Nervous as can be!

Those who know me, know that I suffer from Depression and Anxiety. They also know that I am not a fan of needles, blood, pain, or doctors. And well.. the dentist appointment I made in August for the tooth with a mysterious hole in it, is tomorrow morning, and I'm very nervous. I'm trying so hard to not think about it, and have been all week, but it's not working. And because of it, I've had stomach aches most of this week, and even thought of cancelling the appointment and just asking for a referral to get the whole tooth pulled, because that to me is less worrisome and less painful. Ugh. Hopefully this is a fast and as painless as possible, visit tomorrow.

Awww, you can do this! I am not a fan of the dentist but to me getting a filling is less pain than ripping it out and leaving a raw hole that could get dry socket and hurt for weeks. Do like I do and just close your eyes when they deaden your mouth, then I keep them closed while drilling and in no time its over.Teeth are a one time deal, take care of them, and getting them cleaned is one way to prevent those holes.

I've had teeth pulled and never had a problem with dry sockets or pain, and the hole always closes. I don't do the pain or vibration of the drill well. and closing eyes or listening to music doesn't help. so pulling is better for me. I know they are, as my mom has been without teeth since her late 20s. but not from not cleaning them or anything.
