I haven't been to the dentist in years. I just noticed my one molar has a break in it. I also have impacted wisdom teeth that are partly in but still impacted in the back. The other day I was flossing, I guess a little too hard, in the back by my wisdom tooth and I'm in a lot of pain now. I made a dentist appointment for Friday. My teeth are bad but I am really hoping they are not too bad and I do not need to have any teeth extracted. I think this is my biggest fear. I had braces as a teenager and I have a small mouth and big teeth. I had 5 permanent teeth pulled at the time because I had no room for them. This is what started my awful anxiety about going to the dentist. I brush my teeth pretty hard and my gums do not usually bleed so I am hoping its not as bad as I think it is in my head. Apart from the broken molar and my impacted wisdom teeth, I do have visible cavities and tartar so I am just beyond nervous now. I need to go because I really am in pain but I already want to cancel.
