Good luck - dentists are my one real phobia. I have to go to a dentists who give me general anaesthetic even for a check up. I hope it goes well on Monday xx

Hey :)

I know it can be scary, you're not the only one with this. It's worth going though - an hour with someone you're uncomfortable with it is a short hit, in return for healthy, pain-free teeth!x

Much love <3

Well done on going. are they going to put you to sleep to have it taken out?

I went years and years without going the dentist, I was in so much pain that I went in the end. I think it helps if you have a dentist that makes us feel calm, I liked my old dentist but the building got demolished and he has now retired, the one I am with now I don't like her one bit so I am going to find another dentist.

The Dental Phobia website has a list of dentists on their website recommended by the forum members. It might be worth checking out.

You're brave for facing this fear for the better good of your health, well done. I was exactly in the same boat. I knew my teeth had to be fixed, i could sense there was something wrong. Turned out I had about 6 holes which had to be filled, some more urgent than others. I've learnt my lesson now. I floss everyday and brush twice without fail. Prevention is always better than cure.
