My teeth are rotting but I fear going to the dentist

Hi I sent a question a couple of weeks ago with no reply I really want to have my teeth done mainly the one I’ve glued in over the rotting ones. Its just even to think of the dentist makes me sick. I’ve been to the doctor and I’m on citalopram which I think is helping.

Hello
Im sorry you have not received a reply . Im quite good at quick replies usually !
Its good that you are finding the Citalopram helpful .
But the bottom line is that before you can get better you have to find a way to get to see a dentist and let them have a look .
I suggest that you look at www.dentalfearcentral.org where there are other people who have the same problems to chat to .
although your anxious feelings are uncomfortable , they will gradually damp down as you read and chat .
Another good resource for anxiety is on a website for Anxiety Uk
