I went for a dental consult. Just a consult to see how bad my teeth are. I haven't been to a dentist in like 10 years. Anyways, this dentist is new to town but came from a different office. (She bought the office here). So I got x-rays done, and answered the medical history questions. Then the dentist comes in. She asks if she can take a look. All good. She scraped some tartar or plaque off my teeth but never stayed in long AND told me if it was too much to raise my hand. I was ok. Except when she said i can take a swallow before she took another look. My mouth was so dry. Is that due to the anxiousness or because I had my mouth open? Anyways, I'm super happy that this dentist is so nice and patient. It gives me a little hope that my extractions will be easy peasy. Still scared though. I hope everyone who has a fear of dentists can find one that is so understanding, compassionate and caring.
