Anxious patient

I have developed a phobia returning to the dentist. I have a cracked tooth that is close to the nerve. The tooth is not hurting me at all. The local dentist thinks that I should have root therapy treatment. I have had this done once before and I do think this contributed to my stress and anxiety. Presently my tooth is stable. It is not hurting me, however, they have just put a temporary dressing in, which has made me anxious about eating and this filling falling out. I’m thinking about going to a sleep dentistry. My anxiety with my tooth has lead me to prescribe medication..please help me with some reassurance
