Hi, i have had a phobia of dentists for years and have not been. After suffering from bad toothache i had to go to the dentist, i was so embarrasssed at the state of my teeth and gums! My gums are swollen and very red and i have holes in all my front teeth, so much hard plaque too. The dentist advised she would do the deep clean and fillings as long as there is not too much blood, i an booked for next week but i am having sleepless nights worried about the sedation, will i have a panic attack during it, will i have a reaction to it, will i wake up and be in so much pain, will my teeth crack as shes is cleaning, im very scared about the whole thing but i need it done as the dentist said they will eventually fall out if i do nothing.

Please have a read at the sedation information on this site, it should address most of your concerns.
