I have a severe anxiety disorder. Going to the dentist is extremely difficult even for a regular exam. Recently I have managed to get through a full mouth root scaling and planing (one quadrant per visit) and 5 fillings (three visitS) but now I’m supposed to have a porcelain crown removed due to decay along the gumline and I’m scared to death to go back for this. The dentist said it could take up to 20 minutes just to drill the old crown off ... then there’s the drilling of the decay, making a new (Cerec) crown etc. Has anyone been through this or performed this who can offer some calming advice?? Please help!!
