Hi there please be gentle it's my first post here ...stumbled across this when googling dental phobia ..reading some of the posts on here has made me realise I am not the only one going through this so I bit the bullet and booked an appointment for Thursday I am having palpitations thinking about it but that first step has been made ...my teeth have been neglected for years due to bad experience at student dentist years ago and also a bad bout of depression which I have since overcome ...the only thing stopping me being fully happy is my teeth I have about 6 crumbed teeth and feel so ashamed I have let it get to this I am scared the dentist will run a mile when he/she looks in my mouth ? but I need to sort this ..anyone any tips to calm myself down so I actually go to the appointment please ? I feel sick at the thought of it my hands are trembling typing this .. Ohh I need to beat this!!!
