I always have had a terrible fear of dentists maybe because I had a few bad experiences which never helped but then I took advise and the dentist I now see I was totally honest about just how nervous and what all my problems were anxiety etc

I have not long since had to have a dental bridge , a lot of work was involved but with the help of my dentist I managed to get it done

There is nothing worse than toothache , usually when you have holes or broken teeth the pain will not go away without seeing a dentist , so yes you need to phone up , tell them when you phone how nervous you are and could they bear this in mind , you may find that they will be so much better than last time you went as sometimes it is the fear , what are heads have created that is so much worse than going & having the treatment

If you manage to go this time & you get some good treatment it will help build your confidence again & we have to start somewhere to do that

I no what you mean though about just as we feel things are getting better then something goes wrong and knocks us back but like someone said to me this is life & I think this is where we can struggle with anxiety when we get these knocks but the more we can face them & come through the other side it will make us stronger even though I know it is not as easy as said than done

Hope you make that appointment :-) x


Thanks you Tigger, so much it's that thing Anxiety that causes a great deal of well ectra worry & turmoul we can do without know a few years back I had no issues.

Hi Tigger, well I went to the dentist to be told quit bad nerve gum infection ,grear so got antibiotics took those my anxiety going g through the roof what of the infection spread so much, first day been pain free but just started with it again or is it anxiety I forgot nerve pain can be so bad arrrrrrrgh . Hope you are well big hugs binkynoo


Oh sounds painful , no wonder if you have an infection like that you have been in so much pain :-o

Don't worry because no matter where the infection is now you have antibiotics it will clear it up & stop it spreading ...I have had infections before with my teeth and yes you just think it is getting better then you may have a few hours of pain again but it takes the full course of meds to clear it up so that is normal .......Hope you seeon feel better :-) x
