I’m Too Scared To Visit My Dentist After Years Of Smoking, And Now My Teeth Are Discoloured. Will They Take My Teeth Out?

Q.
Hello Dr Hughes, I hope you can help me as I fear I have a dead front tooth as it is slightly discoloured and feels numb. Also my teeth are going see-through at the bottom. I am too scared to go to a dentist because I fear they will tell me I will lose all my teeth. Please can you tell me what to expect. I am 26 years old and I damaged my teeth with fizzy drinks and cigarettes but the dead tooth is from trauma. I have never had any dental complaints before but again I have not been to the dentist in over ten years.

Hello, thank you for seeking my advice, It’s a first step. I’d advise that you visit a dentist who is experienced in dealing with patients who are nervous as soon as you can in case your problem is a serious one. This problem is unlikely to go away and will only get worse if you don’t seek advice, the dentist will only tell you what needs to be done, it’s up yo you from there on. If you go now, it may not be as bad as you think and you can save your smile.  Kind regards, Dr Mark Hughes.
