Ask them to give you the "laughing gas"/nitrous oxide. I promise you, after having this stuff, you'll never be anxious about the dentist again. It's the best thing I've ever felt, lol. It cost about $50 extra, and insurance won't cover it, but it was worth it!
rkoloms: I am with you!! I HATE going to the dentist. I haven't been to the dentist in 13 years but my son goes every 6 months. I need to go because my wisdom teeth are starting to bother me, I will be taking Xanax before I go...maybe 2.
