Please help I am absolutely terrified of going to a dentist and although I know i have a serious problem with my teeth……. gum disease which is now that bad on one tooth its down to the bone : ( broken teeth, I’m devastated about the way I look and it’s destroying my life, I’m so embarassed and ashamed I’ve let it go on like this but I just cant bring myself to go. Please help with any suggestions or maybe a dentist that will sedate me as I’m in so much pain on a daily basis now I can’t cope. Many Thanks 🙁
Dental phobias are very common and the dental team are well trained to manage such patients. What you need to do obviously is to search for a dentist in your area that offers sedation and start the process by having a full check up to establish your treatment needs. A practice that offers sedation should be well set up to take care of you in a calm and relaxed way. You really do not need to suffer as you seem to be doing. Get to a dentist soon – good luck.
