AnnMarie you are not being a wimp there are many many people that feel the same as you, explain to your dentist how you feel most dentist will understand and be very considerate towards you, my SIL is petrified of the dentist and has to have a mild sedative before she will even get into the chair.

Feel very proud of yourself for taking the first step <3

At one appointment I got as far as sitting in the dreaded chair, started shaking so bad she sent me home again. Just felt such a fool and apologised about 50 times.
Am I the worst patient, I asked her. Her answer was " pretty much "
:-( :-(

I also go every 6months and have never lost the fear
since my schooldays(many moons ago)
I don't have problems sleeping the night before but the
minute I sit in the chair my mouth dries up and my hands
begin to sweat.
Still keep going though. :-)

I go every 6 months and I am very nervous. It doesn't stop me going, but does keep me awake the night before. No way would I have a filling without an injection Jules, I would do more harm than good because my teeth are so very sensitive that I would jump all the time. I even have an injection if I am going to have my teeth cleaned by the machine and often have manual cleaning.

are any of you really frightened to go to the dentist.
I have had a fear of the dentist from a very early age and have had to have a lot of dentistry work done over the years.
I know I am silly to feel this way but I cant help it.
Today I plucked up courage to get an appointment at the dentist,( luckily for tomorrow so i dont have to worry for too long)
I am ashamed to say I havnt been for at least 8years.I know I need quite a bit of treatment so have a few more visits to cope with.
Think I am going to have a sleepless night.lol. :-( :-( :-( :-( :-(
