I just had to write and tell you my experience. I have been afraid of the dentist my entire life. It started when I was a child and my dentist looked just like the vampire I saw on a movie. After that, I was never the same going for a teeth cleaning.
When I got older, we moved to another state. Now I had a non-vampirey looking dentist, but he was absolutely horrible and every appointment hurt like mad.
When I went away to college, I got to switch to a different dentist. He was OK, but by then I was so afraid of the dentist I had psyched myself out. All of my appointments were torture both for me and my new dentist.
Finally a friend recommended sedation dentistry. I found a dentist who did it and it has changed my life. He gave me a pill to take before my appointment. It made me feel VERY relaxed. I’ll be honest with you, I don’t even remember the appointment. I just remember I felt great. My appointment is done. My procedure is done. I could do this every single time.
