A fear that a lot of people have.
After seven years without seeing dentist, I went at the beginning of 2016. It was more of an emergency, really. I can go a long way with pain and without pain killers but then one of my teeth broke off and I had to go.
Since then I have been through check ups, fillings and root canal treatments and one of my teeth even had to be pulled but I did it. 💪
Ask around for dentists who are specialised in treating patients with anxiety, take someone you trust with you, maybe just have a look at the office or if you dare, ask for an appointment for just a check up. At least some of these things helped me, maybe they'll help you too! ✨
And don't forget to treat yourself!
