I haven’t been to the dentist for ten years

I haven’t been to a dr. in about 10 years, other then for emergencies & I’m having 4 teeth pulled & 3 filled tomorrow & I’m scared of dying. I haven’t had any bad experiences at the dentist but I do have terrible anxiety about doctors and big procedures.

Hello
I assume you are having some form of sedation ?
Please make sure you talk to the people who are treating you to tell you how this works and is really safe for you .
your feelings of panic and anxiety this evening are understandable , just tellling someone how you are feeling can help .
I wish you all the best and by this time tommorrow you will have got rid of your bad teeth
