Hi, I'm 24 years old and I've never been to a dentist. I posted here once already explaining why and you all were really nice to me and helpful so thank you a lot It's embarrassing but ever since then I kept waiting as if my cavity was going to magically fix itself but well, it didn't. It got worse and I've been having terrible pain since yesterday, I can't sleep or eat and painkillers help for max. 30 mins. I know this is the time to go. I found a dentist already that has a lof of positive reviews, I can schedule the appointment online and the visit will be on Thursday but I think I'll try calling her tomorrow to see if she can see me sooner cause of the pain. I'm really scared. I have no idea how a dentist appointment looks like. I'm terrified of other people looking at the mess in my mouth sooooo ashamed but also my teeth have been my biggest issue ever since I can remember. Maybe once I go and see what it's like I'll be able to continue going and I'll fix them so I wouldn't need to be ashamed of smiling anymore? That definitely sounds nice. I know I really NEED to go this time but it's so scary. I have huge anxiety so it's making things much worse Can someone please leave some encouraging messages?
