The relief really is brilliant. Just keep going and fixate on the moment it’s all done and you’re out the door!

Best of luck for your appointment tomorrow Jay 🍀, could you let your dentist know how much you’re dreading the top injections? Sometimes it’s as easy as leaving the numbing gel on for longer and really slowing down while numbing you up. Keeping my fingers crossed 🤞!!

Good cats 👍 2 fillings done today 😅.. the injection was abit deeper this time but wasn't to bad & never felt anything during the fillings ..another bit ticked off ... Back nxt Monday tho for another 2 .... Then start on my top front teeth next which need crowns & bridges so fingers crossed it all goes smoothly .. thanks for asking

Good job jay!!! Every visit gets you closer to being finished all the work! I go back in a few weeks for more fillings. Can’t wait for it all to be over! We will celebrate with our fixed teeth then :)

hey Jay, im brand new here but im in a similar boat. Im 30 and have avoided the dentist for years and now im facing the music of having to go back after a rear tooth cracked in half. Anyway, your thread has provided me some peace of mind. thanks for that :)

Good luck with your appointment today!

If I can do it after 30 years anyone can Geo trust me...the state my teeth where in .I put it off for so long went through unimaginable pain tbh don't know how I even done it, the anxiety is still bad but once iam in there I actually settle down it's just the thinking of it .... Glad it has helped
