      Default I did it, so can you!

      After 8 years of not seeing the dentist, a few weeks ago I finally did it! I brush my teeth, but unfortunately ended up with a LOT of cavities in those 8 years. With two separate appointments to get them all filled, I was terrified. Crying every day, popping xanax just to sleep at night. But I went. My mother drove me in because I was shaking so badly. I popped myself down in the chair and was immediately offered sweet air, which I think was a life saver in the end. It got me nice and relaxed, and I was able to lie back in the chair. My doctor and nurse were absolutely amazing, soothing me the entire time. I didn't even notice when the Novocain went in, and didn't feel a thing at all, just a few moments of pressure. I just got done with my second appointment today, and my teeth are clean and cavity free! I have some soreness when I eat, and I was numb for a good while after, but everythings going great.

      Just remember you CAN do it!
