I have decided to switch dentists. I had another appt with the dentist in two weeks and have been having panic attacks just knowing I had to go back. I could not keep the appt. I could not talk myself into going back there. I talked with some friends and only one goes to another dentist that takes my insurance. She had nothing but Good things to say! So I looked up the number and talked with the dentist! He will have to take x rays and make a plan from there. Yet says that there is no reason why he can't finish what has been started already! He did say that if I have a panic attack in his office or even one before I get there to let him know. He will just do the x rays make a plan and send me and his plan to another dentist that does the sedation! Not all dentists do it.....but he has a good friend that does! Sure instead of going in 2 weeks I have to wait a month. But that gives me a month to heal from the last 4 teeth extractions and hopefully not be so nervous or panicky when I go! He said this is the best thing for ME.
I felt better after talking to him on the phone! It even felt good to make the appt with him. I wan't full of dread and I was able to breath! Then I turned around and called the sadist dentist up and canceled my appts with her. Just dialing the number made my chest tighten. I just kept telling myself all i was doing was cancelling the appts so I didn't have to go back. By the time I was off the phone I was in a full panic attack.
No one can't anything done when they can't breath and feeling nothing but dread. I was able to shorten the attack by remembering the conversation I had with the new dentist! I can finally breath and feel really good about this choice! I thank all of you who gave me advice! I was feeling like I was over reacting or something but clearly I was not!
