So today i had the upper deep cleaning done and honestly it was not that bad at all the only part that hurt was when she was gauging the pockets below the gum which kinda hurt but she was very gentle with me today and took very good care of me so no worries there next will be the deep cleaning below the gum which i am very nervous about but haven’t scheduled for it yet because of money constraints

So i must admit i have been slacking a little bit when it comes to my journey i haven’t been back to the dentist since July, because I’ve been trying to pay off some of the money I owe on my care credit account and I am a little bit worried because some tartar has started to build up again and it’s not a lot but we all know that a little tartar is too much so I’m going to try and make an appointment soon to get my deep cleaning finished because they still need to do below the gumline cleaning and then after that is done it will be time to move on to the next part, which I believe will be my root canals.

So I’m sitting outside in my backyard just thinking about some different things and I called the dentist the other day to set up the second half of my deep cleanings so that I can get that part finished and continue on with my journey and as I made those appointments, I recognized, how anxious and kind a terrified I was making the appointment now. I don’t know if any of you guys have ever fully gotten over your phobia or like aren’t scared of the dentist anymore at after you’ve gotten to where you want to be with your oral hygiene but I don’t know if I’ll ever not be afraid of going to the dentist like right now I just can’t see myself not being afraid of going because it’s like I always feel like it’s an instinct that I have and I’m sure a lot of you still have it as well but for me it feels like it’s always intense and the closer I get to the appointments next year the worse it will get I don’t know it’s just something that’s always been on my mind and I would be happy to hear your thoughts .
