Overcoming and finally addressing one’s fears

User Level:
Posted by: leoma  (10 years ago)

After a long abstinence regarding dental visits, many cigarettes, drinking cola by the liter, and lousy oral hygiene, my mouth has reached a condition that I would like to do something about. On the one hand, the obvious (aesthetic) main issues are the cavities, but on the other hand, there is also discoloration. I'm able to imagine how a cavity that has developed on the chewing surface of a molar can be treated, but my particular problem is beyond my imagination: What can be done with a cavity between the two central incisors? Is it possible to “fill” that as well? What about cavities on the edge of the gums? What would I have to do if I wanted to brighten the teeth somewhat (i.e. the other ones as well)?

Since I really don’t feel comfortable anymore – I do not smile much, hole myself up at home more and more – and since a strange feeling (sometimes a light ache without any cause, sometimes sensitivity towards certain things) has appeared as well, I would like to address this very soon and, of course, enjoy a more “acceptable” situation. Thus, my question is: How long would I have to wait for an appointment with you? How many visits would be necessary? In what time intervals?
