I'm a bit of a lurker so I'll admit this is my first post (though I've been here frequently for a while, and I stumbled upon this thread!)
I do not have a B&A picture to show,
however this thread has inspired me quite a bit!
I'm off to the dentist for the first time in five years after...well..
not brushing much in that five years either (maybe for a whole six months?? which is super gross to say!) I was a silly teenager, okay, I still am kind of a teen at nearing twenty, but I guess thats no excuse huh?
I was hurt a lot by my past dentist, he wasnt careful at all, he stabbed and made my tongue and cheeks bleed, my gums. He missed and ugh, it was just awful every single time!
I'd brush nowadays but my gums are so sore when I brush.
I hate it, it hurts so badly! So I only do it when I feel I have to.
When it comes to dentistry, I worry a lot, my anxiety kills my stomach and its just awful! Do any of you feel that way? My teeth are not black, I have a few black spots on one front tooth, and its starting to spread I think, which is why I begged my sister to call an "emergency" (just xrays and a cleaning tbh) appointment for me today, in less than four hours! I'm scared, I hate the pain and I know I have a lot of tarter build up around the gum lines. I know I only have one tooth thats damaged, but maybe I have more? My previous silver fillings are hurting quite a bit for some strange reason, I hate they're silver, I would have went with white if I had the money! Would have, should have!
Anyway, my worries are over in the next six hours. You guys, your smiles have made me feel a lot better, and I hope this thread continues to thrive with photos and stories; I'm eager to hear them all, as I'm sure a lot of others are too.
