I am afraid of having my teeth extracted

I am afraid of my teeth being extracted because its bad and broken and to make things worst its my teeth to the back of my mouth. I really want them out but am so depressed at times and they really hurt. If i take paracetamol or panadol its stops just for a few and then it starts to hurt even more worst than before. Is something else wrong with my teeth than the problems i feel? Thank you for reading my problem and I will be waiting to hear what you advise for me to do

Hello
Im sorry you are suffering .
Youve recognised that the teeth are bad and that they hurt . This is making you depressed as its always there with you .
Its highly likely that your teeth are just decayed and nothing more serious .
Once you have plucked up courage to get them removed it will probably be a big relief .
Not doing anything means nothing will change but get worse.
Talk to the dentist about your fears .
Hope this helps
Jenny
