This is really embarrassing but unfortunately I just found out I need 6 cavities filled! They're all between my teeth and I admit I'm awful at flossing but I won't be anymore!! Lol! 3 of the cavities are very deep, the dentist said they'll probably need a pulp cap. Anyway, I hate the dentist and get so nervous. We're not doing all the fillings in one sitting, 2 each time, but I'm wondering if people prefer a dental dam or not? I can't handle cotton, and I feel like I'm choking if things get too far back in my mouth. I did have a dental dam once years ago and I remember thinking it was nice because it blocked everything else out from getting in my throat. But this is a much longer appointment, probably almost an hour and a half he said, so what if I can't handle the dental dam on for that long? But it might be nice to just try and relax without worrying anything will get in my throat. Any advice or opinions welcome!!
