Root Canal Root Canal Root Canal Root Canal Root Canal

A few months ago, I realized that I get dental insurance with my school’s health insurance package. Well, let me back up… About a year ago, I was eating some granola at CZ and half of my tooth chipped off. My back molar had broken off and there was nothing I could do. It never started hurting so I figured I was lucky that it wasn’t a visible area and that It was only cosmetic. Fast Forward —-> I go to the dentist for a check up and she can’t believe I am not in pain. Apparently the roots of my tooth were open and collecting bacteria (as shown in the XRAY dark spots) and usually that causes pain. Anyway, I had to schedule a root canal and get a crown. The dentist was nice enough to let me photograph some of the procedure. I now have a temporary alluminum crown in my mouth and a plethora of Vicodin. See more pics here.

My name is Matt Coneybeare, I design and develop for iOS (iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch), Mac OS X and the Web out of New York. In 2008 I started a software company called Urban Apps that has made some pretty popular apps such as Ambiance and Hourly News. My current Stack Overflow reputation is about 27k.

I was a Rockstar a decade ago, but then went back to school and collected a Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science from U.C. Berkeley. Now I am settled down with my beautiful wife Di and our two doggies Hamachi and Foxy. While coding, I walk several miles/day on my Treadmill Desk. When not at my desk, I love exploring New York City as a Yelp Elite, or training for marathons.
