A. Im afraid there is no easy solution other than to visit the dentist. Explain to the dentist that you are very nervous. All practices cater for anxious patients. Some dentists now offer sedation for nervous patients having treatment. Dont be ashamed as the denist will totally understand and will have seen worse cases.
