I am not afraid of a visit to the dentist's. But the thing that concerns me the most is that once you go to the dentists for a check up or something you are trapped in a vicious circle having to pay regular visits, because he is always going to find some problem or the other with your teeth.I am not afraid of any tooth extraction. Anyways be cool when you visit the dentist and try to think of beautiful things because after all i don't think anybody is going to find a visit to he dentist a very cheerful affair.Also interact more with the doc.

i am not afraid to visit my dentist because my dentist is my aunt. the thing there is that you should put your trust in your dentist and just think of it this way.. when it's all over you will like the results. that's how i do it even if at times i fear. i just try my hardest not to think about it.

ugh, i hate the dentist. and i put off going there until i cant take the pain anymore..which is usually quite a while, i can take a lot of pain lol! whenever i do have to go in, they usually give me a pill and then let me sit in the lobby for about 25 minutes. cant remember what the name of the pill is though. low level muscle relaxer or something like that. i need to go in to have a molar pulled, but i dont want to lol! it will be a few more months before i give in though!
