How can I get over my dental phobia in order to get my broken teeth repaired?

Friday, December 10th, 2010
Q.

Hi, Im a 42 year old male and was never taken to the dentist as a child so no trust was ever built up with a dentist, i have only been to the dentist since then when i have had tooth ache and something needs to be removed. The problem now is that i only have six front upper teeth and a few broken off at the gum line at the back. I can no longer smile and very scarred to smile if i go out, this has now affected relationships and eating in public is such an embarrassment i just don’t know what to do. I work but have no savings to pay for such treatment and cant move on in life.
im terrified of dentists and so wish i had gone when i was a child. Help

How can I overcome my fear of the dentist and seek treatment for my broken/rotten teeth?

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010
Q.

Hi i have the biggest fear of seeing a dentist. I have had a fear since childhood and the fear has now caused me to have rotten, broken and loss of teeth, I am only 31 and suffer a lot of pain at times but am too embarrassed to see a dentist. I avoid smiling as my teeth don’t do any justice to me. I have no confidence and at times I’m in so much pain i can’t focus on other things due to lack of sleep. Please help!!!

How can I find a NHS dentist that will help me with my dental phobia?

Thursday, November 18th, 2010
Q.
I am 36 and not been to the dentist since i was 13 and had a bad experience over the last 16 years i have really needed to go but been in a controlling relationship and wasnt able to go even if i wanted to luckily he was sent to prison for 6 years just over a year ago now. Since then although i have a really bad phobia i have had to try and force myself to take my 2 kids to a dentist as my phobia and inability to go has caused them needing dental work.Although i have actually managed to walk through the door it is a very uncomfortable feeling and i can not be in the room when they have work done i am just glad my 2 teenagers are braver than me its them seeing if im ok on the way home instead of me being there for them . I need to try and get myself to a dentist but all the ones i come across have just made it even harder for me to see someone.They dont know my history so assume it is just a case of cant be bothered .I know i need all my teeth out as the ones that are left are stumps or rotten and after being basicaly locked in a house fo the last 10 years i also have problems with agrephobia where i find it difficult to actually walk out the house it doesnt make things any easier when i have visable rotten and missing teeth when i talk.I have tried emailing a few places in my local area but to be refered to anywhere that treats phobias and does this sort of work under sedation i am told i will need to be refered by a dentist..if i could find a dentist i was happy with and who understood my fears then i wouldnt be in this situation. I dont know if you work with nhs patients but if you do i would really appreciate some useful advice before i end up a total recluse.

My husband has tried dentures but has a fear of gagging. Is there any way he can get implants for missing teeth?

Monday, October 11th, 2010
Q.
My partner has been without teeth at all for the past 10 years, he has tried using dentures but has a phobia of gagging and cannot stand the stress of the appointments. He has social anxiety disorder and agrophobia brought on by his low self esteem due to having no teeth. He is 36 years old would he be eligible for treatment on the NHS. I have checked the schooling websites and they do not offer implants. He feels that implants would be the only way to get teeth and be able to get his life back on track. Thanks.,
