I have not been to the dentist in over seven years. I use to go to the dentist regularly before I had a really bad dentist that messed up a root canal and I have not been back since getting that fixed. I guess I am afraid of dentist because of that experience.
I know that I have to overcome my fears and go to the dentist because my teeth hurt almost every day now. I know I have alot wrong with them. It sometimes hurts just to brush. My questions is this. I am really worried about going to the dentist because my teeth are really bad. What will a dentist do for the first appointment?
I am thinking a dentist may do a cleaning but I afraid it will hurt since it hurts to brush a clean may hurt even more. If a dentist hurts me too much I am not sure how I am going to get over my fears then. Please give me some useful adivse
