I Hate Going to the Dentist

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 600 People


    I hate going to the dentist because they will put something in my teeth only to find out it was actually a driller and no anesthesia. I didn't feel anything because I thought he was simply cleaning my teeth then the doctor told me the truth after the procedure. And that's when...

    But I Always Go

    Something about the dentist ..... the way his hands smell. I HATE that smell :( And the chair ... I really start to freak out a little when I hear the drill, or the little shiny pick tools come out to test your teeth. No - dentist is NOT a great...

    Last Thursday I went to see the dentist. It was my first visit seeing my new dentist, because I stopped going to my old dentist due to being unhappy with them. I was very dissatisfied with the dental Hygienist that cleaned my teeth. And when I first started seeing them I asked...

    It's Always Like Torture

    I mean really... Up to four hands poking around in your mouth. Sharp steel intruments and a high speed drill. Bright lights in your face like the 3rd degree. Plus the choking and all that fun stuff. TORTURE!  PLUS!  They charge you an arm and a leg to do it to you...

    I am going to a dentist

    who provides nitrous oxide, other wise I will have an anxiety attack. Aesthetically I enjoy the tools, the chair, the molds, the metal, the machines, but when they are in my mouth, deep panic.

    The numbing thing the dentist uses has no

    effect on me. But I didn't figure that out until AFTER they pulled two teeth. I thought it was supposed to hurt really bad and without it I would pass out from the pain. But no, you're not really supposed to feel anything. At least not as much as I did.
