Hello, I Have Severely Crooked Teeth, But I’m Terrified And Don’t Know Where To Start. Is It Possible To Be Knocked Out For All Appointments?

Friday, November 15th, 2013
Q.

Hello, I am 29 year old female, with severely crooked teeth, heavy smoking has created severely tar stained teeth, recess gums, periodontal problems etc. I had a bad experience and am now terrified of going but my bottom four front teeth are feeling a little loose and my incisors have twisted back from my wisdom teeth beginning to show through, it is destroying my life, but I’m so terrified I don’t know where to start, and can’t really afford major surgeries which I know I need.
What kind of treatment plan would you give if I was a patient of yours and is it possible to be knocked out for all appointments? Thank you x

Hello, I Have A Big Fear Of The Dentists, But I Have To Go. What Are My Options?

Tuesday, August 27th, 2013
Q.

Hello, I have a really huge fear of the dentist as of bad experiences with them when I was younger and I have extremely bad anxiety and panic attacks. I have had a big filing fall out which has caused a big section of my tooth to come out and I can’t eat or sleep properly due to the pain, I have my first appointment with a dentist on Tuesday but I’m really terrified. Is it possible for you to tell me if you know whether I can be put asleep for treatment before treatment or something along those lines? Where would treatment like this be available to me? Please reply as this is urgent and really very scared. Thank you for your time.

I Am Scared Of Dentists And Haven’t Been In 24 Years, My Teeth Are Cracking Though, What Is Your Advice?

Friday, March 8th, 2013
Q.

Hi,

I’m embarrassed to have to say the following. I’m a 34yr old male who hasn’t attended a dental practise since a horrible nightmare dentist appointment when I was about 10years old. I’ve always brushed my teeth over the years and generally follow a pretty healthy diet although I do prob consume alittle more chocolate than I should at times.lol I’m not overweight or nothing though and am train at a gym regularly. A few years back while on hol my tooth cracked, I never did anything about it due to my fear. Since then I’ve had 3 teeth crack and all are at gum line. I have a 4th that is partially cracked but I’m sure this will also fall out. I’m so scared but I know enough is enough and I need to seek help. I have some loss of enamel on front teeth but no cracks or nothing. I have quite alot of tartar behind front lower teeth but not upper ones. I have some occasional pain but nothing to significant. I would like some advice in my best way fwd and if you think I’m going lose all my teeth.

I need treatment for teeth staining but have a fear of dentists. What can I do?

Monday, December 3rd, 2012
Q.

I spent years in the forces but despite this I have a fear of dentists and therefore have not been to a dentist for over 25 yrs. I feel my smile and teeth are holding me back in my career, they are all in tact but discoloured and stained and not a smile anyone would be proud off.
The trouble is I can not afford to correct this are there options as I do feel it is holding my career back?
A straight perfect smile is as much of importance as clean polished shoes I have tried everything to clean my teeth to no avail and I see treatment would cost thousands of which is beyond my reach.
I don’t know what to do or where too turn as i think it is now out of control.
