So to start this off I'm only 21 and for the most part of my life I've had a major phobia of the dentist with no known cause for this I just generally hate the thought of someone sticking a needle in my face and grabbing around my mouth with metal instruments but putting that aside I put my fear aside and went for a tooth extraction last Friday which went well BUT that tooth was only one of many problems in fact on the phone while making the appointment, also during I explained the other issue's I had and obviously the dentist was aware of them when she had looked but basically on top of the tooth that has already been extracted, I have a molar on the back that is nearly completely broken, and one of my upper canine teeth that had root canal work done on it a few year's back is completely broken to the gum line and the dentist just left them in there, and to be honest out of all the teeth in my mouth these two are giving me the most problems was my dentist right in leaving them in there? and to explain a little further, when i do go to the dentist "which is rare" I usually see the same specialist dentist but making an appointment with him can take month's of time just to be seen so the dentist i had seen this time was completely new to me and after the extraction she'd recommended I was to make an appointment with my regular dentist but the next available appointment is in July? I'm really stuck with what to do here, and i don't know how to go about it...though i should add I'd like to have denture's fitted and I don't know the process of that either? no information was given to me just a gauze stuck in my mouth and an appointment made for months down the line so any help with this situation would be much appreciated!
