I am 23 almost 24. My mental health hasn't been great since I was about 13. I have seriously neglected my teeth and I'm absolutely terrified of going to the dentist and finding out I have to lose all my teeth. My gums have receeded, I have cavities everywhere, a tooth with a crack down the middle...etc. I'm afraid if I lose all my teeth I'll be alone for the rest of my life.im trying to get in to the dentist but I keep going into panic attacks and backing out. The few times Ive been to a dentist, it's been horrible experiences. Not listening to me when I say my mouth isn't numb, one of my teeth breaking during cleaning, bad fillings falling out to reveal rotten chasms In the tooth, it goes on. Any advice? Edit:I forgot to mention that I don't make much money, so I cant afford these super expensive life changing dentists. I can afford what takes medi-cal...
