Hello Im sorry to hear you have such anxiety problems about your teeth .
You would like to have sedation to get the treatment you need .
Its quite common to feel the need to go to the toilet with anxiety thats strong , but it does pass .
You know that you have 5 teeth that possibly need to come out , a second opinion may help you to decide this .
however you say you have seen teeth worse than this which have been save d, but how do you know the condition of these teeth in relation to yours ?
Your teeth condition may be completely different ?
If you go with the extraction option then its possible to have sedation and have them all out at one sitting and get rid of the problem .
You have made a very positive first step going to the first this should not be forgotten! dentist
