I Am Scared Of The Dentist And I Don’t Want People Judging Me. Is It Possible To Get Knocked Out Throughout The Treatment?

Q.
Hi Andrew. I have really bad toothache, but I am scared of dentist from when I was little through a bad experience. I have been to ashamed to go as I have several chipped teeth and now they look really bad. I don’t want people judging me. I have left it them to go rotten but I must have some of the the roots left in my gums. I am very wary of a male dentist going near me as well, I just want nice teeth. If I could be knocked out and wake up with nice teeth that would be my ideal dream. Is this possible? Any advice would help me greatly. Thank you.

Hello and thank you for getting in touch. Sedation might work for the difficult procedures but ask around to find a dentist who is recommended by friends or family first so you can build up trust. Their are also plenty of female dentists currently practising if this helps. You could use the internet to identify practices in your area. I hope this helps you. If you need further clarity and understanding on the subject of dental phobia you could use this website, which has a page dedicated to this topic. Best wishes, Dr Andrew Moore.
