Well I survived part one of my first dental treatment plan after a 15yrs absence. Today was a deep filling on a 2nd upper right molar and it went as well as I could have hoped. Very nervous to start but once numb it was much better than my fobia would have me believe. Not pleasent but not painful. Currently feeling bruised and slightly swollen. Next step is rct on a lateral incisor that appears to have had a chronic infection for some time. Hopefully it can be saved. Part one of deep clean is on Thurs am. Then the rct, 3 more fillings and removal of retained roots of a decayed upper left wisdom tooth. Just reading the posts on here and taking tips of how to overcome the phobia has been of great help. This one small step was a giant leap for me.
