After 10+ years of avoiding the dentist and lots of shame/embarrassment about an front cavity/chip and broken wisdom teeth, I found this forum... Because of your words I faced my fears and made an appointment ( was nauseous after the phone call). I told several people about my appointment to keep me from backing out and after two weeks of worrying I went today! They did my cleaning, which I'm sure was a lot of years of work, X-rays, and made me a treatment plan all in less than an hour. All this worrying for what in the end was a small moment of my life that went much better than expected. I have five cavities and need my wisdom teeth removed but the relief of facing the unknown and knowing what I needed to do to get back on track was amazing. No more fear, it's like I left it there today. Of course, I explained to them my fear and was very honest about my worries and they were very kind and caring and patient. In six appointments (they spread it out to make it easier on me) my teeth will be fixed and pain-free and now I'm actually excited to get this started. All of this because of this forum letting me know I wasn't alone. I wanted to post this today to let anyone who is in the same situation know IT WILL BE OK and whatever worries you have are probably worse than what you will actually need. Thank you all again, and if anyone needs support/someone to cheer them on, I am here to pay it forward. Thanks and good luck to anyone reading this!
