I had a very bad dental experience twenty years ago

I had a really bad experience 20 years ago and I have tried to go to dentist but just cant go through with it my teeth are so bad I have lost most of the enamel on my front top teeth some of broken off im a senior care officer and cant be without teeth can you help.i would like to be completely sedated.

Yes its possible to be completely sedated . However you will need to have an assessment of the condition of your teeth first .
So take it one step at a time . Find the dentist you would like to see , then make an appointment , perhaps find a friend or someone to go with you .
tell the dentist you are extremely frightened and that you are looking for sedation . .
I hope this first start you’ve made will help you take the next positive step
Kind regards
