After YEARS of failing to do so, I made a appointment for a exam to see what it will cost me to get my top front teeth repaired/replaced. I was shaking and almost dropped my phone, the receptionist was nice, but my appointment isn't until Nov 11th (They are only open on Weds because of Covid) and that gives me plenty of time to chicken out! I have general anxiety and dental anxiety! but what is worse is not only did I have VERY bad front teeth cavities (I am even embarrassed to admit this here (again)) but during lockdown (back in the middle of covid months, when everything was closed) one of my front teeth completely BROKE OFF, which was the last straw for me and I cried for hours. I was already mentally exhausted because of the state of my teeth and having to live this way for years, but that just broke me completely. I have been coming to these forums and reading other peoples struggles and stories for years, to try and finally get that courage I so badly needed, but I could never make that FIRST step. Too scared. Too EMBARASSED. ? And honestly, I feel like my teeth are the WORST ones on this website compared to other people. ? I have other cavities too, tons, but my front teeth (ya know the ones people see FIRST if you talk to them) are my worst, always have been and I hate myself for letting it go this long ? Sorry my post is long, but I guess I came for support and encouragement from fellow scardy cats like me ???
