A huge thing for me to do is seeing the dentist, some mite take it for granted & make it out to be a walk in the park ...but not for me tbh .... Well the anxiety starts all over again .. 2nd appointment today in 3hrs 30 mins & second in 30 years ,🤦 really hate this feeling.. constant worry , no wonder I stayed away from the dentist all that time 🤦.... This is the only place I come to to talk to good people who understand and support each other ♥

2 side front extractions one which has been broke off completely at the gumline been like this for years..so not looking forward to this at all, I actually asked the dentist will that be hard to take out? He actually said a very quick NO 👀, which was reassuring, but doesn't change my thinking .. oh and a filling ...hardly slept or ate any food for days ...just the way iam wired tbh

Hopefully everything goes smoothly and quickly and most of all pain free, just want it over and home and the anxiety to subside ...really Hate this tbh 🥺and myself when it comes to this situation... Thanks again guys for the messages of support I've had yesterday and last night .. really appreciate them

Jay45169, if I calculated right, you're just about having it done. Sending well wishes, good vibes and you got this! If it helps, taking out teeth broken at the gumline is often much easier then otherwise. Hang in there and let us know how it went! :clover: You got this! :cheer2:

So here we go again...dentist at 2pm 🤦.. the anxiety begins again 😳🥺.... The routine of not eating or sleeping again 🤦... Have to get a root taken out today at the front which has been like this for a long long time ,, another dreaded moment , hopefully I don't feel anything. Think he'll have to cut the gum to get at it , but iam not the professional..I asked him before about if would that be difficult to get out ,,it was a quick NO which was good ...but your always dreading it , but sure I dread every dentist visit ,, hopefully fingers crossed iam in and out quick
