I'm 47 female and grew up in the UK in the 1970s with 'barbaric' dentist which lead me to develop an extreme dental phobia
I've had a lot teeth problems because of this I've only 26 left and my last wisdom tooth is playing up with in off pain
Plus my bottom front 2-4 teeth are badly decayed
I need to get this sorted as its making me depressed but I'm scared I've cancer or I'll get told off for letting my teeth get so bad.

I have to make an appointment which where I live is hard to get one and it's very expensive


Anyone got any words of advice :(
Thankyou

The dentist near us isn't very nice he lost his patience with my daughter as she was scared
I've emailed them explaining how I feel and if they could see me
Thanks for replying I'm glad you found a nice dentist
