Where Can I Find a Dentist to Deal with My Prognathism?
Good day Doctor Pinder,
I have a really huge fear of the dentist. It started out when I had a very horrible and difficult extraction. Anyhow, because of this fear I lost a lot of teeth as I am so scared to see a dentist. My oral health at the moment is really bad and it makes me really anxious and embarrassed. I can’t smile properly and find it awkward to do so. So I have decided to have my teeth check by a dentist who understands and deals with nervous patients. I really need my teeth done, as my friends tease me about it and my self confidence is almost non-existent. I have also a bad bite problem and prognathism, which is affecting me now socially. Hoping for your response. Thank you.
Hello, well done for starting to tackle your fear.
You need to find a dentist. Firstly will it be NHS or Private?
I suggest you go onto www.dentalfearcentral.org – there are some dentists on there around the country who have been tried out by others like you and that might be a start.
Tackling prognathism is a more major thing and you need to just make small steps and get your teeth healthy first. Hope this helps, Jenny.
