I am just wondering how effective sedation is, particularly for the extraction of teeth?

Q.
am just wondering how effective sedation is? i am very scared of the dentist but after having terrible toothache for a week i had no choice but to go he told me the tooth needed taking out and i calmed myself enough for him to inject the gum and loosen the tooth then after 5 attempts of removing the tooth told me he could not do it i was sent home in agony and shock now i know i cant try this again without sedation..or could i even be put to sleep?,

I am unsure if my dentist said I would have a temporary denture until I get crowns due to my fear of the dentist. What should I do?

Tuesday, September 21st, 2010
Q.
hi, i went to my dentist after years of being scared of them. i have 3 front crowns which have been lose for years and i have been gluing them back in myself due to my phobia of dentists, anyway i plucked up the courage to go to one and they were really nice but because of my nerves i dont remember what he said he was going to do. he said that one of my crowns had no bone to put cement it back on but he tried his best to, it has came lose after a day. the others have stayed in. he did impressions and said i might have to go without a front tooth for a while, while he sorted out more crowns but then he said that he could do a partial denture which would be ready in a couple of weeks time. does he mean i will have a denture untill some crowns are sorted or will it be instead of crowns and would it be better anyway. i also chose the colour of the crowns. i just dont understand if it is a tempory denture while sorting crowns out or will it be a permanent one, have to go back next week and still really nervous.,

I don’t want dental phobia to ruin my smile. Can you recommend a dentist?

Thursday, September 16th, 2010
Q.
I have always had a phobia about dentists but have managed it for the past 20 years however after a recent bout of depression am now absolutley terrified.I have recently plucked up the courage to go the the hygienist as I know how important it is and have not been as good at looking after my gums (have had problems with them for years) to get back on track, I have lots of crowns and really try hard to look after them as best I can. I was left with the impression I will eventually loose all my teeth to gum disease which I know i have to come to terms. However I am willing to do what it takes to keep them for as long as I can. I would really like to find a dentist I can trust bit dont know where to start looking. I live in Stamford Lincolnshire, but would be willing to travel to the right dentist. Do you know where I could begin to start looking for one? I dont know many people in the area so asking around is not really an option. I would be very grateful if you could help, also am thinking of getting some private insurance but dont know where to start!! Sorry this is long winded would be grateful for any advice. Thank you,

What would the dentist do about my 2 rotten teeth?

Thursday, September 2nd, 2010
Q.
Hi, I have a fear of dentists and have not been to a dentist for nearly 20 years. I need to have a few fillings put in but the main problem is that i have two teeth at the back of my mouth that have rotten completely down to the gum? I think I have finally built the courage to go visit a dentist, but am still worried to what they would do to my two rotten teeth? Could you share some light regards.

I am terrified of the dentist, but I need work done on my bottom row. Do you have any tips or advice?

Wednesday, August 11th, 2010
Q.
I am TERRIFIED of the dentist, have terrible crooked bottom teeth and a tooth missing from the top row (I was once told by a dentist that a blow to the face as a child stopped the new tooth coming through). As a child I was not taken to the dentist, i have had work done under intravenous sedation but would love a new tooth and my bottom row straightened. Have you any tips or advice for me ? Many Thanks,
