Call your nearest dentist and ask if they offer nitrous oxide gas.  You won't be unconsious, but you won't care a bit.  I feel the same way about the dentist and that stuff has been a life saver, or better said, tooth saver :)

Im the same way. Please tell me if you went and took Jades advice. I need to know how you did for my own sake.
Good luck, I know that fear. We have to get over this some how!!!

Dentistry will lead you little bit pain but its necessary for your dental health. As precaution is better than cure. You should take dentistry checkup regularly.
Our dental health is too much important for Body Health. As it assists in growing up.
