    Veneer Nazi

    Cosmetic dentists are sometimes a little hyped up over veneering everything that moves. While this is really about a friend, the story is simply the fact that she already had a nice smile and she was talked into porcelain veneers. Her teeth don't look natural anymore and at $100...

    Childhood Experience

    A visit to the dentist often meant being put to sleep with gas in order to have teeth removed. Ever since those days I have had a fear and dread of going to the dentist. I recall all too often being held down in the chair by a dental nurse, having a strap securing me to the chair...

    My First Gassing

    When I was 12 my mother took me to the school clinic after I had been up all night with tooth ache. I was sat on a bench with several other boys and girls who were there by appointment. As an emergency I was to be the last patient. About every 10 minutes the nurse came for a...

    She Said I Was Lying For Attention

    At the time all of this began I was 16 years old. My dentist was an old man and kept on telling my tooth pain was just sensitive teeth because nothing was showing on the X-ray. A couple weeks later, out of frustration of pain, I transferred to this new dental office with...

    My dentist sold me a surgery described

    as "peeling beck the gum just a little to install an implant". BUT-When he made the initial incision he then said-- "OK- this next part, part here we retract the roof of your mouth from the bone underneath to get a better view, takes about 20 minutes to two hours." My palate...

    Dentists Are Evil...at Least Mine Were.

      I have not had just one bad experience, but about a dozen or more and do not know what to do at this point about it.  I am SCARED to death of dentists, even more so than major surgery or even death.  You will see why in a moment.  My first bad experience...

    Dentist

    I remember the dental Calgary I used to go to when I was younger but when I moved there wasn't much of dental people I knew were good to go to. I went to a guy that solved needles in my mouth and the numbing stuff he used on me didn't work, I felt every single thing. I hated it...

    Dentists Are Evil...

    When I was little, and I mean REALLY little, I didn't think that you had to use toothpaste to brush your teeth... I just used water and scrubbed for three seconds and then I was done. This went on for about 6 months before my mom figured out what was going on... Needless to say I...

    I had a dentist keep me in a dental chair

    for 8 hours and I received over 20 shots of novacane for the pain and that was it to remove 3 front teeth while I was awake and watching. The dentist was also treating other patients at the same time he was performing oral surgery on me. Also, he refused to give me any...

    I am grown now (of course, some would debate this!) and am still fighting the ever-present fear of going to the dentist. Typically, I have my dentist prescribe some type of oral sedative whenever I get work done. As of recent years, I have been able to sit through a cleaning as...

    Had Enough Of It

    Dentist was a part of my childhood. When I was little, I did not like to brush my teeth, and I always drank some milk before I went to sleep (which is not a really good habit). No wonder then I had so many tooth decay. Many teeth got pulled out. And filled. I can't remember how...

    Drunken Root Canal Hell

    I was nine and he was drunk. No one seemed to notice except for me. I had a cavity, and rather than simply take the baby tooth out, my dentist decided he should perform a root canal.(That should have been the first sign that there was something wrong) He drilled into my tooth and...

    I got fillings done once

    and one of my teeth wouldn't go numb all the way. He started drilling anyway, that wasn't pleasant. He gave me so many shots that my cheek was swollen for a very long time and it left a bruise.

    My dentist told me I need braces.

    I said okay (I was excited) then he told but first you have to get rid of your baby teethes. I have 4 baby teethes. They are in the front of my mouth. I didn't return back to the dentist ever since.

    Why I Hate the Dentist.

    I think I was about 7 or 8 at the time. My dentist was a nice guy, or at least he had always seemed that way to me. I was a little kid and simple cleanings were all I had ever had to go through. The worst part of a regular cleaning was the flouride trays. Then it happened. I...
