Hi! I just recently started going to the dentist again, after putting if off for about 10 years. The cleaning wasn't bad at all. I have two teeth that I lost, and basically all that's left are the roots. I obviously need to get those pulled. I have a tooth on the top right side that needs a root canal. I was supposed to have it done this morning but of course I rescheduled if. I'm SO scared! I've been having constant panic attacks thinking about going. I've never taken anti anxiety meds, so that's kind of out of the question. The tooth itself is a little tender, but knock on wood, doesn't hurt too bad. I noticed two days ago that right below my cheek bone is tender also. Could this be from the tooth? The dentist said I'll be fine to way until Monday to be seen but of course I'm freaking out!
