure done about 10 years ago with only novacaine. Didn't feel a thing. The next day, my upper lip was swollen and huge. They told me to keep icing it. I didn't have any pain, just mild discomfort from the swelling. Tomorrow, I am having another apico done. (6 replies)
... Carrie, I have had several of these done and only with novacaine. You might have some swelling. There will be a few stitches, and some after discomfort, but not really pain. I am not sure of the cost as I do have dental insurance, but it is similar in price to a root canal. Not to worry, if I can do this with only novacaine than how bad can it be!!! You will be fine. ...

... at all. After the novicaine wears off you'll have some pain but they should give you pain medication for that which helps tremendously. You will probably have swelling and maybe bruising but Ice helps tame that down. ... (7 replies)
I'm sorry to hear that you are having all of those complications. But I am glad to hear that you are getting better.:) It must be hard to be going through all of that with a baby to take care of.

... I'm glad to hear yours went well. I had mine Tuesday and they ended up going into my sinus cavity because one of the roots they needed to cut was up there, so I have to be careful not to blow my nose or hold in a sneeze for a week.
