I have dental phobia and have most of my life thanks to having an awful dentist when I was a kid.
Last summer I had to have major work done as I only go when my teeth bother me, so the dentist sent me to a specialist who does sleep dentistry. I was scared to be put out completely, but everything was fine! 2+ hours of dental work done and I was out cold for all of it!
Try not to stress about this, everything will be fine. Thousands of people have this done and all have turned out okay.
sleep dentistry? that sounds awesome! i must ask my dentist what the go is- i always demand happy gas and he knows im panicky and he does his best to calm me.
the fear of it is worse than the actual procedure.
