    What fears?

    What happened?

    Not a dental app (mine was ultrasound) but I do get anxious about them. in the end, I had to take my migraine meds to be able to make the appointment and I was away with the fairies - almost dozed off at one point. I can't remember what the woman looked like!

    Back to the dentist though..

    I've had several full-on panic attacks in the dentists chair. Turns out, I was reacting to the adrenalin in the local anaesthetic...

    That something was wrong with my teeth, gums and jaw. But fingers crossed it doesn't worsen.

    So the way I understand from reading your posts, you have a lot of plaque and a couple of bad teeth that need removing?

    If this helps, I'd avoided the dentist for a few years (mainly for financial reasons) and then I hit the menopause and read how important gum health is for the heart, especially when women are lacking the protection of oestrogen. My gums were bleeding and in a bit of a state. It literally took one deep cleaning session to turn things around and now I have minimal plaque which gets sorted out with the hygienist. Takes her 5 minutes and she charges me 50. Her name is Rebecca but I prefer to call her Dick (as in Turpin).

    Hubs has a fear of the dentist. He won't admit, but he never goes... He recently lost one of his front teeth to a Jelly Tot. Yes, a poncy Jelly Tot. Now he looks like one of The Wurzels.

    Really appreciate it Nora, you good lady are a legend . Indeed the human body is essentially a biological machine where each part one way or another relies on other parts.
