Hello,

I have tooth decay and this is giving me loads of pain. My brother is telling me to go to a dentist but the problem here is the fear of dentist. I don't know what to do.

Thank you
I would see a dentist recommended by someone - you might just need some antibiotics. Better to get it sorted before i gets worse.

Hello,

I can understand your plight and the fear of dentist has been a very old phobia for a lot of people. I won't tell you to take out the fear, it's impossible but I'd rather advise you to muster some courage and go for it. After the extraction, the fear will vanish.
