Scared of going to the dentist in New Jersey: I am really scared about going to the dentist for anything more then just a cleaning. And even though a cleaning I am a nervous wreck. I was told at my last dental appointment that I need to have three small filling done.
I asked the dentist would they be giving me Valium in order to help me relax and was told no. That they do not give out Valium for just filling and that they would numb me up so I would not feel anything but they do not get that I can not have filling done unless I am a little out of it. What can I do? My mom will not take me to see any other dentist.
Connecticut Dental Care: For a long time now I hear people staying how our old silver filling are really bad and should be removed. I have like six or seven old silver fillings. I got them when I was a kids. I am no longer a child and I have had my filling for many years without any problems. Should I really be worried about then now?
Connecticut Dental Fears: I need advise please. My mom made me get one of your dental discount plans since that was what I could afford and the Careington dental plan did look preety good. However, my problem is that I have dental fares that really keep me from going to the dentist.
However my mom is calling up dentist in the plan net work and is going to make me go to the dentist for a check up and cleaning. I scared and she does not get it. I know I am twenty but I still scared. How can I feel better about going to the dentist? Tips and advise would be nice.
I will be getting a dental discount plan my dentist told me about which was how I found your website. The thing is I have four missing teeth that insurance will not cover but my dentist takes the Careington dental plan which I bought here from you.
I need as much information as I can get on a having a dental bridge done. Is having a bridge comfortable? Will it hurt having it put on? Will the bridge look just like my teeth or will people know I have it?
I let my teeth go and now I have so much work done that needs to be done, and it is very scary. Please help. Knowing more may make it not seem so bad.
I need to have three teeth pulled. I was looking at your discount plans since I need to have this dental work done ASAP. I am in a lot of pain and can not aford to wait for dental coverages. That said I do not see anywhere on the plans about anestheis. I am a big baby and I will not have my teeth pulled while I am awake. What kind of discounts if any do you get for being put to sleep?
Right now I do not have any dental insurance for myself or for my six year old daughter. I work part time and do not get dental insurance. Although I get some governmental help I do not get dental only medical care for my child.
That being said, my daughter may have a cavity since she says one of her teeth hurts her on and off. Knowing that I can not afford to take her to a general dentist I took her to a dental clinic that said they offer free dental services to minors of low income families.
I was glad to find a place but my daughter was only with the dentist for less then a few minutes when they tell me that they can not help me since my daughter is scared of them and is kicking and screaming. Well she is only six so what if she is scared I was so mad that a place that is suppose to help low income families kick us out.
I want to file a complaint on them for not helping us out. They were very rude and did not give my daughter any time to adjust. I was told I could try again when my daughter is able to behave. What can I do now? This has to be a joke.

My job just changed their group dental plans that they offer to us. Prior to the change I had Delta Dental that let me choose my dentist. Now do to cost they change to a net work plan where my dentist is not listed. I want to stay with my dentist but my dentist told me that since they are not a network dentist I would not have coverage and I would be paying them in full if I choose to stay with them.
I do not know what to do. My dentist is important to me. She was the first dentist that I really like since going to the dentist is a big fear of mine. I do not want to risk having a different dentist but my job does not offer any other type of dental insurance. Is there a way to keep my dentist and still have dental insurance.
I have a dental insurance plan where I am able to go to any dentist I choose. My family dentist I have been seeing most of my life retired last year and I need to go to the dentist. I called my insurance company for a dental office recommendation but was told they do not tell us were to go because they are a non network plan.
Not 100% sure what that means. However, how do I go about getting a recommendation to a good dentist. I have to admit to being dentist phobic. That was way I really like my last dentist he was always so kind to me which helped me a lot.
I have very crooked teeth since I was a kid. I want to get them fixed so I was thinking about getting braces and talking to an Orthodontic dentist for a consult. What I am worried is that I heard tales that in order to straighten out your teeth sometimes they have to pull out a few teeth.
I am not worried about the braces I can deal with that but I really do not want have to have any teeth pulled. Pulling teeth is scary to me and I do not like being in pain. Is it true that the Orthodontic dentist may have to pull my teeth.
I would like to know if there is a way of telling if you have a cavity before it starts to hurt you. Please no answers about me going to the dentist because I am talking besides going to the dentist. I really do not like the dentist so I would rather put off seeing one unless I have no choose about it. However that does not mean I want to be in pain either. I hear cavities when they get too big will hurt like heck. How can you tell you have a cavity before it gets to that point?
I have big time dental fears so I can not go to just any general dentist since even for just a cleaning need to have a specialist knock me out of it. Because of my fears I have to pay big time dollars for my dental services which my current dental insurance will not cover. They will only cover me on UCR for general dental prices. Where can I get a dental insurance that will insured for specialist? I try explaining to my dental insurance that I do not see a specialist just to have it cost more but they state it does not matter it is up to me where I go and the coverages are what I get if I go to a specialist for my fears.
I am having to get two teeth pulled and the dentist that will be pulling them will not be giving me Valium. I told the dentist that I really do not like dentist or having to have dental work done. I get really scared and nervous to the point that it makes me sick. I was told that she does not use Valium but would numb me up so that I will not feel anything. First is that possible to numb me up well enough that I will not feel any type of pain? Second do all family dentist not use Valium? I do not have insurance that covers me to go to a surgeon but can not understand why a general dentist refuses to use Valium.
