Hello, everyone. Well, I believe I've had at least one abscessed tooth (hopefully that's it) and other tooth problems for a while now and today I decided to look more into what could happen if one was to be left untreated. I immediately broke down and admitted (to myself) that I HAD to go to the dentist ASAP. Now, one obstacle I have to conquer is my mother. I'm so scared of what she's going to think, say, and ask. Money's pretty tight right now as she's currently paying her long list of dental bills. She's also always busy, plus I just really hate simply telling my parents something's wrong with me and the "spotlight" effect I feel when I do so. I just don't know how I should go about asking... Should I say something more minor is wrong and let her find out whatever else is wrong at the actual dentist or should I just put it out there? Any support is greatly appreciated.
