Too scared to go to the dentist. What can I do at home?

Dear experts, I have a really bad phobia on going to the dentist. I even get scared when just making an appointment. I’av not been to the dentist in over 15years and my teeth are constantly sore and very sensitive with black spots. Is there anything i can do at home without needing to go to the dentist? thanks

I cant really answer this as im not sure whats wrong .
The real answer is you need to see a dentist to see what is happening and get some advice .
Take small steps, ring a dentists practice , youll feel anxious but this will pass. Make an appontment , you will feel anxious but it will pass.
Go to the appointment ,youwill feel anxious , the worst that can happen is that you will find out what the condition of your teeth really is rather than imagining the worst .
you will not be inder any obligation to proceed inless you want to , but you will at least have a choice about what to do , or not to do
