Odontophobia - Fear of Dentists
I have broken a tooth.
(Think of all the swearing you have ever heard, make up a couple of new swear words and insert them here)
The problem is, I am scared of the dentist. I mean REALLLLLLLY scared.
You say dentist and I either see this guy, or Steve Martin in Little Shop Of Horrors, either way. I DO NOT LIKE THE DENTIST.
Yes, I know I HAVE TO GO, (Anyone else wish that teeth were like fingernails and just grew back?) partly because, OH MY GOD MY MOUTH HURTS. Yes, I know that once I go, (eventually) I will feel better, but I DO NOT LIKE THE DENTIST.
I actually bit a dentist once, he has his fingers in my mouth and I was going to throw up, he wouldn't stop, so I bit him. Not big, not brave and not clever, I know. But I was scared and I wanted him to stop rummaging in my mouth like an old lady with a huge handbag searching for a loose mint.
I don't know anyone who actually goes, "Whooo Hooooo, it is time to visit the dentist" but I don't know if I am alone in being a total scaredy cat who is wondering how long I can actually leave this broken tooth before it gives me grief. Well yes, I KNOW it hurts now, but that will go,
Help me out here, am I alone in being frightened of the dentist? Do I need to woman up and make the appt? Who wants to hold my hand?
Let me know
