It seems you have neglected dental hygiene for so long that it resulted in cavities of almost 7 teeth. I think you should check with your dentist and according to the condition of cavities in your teeth, the doctor will suggest the type of filling. Hopefully, they will not do the entire filling at once. They will call you for three appointment.

Seven cavities at a time is a bit high amount of teeth decay. Me had a similar experience a couple of months back , when my dentist found out 4 cavities (http://www.shorttermbraces.com/services/cavity-treatment/ ). Though he could have filled all of them in a single appointment, he decided to do it in two appointments to avoid any possible risks. I think filling two or maximum three teeth at a time is the best.

Hi,

As mentioned above, filling two or maximum three teeth at a time is the best because it is the cheapest way to do this. Sometimes some doctor takes money depend on your appointment. So it will very costly. But it depends on type of filling.

You can do them one at a time, all at once, or however. The logical way is to do one side of your mouth at a time.

Be very, very cautious about them using direct resin fillings, which have a relatively short life, and are not very resistant to decay.

If you are scared, the dentist can give you 10mg of oral Valium to take an hour before, then put you on laughing gas. This works well for most of my nervous patients.
