I broke my tooth about 2 years ago and the gums have grown over the broken tooth quite a bit. I’m sure my gums will have to be shaved down because they are high and noticeable if I open my mouth wide enough. I’m so afraid of the dentist I know it has to be done because I’m afraid of it causing other health concerns but my fear keeps me from the dentist. I’m terrified of the surgery how intense it is how long it last and how long will the recovery be? I just need answers I did go to a dentist last year before my gums got to bad and he said the tooth is still in the roots so it had to come out but now my gums have grown so much over the tooth that I’m afraid of the procedure.
