I get a panic attack every time my teeth hurt. I have had a lot of cavities over the years and three root canals. I clench my teeth a lot (ruined mouth guards). How can I mentally justify in my mind that it is just from clenching and not the worst case senecio. My dentist and endontist probably think I’m nuts. But in my mind if it aches, sharp pain, dull pain then I am afraid it will be the middle of the night with full blown panic attack. Help!!

Hi Panicteeth33,

this sounds awful.. also a full blown panic attack doesn’t sound like something you could just easily get rid of by adjusting your thoughts - I bet you tried already. Have you been having panic attacks from other things as well? And have you tried anything against clenching?

All the best wishes
