I am too scared to go to the dentist
Hi there. I am contacting you for sOne advice. I have a fear of dentists. Not just a fear, I’ m absolutely petrified. So much that I’ve really let my teeth get into a right state. I’m at the stage now where I dont want my teeth to look like this anymore. It is really affecting my confidence badly, and I am a very confident person!! I can’t pinpoint exactly what the fear is, all I know is that it effects me very badly/severely. I’m at the point where I must get my teeth sorted out completely as its really getting me down now. I’m asking you for some advice as I really am so scared.
Please help me – I’m desperate.
Hello If you go to www.dentalfearcentral.org there are people like you who support each other .
You may be able to find a dentist who others have had success with .
However you need to take the small steps to get to finding out what you need first .
having an assessment doesn’t commit you to having treatment and dentists will not do anything else on the first visit .
take someone with you , and accept that you will feel anxious before the visit
Try to imagine yourself with nice teeth , waking up tommorrow not thinking about them all the time , thats what you are aiming for , but it takes action to get there
Hope this helps a bit
