Hi, I'll try and keep this brief if I can. I am 35, have PD and GAD. With the help of an occupational therapist I made limited progress ( I can operate within a limited radius of my home). My anxiety couldn't be considered as under check as it fluctuates on an unpredictable day to day basis. I don't have dental anxiety, just an everything anxiety, cant go to doctors (home visits) opticians (home visits) and so on. I realise in the general parlance that's just enabling me and the anxiety and am working on it. Anyway, I had a filling a long while ago, and recently a part of the tooth surrounding the filling came away. There wasn't a lot of height to the tooth (it had split and she gave it an angled profile down to the lingual side). So the little corner broke off, I think below the gumline (twas a tiny bit of tooth left, filling is still there and my tongue is too big for a diagnostic prod in the hole). Anyway, the crux of my problem is this. I cant go to a dentist but know I need it fixed. I got myself some of the DIY filling stuff but my anxiety wont let me use it. Firstly is it safe to use near gumlines (glass ionomer), secondly should I bung some in to protect while I procrastinate on actually contacting a dentist. Do dentists do home visits, or do mobile dentists exist? I cant find any reference on sainted google to such a service in or around Glasgow (Scotland). Or should I contact my dentist who probably thinks I don't exist as I haven't been near them in around 7 years lol. Well aimed kicks up the backside or a shove in the right direction gratefully received. Thanks.
