My fear of the Dentist

I thought that my fear of the dentist was unusual, but after speaking with quite a few people I realised it's not so uncommon. I recently had a check up - which I have to admit was the first time in a while. It's something I am extremely ashamed of, but I am glad that I am now getting out of that bad habit. 

My trip to the dentist was relatively simple. I went in worrying but I couldn't tell you where this anxiety was coming from as it was just a general check up. However, I think I put it off for so long, I was more worried about being judged. 


My dentist was very understanding and he tried to relax me as much as possible. I had my checkup and also had X-rays done which was great because I could finally get a verdict on how healthy my teeth and gums are. Fortunately I only need two fillings. 


I say only two but I've never had a filling on my adult teeth before which is amazing really. 

Both my fillings are at the back of my mouth. They had slight decay which is why I need to get them done. Natural wear from someone with a HUGE sweet tooth.  The Dentist did advise that they weren't urgent and I could leave them for a while, but I wanted to get them done ASAP. 

Now I have this pressure of getting my fillings which means needles and a drill. The thought of both those things slightly stress me out. I have been reading and watching other peoples stories but I guess I will never no until I have them done. 


My fillings are being done in two separate sittings. The worst tooth is being done tomorrow which is on my left side.
