So, in the last...2 weeks? I've noticed some problems with two of my teeth that are next to each other. They feel really dry on the backside, and I'm becoming increasingly concerned about them. I chipped one of them on a PGL at work a while ago, and I was really upset with how my current dentist dealt with it. He drilled half the tooth out and put a filling in it. However, there was no smoothing it was just REALLY rough around the filling, and I was always rubbing my tongue on it and it felt mega abrasive. That same tooth now feels terrible on the back.
Now, I know my teeth aren't fantastic. I suffered from really severe depression for about 5 years, and from that, I just couldn't bring myself to brush. I know this sounds bad, but if you've been depressed, you'll understand how difficult it can be to look after yourself. In that time, I drank a lot of soda too, and I worry I've caused damage. Now, when I went to my current dentist, they made me feel like a five year old and always made me feel 2 inches tall when I tried to explain my mental health problems and how it affected my dental hygiene.
I've contacted a private dentist in the nearest town over, who have spectacular reviews. They sound like they really care about their patients, their lead dentist is very well qualified, teaches at a local dental school, and it sounds like he'll understand.
Has anyone else had problems like this? I've e-mailed the surgery asking for an appointment when they can see me, but I'm sweating just thinking about it, because of my embarassing teeth.
