After years of going back and forth on seeing a dentist today I was at work and a piece of one of my top front teeth broke off and it’s to the point where I can barely eat so my brother who has already conquered his fear of the dentist is gonna try and set me up with his dentist so I’ll be going in for a consultation on Friday or Monday I am sooo scared and freaking out

@Ladydi1724 well the current plan is to get all my extractions done first as that’s what they are most worried about right now and then start working on all my front teeth and getting my smile back in order where I want it to be

And that first step is the most difficult one. I just went through this last September. Years if not smiling and having trouble eating. Done now and I could not be happier. Each appointment got easier. And when you have a great caring dentist it really helps. Congratulations and keep us updated as your take this journey.

@mikey boy Good luck! My facial pain specialist prescribed me Valium (very low dose) for muscle spasms in my jaw. It zoned me out completely. Lol. I ended up asking him for something else since I have to be a little more alert during the day. It should work great for a dental appointment!
