I’m 16 years old and my parents have never really been able to afford dental care. i brush my teeth twice a day, but don’t floss regularly. I’ve noticed that i have a few cavities on my back mollars. only one of them is larger and more noticeable, the others are only small dark spots on the side or top of the mollars. none of them have hurt except for today the large one has begun to give me a dull pain. (i can’t tell if it’s really hurting or if it’s in my head because i’ve been getting anxiety about it) I’m very nervous about going to the dentist because i feel embarrassed that i’ve never been, and that i have more than one cavity. also a lot of my anxiety stems from the fear of the unknown, i would love if someone could just let me know what will happen there, and if anyone has tips for dealing with the embarrassment and fear. thanks!
