I have severe phobia of the dentist

Hello Dr Pinder.Iam going to loose my teeth I have phobia of dentists my teeth are in a bad way. I can not face going and I tried to commit suicide two weeks ago just to be rid of this fear. I have no life ,my doctors has put me on diazapan which makes me sleepy. Please help.

Hello
Firstly diazepam will not be sufficient to help you get over the suicidal thoughts .
If you are feeling so bad then I suggest that you ask your GP as soon as possible for a referral for some psychological help , but please please tell him that you are so depressed .
You need to try and pluck up courage to at least see a dentist who can then start to help you . There is a special service at Guys hospital for severe dental anxiety , and there are Community Dental Services which also help people like yourself .
Just opening up your fears is a good start .
