My neck is okay.... I got knocked on my butt so I was sore for a day or two but the only thing with pain out of the ordinary is my teeth. I'm think I'm just scared of what the dentist is going to say more than anything; Especially since I haven't seen one in forever, and I'm pretty sure I have a cavity or two....I have always had TERRIBLE enamel, like the rest of my family, so I was in for all sorts of stuff when I was young.

This, ontop of the new smackdown with the colt, leaves me shaking in my skin....I appreciate your support, I think I'm just being a pansy :/

Pssh.I didn't pick up the wrong lead
It's called a counter canter...
...A very advanced maneuver.

not a pansy. I fear the dentist , too. And mammograms, terrify me. But that's not for you . . . Yet.

Gotta take care of your body, just like you'd take care of your horse's body, wouldn't you? You want it to last, right? Go see the vet (dentist!)

I understand the fear of dentists as well. Ever since a bad experience when I was about 13, I've not been back.

I would be willing to bet that you cracked your teeth on that side. I've done the same thing to my front teeth (both top and bottom) though not to that extreme. Mine hurt if I drink or eat something too cold and I can see visible cracks running down them, but the dentist has seen them and says there isn't much to do unless I start having real problems with them.

Whenever you go to the dentist, I would make sure that it was a dentist that used the laughing gas and demand a nice, big hit of that as soon as you entered the office .

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

LOL, a little drive-by visit to the vet on your way to the dentist couldn't hurt .

I had my first mammogram last year, not as bad as I thought it would be, I guess that is one time when being a 42 long is really a blessing I would do a mammogram once a week if it would save me a visit to the dentist.

I am having pain now, I know I need to go, but I need someone else to book it.............sigh I know all the rational things, I know it will be fine in the end, but Gahh I HATE dentists

Appointment is on Monday. Right after my speech & debate tournament, so thank GOD I won't have to try speaking, especially since I don't know what's wrong! I'm sure just some cleaning and then fillings I'll obviously be fine, but if there really is something badly wrong about it then I don't want to be risking my voice when the competition season is in a thick.

Good for you for making the appt! Chances are they will take x rays to see what's happening, but that's no biggie.

Let us know how you make out.

I had a terrible fear of the dentist that started as a kid.

I met a fellow in a bar who told me he was a dentist. I picked up my drink and moved to the other end of the bar.

He figured it out. Told me to stop by his office and promised I'd not feel a thing.

Had I not by chance met him, I'd probably be toothless.

First thing, tell the dentist up front that you've have had a bad experience with a dentist previously, and that your nervous about your visit.

Second thing, gas...lots of no2.....

Third thing.....life's about learning to deal with our fear.

How did your appointment go? They have to give me drugs in advance and then have someone drive me to get me in the dentist's office for anything more than X-rays and a cleaning, so you're not alone.
