My tooth is hurting so bad

Scared of the dentist.
The pain keeps escalating all week.
Been thinking I rather be dead.

Been keeping it a secret but can’t stand the pain today and cried.
Told my husband and he scheduled me a dentist appointment tomorrow.

Still sad and in pain and feel hopeless.
Maybe it will be resolved tomorrow.

Tooth pain is the worst. I’ve had it many times over the years. Definitely get to that dentist. They can relieve you of pain!

Yeah. I have no choice. Guess I am making progress.

Lack of self care has lead to so many health problems and enduring so much pain.

Just go and get it over with and you won’t be in anymore pain. A root canal is pretty painless these days. I’d rather get a root canal than just an ordinary filling.

Good luck clean at the dentist @Kxev. You’ll be glad you went when it’s over.

I understand. I get the shakes at the dentist due to a bad experience. I’ve been avoiding going because my office has new dentists, the old ones retired. My teeth on one side hurt and I have a broken molar on the other side.

I’m so sorry! I haven’t been to the dentist in many years because it’s always bad news. But, I need to go, and I’m glad you’re going. I hope they help you feel better quickly and that afterwards you’re glad you went! :heart:

Infections in your teeth can get into your bloodstream and wind up elsewhere, especially in your heart valves. It’s called bacterial endocarditis. Get that tooth fixed or pulled ASAP.

@Revel , I know just how you feel. I brush my teeth regularly, etc., and use Listerine every night, but there’s bad news every time. I used to go regularly, actually. I moved to a whole new area nine years ago and have just never made it a priority to get a new dentist.
I hope you go and get good news this time! :heart:
