Hello there Dr, I am 37 and I haven’t been to a dentist in over 9 years because of my fear of going. I really hope you can try and help me with my problem. I have been suffering a lot with tooth pain lately but am so scared to visit a dentist I was wondering if I asked for a sedative they would agree? I don’t think I can do it without it because I had a very bad time the last time I went to a dentist and it has scared me a lot I don’t want to suffer pain much longer. I know I need to over come my fears and I am really trying. Do you have any suggestions? Thank you for any help in advance.
