I recently took the plunge to see the dentist after 7 years due to me getting really bad tooth ache after ingoring the fact that I have broken my tooth last april when holiday and never went to get it looked at and removed it because I generally don't like the fact that you have to pay for treatment e.t.c also I have had bad experiences with dentist in the past so If I have to go it has to been with a special needs dentist and the one I saw yesterday became my go to dentist person and see will be doing all the treatment I need like a tooth removal, a filling and clean but the dentist person is going to be building me up to the tooth removal stage and by doing minor treatments to get me used to what going on and what the person is like.
Has anyone esle had issues with dentist or struggle to see a Special Needs ones and what are your thoughts on the dentist and autism situation.
I struggle with the dentist, but I'm going to try a new one that "welcomes nervous patients", so we'll see if they're a bit more sensitive!
Hope you get on okay - glad you found a new dentist who'll ease you into it slowly.
I used to go this dentist service before when it was free but I got to get back into now with my broken nasher needing some attention
