I need new teeth after suffering with bulimia but too scared, help?
29th July 2011
A. Im glad you are on the road to recovery , and feel able to try to get your teeth sorted out . 2 things You need to find a dentist you feel you can be open with about the issues you have . Just take things one step at a time , first thing is to find out what you could have done , and ask for explanations of what that would entail . Being able to trust the person who is going to treat you is a big part of being able to succeed . Try to imagine how you might feel when you have finished the work , what positive benefits it would have , and how it would help your recovery to continue . Having dental treatment involves some stages . the first being that you allow someone to have a look , perhaps with just a dental mirror , that will help to start the process of desensitising your fears . Getting over bulimia is hard , but you have done it. Getting over the next fear will be another step forward Good luck Jenny
