Fear and the Dentist

Do any of you have fears? Maybe it is a fear of needles, heights, animals or even that trip to the dentist? I have always gone to my local dentist and have never had need to go to the Orem Dentist. Personally I never had a fear of going to see my dentist. No bragging but I always took good care of my teeth so I never worried about someone looking in my mouth. But then one day it hit a snag. I learned that I had extra teeth in my mouth and would need to have surgery. Needless to say I was scared to death. Not literally:) But it was something I freaked out about. I had never had surgery or anything like it and to learn that they were going to play around with needles in my mouth was enough for me. I wasn't too sure about it. But it had to be done or it could mess up the rest of my teeth. I also had to go somewhere that I wasn't used to as my regular dentist couldn't do the surgery.

I walked in and I think I had a panic attack. I may not have looked scared but I was and I think the assistant saw it. She got me seated in the waiting room and went to get the dentist. He brought me into sit down and then explained everything they would be doing during the surgery and what would be going on. They gave me the shot that was supposed to numb my mouth and we waited a little bit. At that time I started feeling sick to my stomach. The assistant explained this happens quite often and they gave me some oxygen until I calmed down. With it being a while ago, I can look back and laugh now, but at the time it was not very funny. I have now overcome that fear, especially as I haven't had any other problems. I am talking about all this to tell you that no matter what fear you have, however irrational or unexplained it may be, you can work through it.
