Q.

great fear and great pain

Doc,

I have a huge problem. Biggest is i am so afraid for a dentist.

I have one of my big teeth that has broken so badly that the one side is totally gone and it is so painfull I have been living on dictoflam for the past year.

This past few days I have this burning sensation around the tooth and it is asif my wisdom tooth that came out last year is also painfull.

Now i don''t know whether it is just because of the one tooth or both.

I am afraid of going to theatre as well for this.

if you do the procedure in the consultation room do they give you good anastesis for the tooth or what?

i know i cnanot go on like this but it''s like a phoby that i have for a dentist because of just on dr.

the tooth can be numbed completely in the rooms. It is not always necessary to go to theatre.
Speak to your dentist about your fears- I'm sure all will be ok.
