Hi everyone,thank you for letting me join this group,I am so glad I have found it! I have a fear,not of the needle or the drill but a fear of the sensation when I get the jag..it makes me feel like I can't breathe and my throat is going to close. I get myself jnto a state and start taking panic attacks and cry and just make a complete idiot of myself. My fear is so bad that just have not visited a dentist in years and most of my teeth have fallen out since being pregnant with my daughter 17yrs ago..I am so embarrassed and hardly go out, don't smile so much and cover my mouth when i talk. I have finally taken the leap after a particularly bad episode of toothache and I have an appointment in March which I am dreading! I am going to ask to have all my teeth out. Has anyone else had this done and does anyone else share my fear?
