I havent visited a dentist for many years and all my teeth

Resolved Question:

I haven't visited a dentist for many years and all my teeth need to be removed urgently.
During my childhood someone attempted to suffocate me in a hospital. I buried the memory of this attack and the details are very unclear now. During times of stress I suffer with a
choking sensation and have to sleep with the windows firmly secure. I suffer with the same sensation if I have a sore throat or someone puts something in my mouth. My only visit to
a dentist during adulthood resulted in a semi conscious attempt to climb out of a bedroom window, but woke up before I got out. Could you give me any helpful advice?
Thank you,
Sean Blackwell
