Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
This is Dr. David
sounds like you have an extreme phobia of going to the dentist.
how old are you? 24 years old?
yes im 24
you need to get medications to help calm down your anxiety such as klonopin or ativan or xanax so you can see a dentist and get your teeth cleaned and treated.
are you brushing and flossing your teeth regularly?
have you ever taken medications to help decrease anxiety before?
i try to clean my teeth but the pain is to much sometimes and there can be alot of blood
no i havent
you need to see a GP doctor and get treated for your anxiety and phobia
so you can see a dentist.
there are medications which can help decrease your anxiety like klonopin or ativan or xanax.
and longer acting medications like SSRI medications like zoloft (sertraline) or citalopram
which over time can help decrease anxiety.
I have tried but i cant bring myself to bring up the topic i feel as if no one will take me serious as i tried once before a few years back and noone took me seriouss
you have to see your GP doctor again.
show them your teeth.
tell them about your fears of seeing the dentist
and get treatment for your anxiety.
or else the infection around your gums will spread into your blood stream and could kill you.
but i feel as if there that bad there is nothing a dentist can do id rather just have them all removedand have nothing
you don't know that until you see a dentist.
are you a dentist?
No but when i look at them in the mirror and see and feel the pain
it sounds like bad gingivitis infection of the gums.
this can be treated with antibiotic mouth washes and better dental care and brushings.
and a better diet and more vitamin C to help your gums heal.
at age 24, you most likely don't need to have your teeth pulled.
I will try that
you need the gum infection to be treated.
good luck to you
let me know if you have other questions.
if done, please leave +++ positive feedback below the chat box
you can always reach me as Dr. David if you have other questions.
you still do need to see your GP and to see a dentist.
you shouldn't be trying to treat your bad gingivitis by yourself.
I will i grew up were i wasn't given a tooth brush till i was old enough to leave home so didn't really brush my teeth for the first 16 years apartf from the idd time at a friends or realitives
so you still need to see your GP and a dentist.
you shouldn't be trying to treat your gingivitis infection of your gums by yourself.
why did you rate poor service?
