I got my back bottom right molar out today! I was so nervous at first but I found a dentist that handled my phobia well. Not only were they super kind but they accommodated me and my gag reflex and my bad decay. Today was the first time in my life I didn’t take any anxiety medicine or gag during an appointment! I cried after out of relief. And the dentist helped me find an insurance plan I can get on fast plus recommend me to an oral surgeon for any more complex extractions! I’m honestly so excited that I conquered this hurdle and can slowly start my journey to having a smile I love!! Finding this dentist really helped and, though I’m sore from the extraction, I have to admit this soreness is nothing compared to the pain of the tooth! I greatly believe that the RIGHT dentist was the thing that was missing for me and having a dentist that was compassionate helped so much! I have never NOT gagged during an appointment and this time the appointment was so relaxed and I left with a smile. I’m so proud of myself for not needing to be sedated for an extraction and not gagging once!!! I’ll be making another appointment with him for another extraction after this one heals and I’m honestly, for the first time, excited about it!
