I think a thread about dentists existed on the old board, but still... I thought I was stupid at being afraid of dentists. Now I searched the Internet and found that there are a lot of names to this phobia (odontophobia, dentophobia, dentist phobia, dental anxiety or dental fear... just curious to know). Anyway, the article says about 75% of adult people experience that... The issue is I found a new hole in my tooth... it's pretty bad. Besides, it's a so-called wisdom tooth and I've heard they need to be pulled out... I am terrible scared of this. I know I will have to visit the dentist's soon and have something done about it, I know I cannot do anything to evade this... But I can't cope with fear. Does anyone have some advise how to stop being scared? I would really appreciate that.
