As a Nervous Patient, How Can I Get My Front Tooth Repaired?

Q.
Hi! I have a huge fear of the dentist due to having several heavy handed dentists when I was a lot younger who didn’t address my fear at al, which has caused me not to visit a dentist for around 4 years. I am 22, and have very weak enamel on my teeth. I do try to maintain a healthy diet, however I have suffered from re-flux in the past which I believe has caused an increase in the decay in my teeth. My front tooth weakened and chipped 4 years ago and I was told I may need root canal treatment. However at first I was given a filling and I was too scared to go back after this, and since then my back teeth are suffering. My teeth would often break off slowly which has resulted in my losing 2 lower teeth and one upper on the right hand side and one lower one upper on left. This is very frightening for me and I’ve found it so hard to visit a dentist due to my fear. I desperately want my front tooth repaired as it is becoming thinner all the time. I also am having difficulty eating due to my back teeth. Is there anything that will resolve these underlying issues? I’m terrified of a dentist saying there’s nothing they can do and I eventually lose all my teeth. Thank you.

Hello, thank you for your question.There are dentists who can treat very nervous patients as they have had special training. Look for a dentist you trust who offers a service to anxious patients.  Best wishes, Mark.
