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
As mentioned earlier, I had to visit the dentist today and the cat on the photo above welcomed me outside near the entrance. While I love all cats, I do think that this is a very beautiful cat too. This seemed to be a very chatty cat and miaowed a lot. Maybe she did smell my cat Shyna? Who knows. Continue reading This Beautiful Cat Welcomed Me When I Visited The Dentist
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
I called the jaw surgery days ago and asked for an early appointment to check out my jaw. I mentioned that I suffer from Trismus since my last dental treatment. The secretary of the jaw surgery said that I could only stop by next week as their waiting list is full. This is very common today in Germany. We never had this problem a decade ago but it´s now a new problem, you need to wait for everything but you get used to it. I thought I could wait until next week but then I realized that it even hurts … Continue reading Visited The Hospital Because Of The Trismus
Looks like I am suffering from Trismus. This term refers to mouth and jaw opening problems. I had a dental treatment behind me as I mentioned earlier and I also had some appointments as the dentist wanted to check out the wound healing and he removed bone fragments from the wound. I told the dentist that I have problems with my jaw and to open the mouth. The mouth corner was a little bit torn after the first big treatment but I had this problem for a week and then was everything ok. But I still couldn´t and I still … Continue reading Still Problems To Open The Jaw After Dental Treatment. Has Anyone Ever Had Trismus?
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…
