An endodontist will gas a root canal if the tooth is abscessed or if there is already a lot of trauma to the tooth for whatever reason. There are situations where novocaine is not enough. There are also times where they have a dental wuss on their hands. It happens.

omg that's hilarious I thought he was having oral surgery or something but a root canal? That's funny. Oh well guess he's got some big time fear of it.

Maybe he just liked the photo of a jock strap on his face so he sent it to all his fans.

KOL stopped and cancelled a whole outdoor show because a pigeon pooped on one of them so this doesn't surprise me.

Actually root canals these days are a piece of cake. IF you go to the right endodontist who has the high tech equipment. The last three root canals I've had have taken no more than 15 minutes each, not including the time it takes for the novocaine to take effect. No gas needed. No pain, SUPER fast. Seriously, less than 15 minutes. A bit more expensive than 'regular' root canals but soooo worth it.

Is gas really standard in the US for those little things?
No need to suffer but, what about local anesthesia with a needle?

Total Wuss!! Who gets GAS to have a measly little root canal?? And TMZ, you guys are dumb to say, it's " one of the most hated surgeries"...It's not considered surgery!! I thought he was having his WISDOM TEETH removed, by the way your caption sounded! Now wisdom teeth removal IS a SURGERY!

If you have the right dentist and s/he knows what they're doing, a route canal procedure can be as routine as teeth cleaning.

I feel bad for him.
