Hello, dear people! :hug5::jump::jump::jump:I am so so happy today because I have won this big battle with dental problems, and more importantly with the fear of dentists.

If someone wants to read my story, you can find it here.

I highly recommend reading it because it can be useful.
So, ever since the end of August, I went three times to the dentist. The first time was so difficult, I almost had a panic attack there, but I somehow managed to stay calm. :):jump:

I haven't been to the dentist's office since 2007. I am turning 19 in December and it was so difficult for me to see my friends with white, healthy teeth. I couldn't share my fear with anyone. Then, I found this magnificent place and I met some magnificent people who have helped me a loooooooot! I can't even describe how much.

I extracted my wisdom teeth, before that I had had all cavity removed and finally I had teeth whitening today! The dentist said that the effect of whitening should last 2-3 years and maybe even more. Today, my teeth are just as white as my skin is. I thought that my situation was much worse than it turned out. I only had 6 fillings on unvisible teeth and I also got rid od those wisdom teeth.:):):)
I won't lie to any of you. It was EXTREMELY difficult. I didn't feel the pain during the process, the worst part was entering to that place, then everything was easier.:):)
I am not only encouraging teenagers, I also want to encourage all the older people who are maybe reading this story and trying to find the power to arrange an appointment.

I had read lots of stories here and I realised that I was not lonely in this.

Special thanks to Kim, Aldrige, Steve In Cleveland, Patti, MC, and toucan for posting in my previous topic!
I will say a little prayer for all of you because you really helped me so so so much!:jump:

P.S. I am ready to live a new chapter of my life!:)
Best wishes to all of you!:clover::clover::clover:
