Do You Have Any Advice for Dental Phobic Patients?

Friday, September 12th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Hughes. Could you please advise me on getting my teeth treated? I’m so scared of dentists because of a bad experience I had in the past, but now I really need dental work done. I can’t even look at people right in their face when I speak to them. And I also need assurance that the work I need can be done without me having to be put to sleep, because that’s the main fear I have. Thank you, I have totally let myself down by letting it go this long without dental treatment. I don’t have one full tooth in my mouth. I would just really appreciate some help and friendly advice. Thank you very much.

Due To A Bad Experience I Am Now Terrified Of The Dentist. I Don’t Know What To Do. Please Help?

Wednesday, August 27th, 2014
Q.

Hi Marcus. My teeth are badly decayed that it’s got to the point that I cover my mouth when speaking and I am terrified of the dentist due to a bad experience. Even my children are embarrassed by my teeth. They started decaying when things went wrong in my life. My teeth are making me depressed I won’t even have a photo taken. I won’t even take or pick my little girl up from school in case someone speaks to me that I don’t know what to do please help.

I Am Terrified Of Dentists And I Have Tooth Decay And A Large Gap Between My Front Teeth. Could I Be Sedated Before Treatment Commences?

Friday, August 22nd, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Patel. I am a mental health patient as I have schizo-affective disorder which is a mood disorder which means depression with a few traits of schizophrenia. I am terrified of dentists and I haven’t been to the dentist for quite a while. I have a big gap between my two front teeth and problems with decay. It really bothers me a lot but I am 40 now. Is it possible for me to be put to sleep in a hospital dentistry department and how are they going to fix the gap in my teeth? Thank you.

I Haven’t Been To A Dentist For Two Years As I Have Dental Phobia. How Much Would It Cost To Have My Fillings Replaced?

Monday, August 11th, 2014
Q.

Hi Andrew. I’ve not been to the dentist for about 2 years I’ve got dental phobia and the whole experience just scares me. I’ve got very weak teeth and 2 of my bottom back teeth have broken I also have a lot of fillings. I really want them sorting out as I realise how important my teeth are. What sort of piece would I be looking at to have my fillings replaced probably about 6 of them and also the bottom 2 teeth that have broken? I’m with an NHS dentist at the moment? Thanks.

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

Wednesday, July 30th, 2014
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.

I Have Left My Teeth Get In A Bad State. I Have A Bad Smell Coming For My Teeth But I’m Too Embarrassed To Go. What Should I Do?

Thursday, July 17th, 2014
Q.

Hello Mark. Unfortunately I have left my two teeth (second to last upper,and second to last lower) to rot as I have a fear of dentist but now they have started to smell badly, I need to get them both pulled out but I am too embarrassed to go to a dentist. Do you know if there is anyone who specialises in rotten teeth? I have a filling in my lower tooth but it is still in place. The situation is driving me mad. I’m not in pain but the smell is causing me not to speak to anyone as I’m in fear that other people may smell it. Please advise me on what to do.

I’m Too Scared To Brush My Teeth In Case I Make Things Worse! Please Give Me Some Direction?

Wednesday, July 9th, 2014
Q.

Hello. I am a 20 year old student who hasn’t taken care of my teeth. I have now realised that if I don’t do something soon there will be nothing left. I haven’t seen a dentist in over 5 years and rarely brush due to the fear that I will now make things in my mouth even worse. I don’t know what it is but I can’t see a dentist. It’s got to the point where I have been in enough pain over the last few weeks that I have needed to take ibuprofen and sometimes paracetamol at the same time to get rid of the pain. I believe I have at least 14 bad teeth and at least 6 of them are really bad. I want to find help but I don’t know what to do. Please could you give me some direction on what to do next. Thanks.

After Cracking A Tooth I Didn’t See The Dentist For A Long Time. Now The Root Canal Treatment Hurts. Is This Normal?

Monday, June 30th, 2014
Q.

Hi Mark. I am looking for a bit of expert advice as I am a bit weary of the dentist I have been using. I cracked my tooth and left it for a long time. When the pain was too much I went to the dentist and he said I needed to root canal. I have been going to him for the past 3 weeks and he has inserted a rod in one of the canals but not the others yet. I am in constant pain. I am still on my antibiotics but I keep telling him how sore it is and it is like he keeps dismissing me. Is it normal to be in so much pain? Thank you in advance for your reply.

I Have Been Told That I Need A Specialist For My Curved Roots. Could My Regular Dentist Do This Instead?

Thursday, June 12th, 2014
Q.

Hello Dr Moore. I’ve been told that I need nerve root canal treatment as my roots are curved. I would need to see a specialist to correct this. Do you know if this is the correct way of going about something like this? I have no problems with my current dentist, he is very good and I wondered if he could do it instead. Do you know if this is possible? I hope you can help me with this, I’m extremely nervous. Thank you for your reply in advance.

I Have A Massive Phobia Of Dentists And Have Not Been For Ten Years. What Is The Cheapest And Least Painful Option For A Whole Mouth Of Work?

Thursday, June 5th, 2014
Q.

Hi Dr Moore. First of all, let me tell you I have a massive phobia of dentists. I have not had any work done to my teeth in over 10 years, and they are chipped, discoloured, rotten and in some parts missing. I don’t think there’s One tooth in my mouth that would not need treatment. I would love to transform my teeth into a smile but I worry about cost & pain/fears. What is the cheapest & least painful option for a whole mouthful of work? Thank you.
