I’m petrified of the dentist but I need to have my teeth fixed, please help!
Q. I am petrified of the dentist, ever since 1971 when the dentist took out back tooth without any medication. I am now embarrassed with a front broken nearly black tooth, I have paid nearly £90.00 in cancellation fees, I need to get it done, I get to the doors and panic and turn away, i cry for ages before I get to the office. HELP HELP I Have three broken teeth, several gaps. HELP HELP,
A. I’m so sorry to hear that you have been left so scarred following an awful experience. Have you heard of something called sedation? It may be something that it worth researching. It is often used on patients such as yourself who are extremely nervous. It can be given either as an injection or drunk in a liquid form (taken an hour before the appointment in due to commence). This is something in addition to the local anaesthetic, you would be ‘awake’ but feel very drowsy. I would also advise finding a Dentist that you really trust and feel comfortable with. If sedation is something that you would be interested in please don’t hesitate to call the team on 0207 612 9810 and we can discuss the possiblities further.
