I haven’t been to the dentist for over ten years

My fear of the dentist is that bad I haven’t been in about 10 years my teeth are beyond repair and am that embarrassed that I can’t even go to the doctors. It is seriously affecting my life and I don’t know what to do.

Im sorry that you are having such a bad time .
Firstly if you havent been for 10 years are you sure that your teeth are beyond repair?
If that is the case , then you might be looking at getting all the rest of your teeth out and getting some dentures .
Once a dentist has looked at you , then a plan can be devised how and where that can be done , There are places that can give you IV sedation , or refer to a hospital to be asleep .
There are Clinical Dental Technicians who make false teeth directly to the public legally , once your teeth have gone , or sometimes the teeth can be placed as soon as the teeth are removed .
Ive done this both ways recently for two clients and they have not regretted getting rid of the teeth that they hate and are causing such grief
Hope this helps
