What is it that I am actually scared of?

A. Thank you for taking the time to ask your question. Getting there is half the solution . What happens when they start to look .What exactly are you afraid of ? Its possible just to look with a dental mirror rather than the poking about with a probe that many people dread. tell the dentist what you dont like ,it helps to be open . Some people dont like metal instruments such as hand scalers , and may prefer ultrasonic cleaning. Your memory of previous experiences may be being revived and it would help if you tried to change negative thoughts you have . I hope you can get the treatment you need.
