Had a really bad dental experience as a kid you think that would have gave me motivation for better oral hygiene but depression didn't help. So I know I have gingivitis and it might be worse than that. Also have some cavities I think. I stated having some tooth pain last week so now I going hard on the brushing, flossing, water pik, saltwater, and mouthwash. Well now my jaw is sore and not sure if it's the toothache or 360 in oral care. Well I got my first dental appointment in 12 years in a week and I super anxious my teeth are even worse than I think or realize. I'm worried I need all this work done and will be judged my my new dentist or loose teeth and be judged by my peers. This first visit is just xrays and a cleaning to see how bad I am. Ant words of encouragement or advice?
