I've been through a strange few days. One of my teeth was playing up and has sadly been ignored during the lockdown. I finally got to the dentist and although the guy I see is one of the best people in his field, he was not allowed to use "a drill" for any procedure at all.
I suffer nightmares and have a very bad "dentist fear" (since childhood) therefore I am given sedation" but the sedation is going up and up in price each visit and as its getting crazy. It's now changed to a new form of sedation (not as strong as a general anth) and I am still aware of whats happening.
My friend suggested taking an anxiety med an hour before I get to dentist instead of the sedation but I would not know what to take. If anyone has any ideas to help me sort this out I would be eternally grateful. Hope you are all coping in these crazy times and God bless you all for all the info and support you have given me over the years. love and peace
The best anxiety meds are the benzodiazepines such as xanax, valium or klonipin? I have some left over xanax from years ago which I still take it for "heavy" dental procedures or just anxiety in general, (which isn't often, thankfully.) None of them will be as "strong" as real sedation tho.
