Dental phobia

Hello Everyone.

I have had anxiety on and off for many years. Yesterday while I was eating lunch I cracked a small bit off my molar tooth.

My dental appointment isn't until next Wednesday and I'm petrified! I can't see another dentist as I have built up trust in my regular dentist.

I am not sleeping or eating and I just don't know how to get through the next few days.

Help please.... thank you x

  • Don't worry you will be fine Your dentist will be understanding and used to nervous patients If your tooth is just chipped it's not going to be major work to be done

    What is it you fear exactly Going to the dentist isn't like it used to be I do understand but honestly it will be ok Wednesday will soon come round and be over
