Dentist... - May 14th 2010, 01:29 PM

Alright... Well it looks like I'm telling my mom tonight about the pain in my jaw where the wisdome teeth are supose to come out of...

Let's just say one has a GIANT fear of the dentist...? Like getting them removed, okay... Not while I am awake. I am terrified of waking up half way through, if they put me to sleep. Scared of the anesthitics wearing off halfway through... Scared oof needles IN my mouth... Scared of the blood FROM my mouth. Overall I am terrified of the dentist and go visit as little as possible because of this... What is going to happen? I can't even go there on my own will, I breakdown, cry, throw a fit, etc...

I'm also petrified of the dentist. Whenever I have to go I'll end up in tears for one thing or another. But this procedure, they do it everyday. And the technology they use to perform it are second to none. So nothing would go wrong during it. You'll be in safe hands, and they know exactly what they're doing.

Being afraid of the dentist is common. You've just got to bite the bullet and get on with it. Make sure you go with someone you feel comfortable with, bring a teddy to hold, or something that makes you feel better. It'll be over before you know it!

Take care and good luck.

I had my wisdom teeth out when i was 15! i was the youngest in my family to have them out and like you i was scared and nervous, they like it when you pull your hair back so make sure you do that, now the chances of the sedatio meds wearing off in the middle of the procedure are extremly slim, talk to the dentist who will be doing the wisdom teeth removal about how your anxious about the medication wearing off in the middle of the procudure,like Tayla Jay said bring a cuddle buddy like a stuffed teddy bear or a favorite blanket, or stuff animal. everything will be okay its a scary thing i know, with the technology we have now in the medical field chnces of them not knowing when something was going on its pretty much impossible(zlitch) they will monitor your heart rate and put something on your finger and a cord will run to a machine from the thingy on your finger to a machine called an oximeter(i think) hey will monitor you very closely, make sure when you get there that you go over ALL of your worries and concerns with the dentist,, update us on how it goes if you dont mind, i hope and pray that you feel better, i pray for a fast procudure with no complications and a speedy recovery, Good Luck and God Bless(if you dont mind me saying that)

I was born with a genetic disorder called neurofibromatosis, it causes tumors to grow in my body on nerves,my spine,and under my skin. I have a tumor in the thalamus region of my brain. I also have heartburn,hypothyroidism and secondary adrenal insufficiency these are under control with medication.
I also have hip dysplasia and scoliosis.

I know it can be scary going to the dentist but just try and remember that they are very experienced and they know what they are doing. I also keep the thought that 'if everyone else can get through this then so can i!' in my head. Try and stay calm, and tell the dentist that you are nervous! That way they'll make sure they don't wave the needle in your face or say anything that might freak you out.

It is very common to be afraid of the dentist/needles/blood in general so don't feel bad about it. The dentist will deal with nervous people on a daily basis. You can get through it - and it's usually not as bad as you think it's going to be!

..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..
