I'm sorry no one has answered this, and I'm sorry you have this condition. When I had to find a new dentist I made a list of questions and then a list of dentists to call after I checked out their reviews. It took 10 calls before I found a place that could get me in without waiting months and they seemed to i understand that my situation needed a special touch. If you explain what you are looking for and they don't seem to be understanding, then move on to the next office on your list.

Thank you, for responding.. I am looking for a dentist that would put me to sleep and one that knows what Trigeminal Neuralgia is.. I know I need one filling and one tooth replace, and my bottom teeth cleaned, I have dentures on the top.. I would also like knew dentures.. The though of work being done, while I am awake is what is keeping me from going.. Before this condition I went every 6 months.. I believe that the extractions on my top teeth are what caused my Trgeminal Neuralgia . {known as the suicide disease}

I don’t have additional advice but just wanted to add my sympathy. I have atypical facial pain, which while painful, is not nearly as bad as trigeminal neuralgia. I ate going to the dentist even for a cleaning, as I know it will cause it to flare up for days or weeks afterwards.

I would definitely call around and tell them up front you have trigeminal neuralgia and need sedation for treatment. Hopefully you can find someone that will help. My current dentist office and oral surgeon are great with my AFP, and make little changes in how they do things to accommodate me.

My AFP started after multiple extractions and two apicoectomies.
