I have developed such a severe phobia of anything having to do with the dentist, just thinking of it right now has me shaking and crying and its very hard to breathe. The last time I saw a dentist was something like 12 years ago or even longer. I have tried to get it together and even have some dentists who have been highly recommended but I freeze and can't even make the call. I don't understand this because I had biannual cleanings and checkups as a kid, I even had braces for awhile and remember the trips were frequent, I even spent time working in a dentists office as a teenager, it was a relatives practice. Meanwhile, I know that I have problems and they are going to get worse. Right now I am getting bits of a crown disintegrating or something, feels like sand in my mouth and really want to have the hygienist scrub and polish my teeth, but can't get my body to cooperate and it just is like I shut down and I just don't even want to see or talk to anyone for a day or 2. Advice??
