I had my appointment today at 2.30pm, I went straight from work, absolutely bricking it like the great big Wussy wuss that I am. I had the broken tooth filled, so that feels normal again, I was numbed before he started filling the tooth to give the anaesthetic a chance to work. The small tooth came out with no trouble, but the back one was harder. I felt him pull on it but it was eventually over. Bleeding a bit and no doubt will be a bit sore but I'm glad it's done

Congrats and well done :) and you're no wussy wus, on the contrary, you have been really brave. Most people can just ignore their phobia and avoid whatever triggers it while you managed to face it. Give yourself a pat on the back.

Thank you, even though the dentist had a hard time getting the back tooth out, I'm glad it's gone as apparently it was infected. At least it won't give me any more trouble
