Hey guys today is sunday and I am going to the dentist on wedesnday afternoon. I am dreading it with all my heart!
I am a teenager. When I was a baby, I had spinal meningitas (sorry for the spelling) and I was given a medicine that had weakened my teeth but was necessary to save my life. Now almost every single time I visit the dentist every 6 months, I have several cavities. I brush my teeth twice a day with sensodyne for 3 minutes. I floss between every tooth. I rinse with flouride mouthwash for 3 minutes. And I have a normal diet. But I still manage to get cavities!
I absolutely HATE the dentist and whenever I hear the dentist say I have a cavity, I start to breath heavy and even tear up. It's not the novacain I fear. I just hate the drilling part. My dentist is the sweetest thing ever, VERY nice and reasuuring but still I HATE IT! So any tips on how to get over my fear? Or at least cope with it?
Also, does anyone know of any toothpastes or rinses I can use to help prevent cavities? That is extra protective? THANKS!
