Okay so I honestly hate the dentist. I have went only ONCE in the past EIGHT YEARS! It’s not an anxiety feeling it’s a full on fear, everything about the place scares me so much.
The smell, it’s like a mad office with this weird pristine smell like a brand new place, it’s really hard to explain honestly I just hate it!
The noises, it has that radio playing in the background but you can never hear it over the dentist shouting “open wider” while he drills for damn oil in my teeth! The high piercing drill is the worst noise I’ve heard, like screeching demons in hell if you ask me.
The feeling, the gas makes me totally relaxed however I still feel the sharp pain of the needle going into my gums somehow. Then the awful scraping of the tools removing plaque and the vibrations. The last time I went I got a tooth pulled out and the cracking noise scared me to death with the dentist leaning over my and using my chest like a toolbox for himself.
That’s probably everything along with a few other fears I have, I really needed to get this off my chest in hope somebody can relate out there! I’m laying in my bed now in so much pain
