I want dental treatment but am scared of needles and drills? Is there help available?

Wednesday, June 23rd, 2010
Q.
Hi, I’m starting to become self aware of my teeth and the missing teeth i have. I know it’s my fault my teeth are in the way they are but i’m wanting to get something done about them. Now i’m afraid of needles and the drills used, is there any cosmetic dentist that could put me to sleep to get all my teeth out so i could either have implants or dentures fitted.,

Tuesday, June 8th, 2010
Q.
Hi im 56 and i suppose the last time i went to a dentist was 40 years ago. i attended Kings College Hospital, London at first as a guinea pig and got paid 5 shillings. I had a lot of work done there including a false front tooth which is on a metal plate, as i have not been to the dentist since then, incidently i was very frightened by all the experience there that i now have a phobia, please help me as that false tooth has now eaten away at the gum above it so my tooth is slowly been hidden as half of it looks like it is broken. I have so many broken teeth some are left but occasionaly give me pain, which i bare it as much as i can take it, this will last 3/4 days. Im registered Disabled as i have has a stroke and two TIA’S. Im so ashamed of my teeth that im afraid to smile bec ause as i do people look straight at my teeth. Please, please help me, as being disabled i dont go out a lot now, but i want to, im losing all my friends because of this and getting very depressed im on Fluoxtine to help me. I do hope you can help me. Thank you for listeneing to me.
