I have anxiety when it comes to the whole dentist experience. I guess it's a fairly common thing, but that doesn't make it any less embarrassing to be sobbing like a 9 year old when you are 29. As if I weren't humiliated enough, the doctor kind of made me feel as if my anxiety was foolish and I was annoying him. He doesn't have an office that is equipped with laughing gas, and that's usually all I need to relax. Instead I had to take some tranquilizer that required me to be picked up and dropped off by someone else, and generally incapacitated me for the whole day every time I had to be seen. There it is... your whole day down the drain. They are not able to make any kind of payment arrangements when your insurance leaves you with a large amount left to pay on something, and you have to pay up front, so if you are in pain but you don't have 2,000$ right then, then you are just S.O.L. until you do. After a while of seeing him, I guess we developed and appreciation for each other's personalities, but he was just always a little rude, and like I said, he made me feel small for having a dentist phobia. My temporary crowns were always coming off, and sometimes I 'd have to wait a while to get them put back on. I always felt like he was too busy and I was wasting his time with my bad teeth...
Anyhow, He left a food trap after he gave me a crown one time. I told him about it twice, and he said it was nothing to worry about, but if it was really bothering me ( it WAS or I wouldn't have said something twice), we could take care of it some other time. Well I got pregnant shortly afterward, and couldn't take tranquilizers, so I didn't go back for a while. One time While I was very pregnant I was eyeing a croissant in the doughnut case at the supermarket. He saw me and gave me a comment about how I shouldn't eat stuff like that. He used to be he stopped and now he's much thinner...
After having a child, I never had a whole day where I could be in la-la land the way I could before, so I found a new dentist with nitrous. My new dentist discovered that the food trap had led to a cavity that was now rotting away at my bone. I need a new crown, but unfortunately my last one wasn't even two years old and insurance won't pay for it. It's Ok though. My tooth's hurt for so long anyway, I've become accustomed to the pain.
