About Good Dentists And Dental Fear


Today I was brushing my teeth and then I noticed something is wrong, it seems I damaged one of my fillings during the brushing. Back then I had a quite big dental fear, but since I had so many dentist appointments last year, it seems that I lost this fear completely. I lost this fear already last year, but it seems the fear never came back. Today I visited one of my dentists again, because as said, one of my fillings broke today, and he repaired the tooth with a new nice looking plastic filling. I have two dentists, I … Continue reading About Good Dentists And Dental Fear

Yet Again Another Triumph Over The Dental Phobia


I talked quite often about my dental phobia on my blog. Over the last months there was partial success but it´s not always easy as I also suffer from agoraphobia and anxiety attacks but this is another story, but worth to mention as both diseases make something like a dental visit quite difficult. I have my agoraphobia under control since some years now and it was not even clear if it is agoraphobia or social anxiety as it is hard to say but what ever it is, I could fight it back and this makes me very happy. However, the … Continue reading Yet Again Another Triumph Over The Dental Phobia

Physiotherapy Next Monday


I mentioned that I have problems with my jaw since a dental treatment and today I visited the oral surgeon again. They did measure how I can open my mouth and they said I would only be able to open my mouth 15 millimeter. The doctor said that they had problems to open my mouth while the dental treatment (I was sedated) over a month ago and today they said that they did manually open my mouth while the treatment at that time. She said that this could have caused either that my jaw musculature is overstretched or that my … Continue reading Physiotherapy Next Monday

Another victory over the dental fear…


I had an appointment with my dentist yesterday. He wanted to take a look if the wound healing would be good. I mentioned that I had a bigger dental treatment. But my dentist noticed yesterday that I had still bone fragments in the wound and he said that this wouldn´t be good as they would interfere with the wound healing. He said one wound would be ok but the other not due to the bone fragments. They said they would need to remove them and that they would give me a local anesthesia to remove the fragments. I said “Wait, … Continue reading Another victory over the dental fear…

Alive and First Dental Operation Behind Me With Help of Midazolam


I wrote days ago why I didn´t have the time to write much here and why I didn´t want to write anything as I was too nervous. I am more relaxed now but there are still some dental operations next weeks but compared to the last one they are rather minor I guess. Yesterday (Wednesday) was the big day as I had to visit the oral surgeon because of a root end surgery for one tooth and an extraction of another tooth. I decided days before that I would not let them do all this with me without being sedated. … Continue reading Alive and First Dental Operation Behind Me With Help of Midazolam

Nervous and stressed…


It could be a little bit quieter than usual on my blog next days or even weeks. I didn´t write that much last days as I had to fight with toothache. Explosion would be the best description for the pain last days. It felt like one of my teeth would explode. I visited a dentist who gave me Ibuprofen 600 mg. They helped a little bit to get over the pain. But at the same time my dentist said that the trouble maker would need to be extracted but that he couldn´t do it. He meant that an oral surgeon … Continue reading Nervous and stressed…
