If you could give one reason why you have a fear of the dentist, what would it be?
Just seen this! Thanks for your kind words. Thankfully the impression was not long lasting but was promptly sent off to a lab for manufacture (badly)!! It tasted awful too....XXIf we weren't on the other ends of the world Simon , I would swear we went to the same ortho.. It was beyond awful and left a lasting impression for sure.. thank for good experiences years later and new chances.. Thank God !! So glad you found such a beautiful team!!
Me, me, me.When I first noticed white spots and my teeth were yellow I just told myself "Yeah, they don't look great but I guess it's alright". When my gums were bleeding when I did happen to brush I told myself they always did that and that most people's gums bleed. When I chipped a tooth I just told myself that it didn't hurt and I could live with it.
My fear is the fear of the unknown, every single time I went to a dentist as a child (which wasn’t often at all, I think it was 3yrs between visits) I would always need some sort of work done. So I always get so nervous at my 6 monthly appointment because I don’t want to hear that I need a filling. I’ve had more appointments in the last few years that I haven’t needed to get some extensive work done. My first appointment I had with my current dentist he found a quite deep cavity that needed a pulp cap to cover the nerve. So I guess I have that fear of finding out I have a massive filling or worse root canal.
