I am very nervous about going to the dentist after many years
I am a nervous patient that has not been to the dentist for about 15 years. I am so fed up with not being able to smile properly and it has caused problems in my life. I do suffer from anxiety and depression and also have a heart condition. I have teeth missing on my top row and a few stumps. I recently chipped two teeth on the bottom row. I know i need too get these sorted and i am desperately trying to face facts and push myself to get these sorted. When i was younger (about 8) i had most of my teeth extracted except for my 8 front teeth.
I still do not know why this was. I do need extensive work but i am on benefits because of my mental health.
Any help or recommendations would be highly appreciated.
I would contact your local PCT and get a list of NHS practitioners who offer sedation services .
Good luck :-)
