Hi, I hope someone takes the time to read this post as I am desperate to speak to someone about my dental fear. It is so severe that at my last appointment a few weeks ago for two fillings I literally bolted up rite in the chair to prevent the dentist from injecting the anesthetic, my partner who was with me said how ever the needle didnt slash me through the cheek he,ll never know as the dentist was that close to my face. I left the surgery in tears without making another appointment which I so desperately need as i have toothache because of the two fillings I need and also a badly decayed lower wisdom tooth that to my horror has no alternative but to be extracted, I have a distinct bad taste in my mouth and I'm beginning to worry there is some kind of infection going on. Firstly I am terrified of the anesthetic. I'm scared that the dentist may inject into a vessel and also the anesthetic itself may cause me to have a heart attack, second I'm terrified that the dentist may do something wrong during treatment causing further damage or start something only to find the problem a lot worse than he thought it was.
