You know as I’m sitting outside by my pool listening to music and trying to relax I actually am kind of excited for my next dentist appointment it’s really rare to say that but I feel really comfortable going

You see this is where my anxiety and my overthinking comes in to play because it’s not that I am scared of the next appointment but I am very very nervous and I can’t seem to bring my nerves down to a point where I feel OK I guess it’s just that I’ve never had that many teeth pulled at once so I’m really anxious about it

Congratulations on having come this far, @mikey boy :you-rock:


Maybe you could split it up into 2 appointments and deal with the painful left side first? Might be worth discussing with your dentist what they would recommend, as each situation is unique :).

Thanks I really appreciate that I think I’m going to get the other six done in a row though because someone mentioned something that made sense to me the other day because after I’m done with this appointment I’m probably going to move on to the deep cleanings what time excited to get those done so I’m just going to dive in headfirst into the deep end and get it done

As long as your dentist agrees that it's a reasonable plan of action, and you've discussed it with them, that sounds fine 👍. Never hurts though to ask your dentist what they would do if it was their own mouth, and why (because they have actually seen you and know exactly what is going on in your particular situation)!

That’s a good point I might call them on Monday and just see what they think

You are going to do great! I do understand the nervousness but believe me when I say that part is 100 times worse than the procedure! Let us know how things go. I will be thinking of you at 10:00.

Hi Mikey. Just read your story, and it is such a great accomplishment! I can't imagine how good the relief will feel when you finally reach the finish line! I just started my own process of dealing with my fear after almost 20 years of avoiding the dentist.

Looking forward to hearing how the rest of the story goes, but you should feel so proud of yourself for how far you've come already!

Sending positive vibes for your next appt!
