I'm extremely fearful of dental work. I have full blown panic attack
once I go. I thrown up, pass out, hyperventilate and I've bitten two dentists
(broke skin - not on purpose - just did it).
With the exception of the dentist I saw last fall, I've only been to one dentist in about 20 years. I struggle with just brushing my teeth. It always makes me gag and more often than not I throw up. Anything I can do to try and go to the dentist?
Your only option is to find a university dental school and see if the oral
surgeon can work with other departments to fix your mouth in the operating
room under general anesthesia. Call around and talk to specialists in your
area to see if anyone can help you out. You may want to consider
extracting your teeth and placing dentures if you have a lot of dental problems
