My tooth's been really hurting for like 4 days now and I think that it's a slightly different colour to the others, which is usually what happens when it dies and the supply gets cut off? So I assume they're going to want to take it out. I'm terrified of dentists and of needles, so I'm freaking out. Does anyone have any tips that they use before going to the dentist?

Brush your teeth, but then just go, sit back, and enjoy the ride. Take a deep breath, pay attention to something else, be relaxed, then try to ignore the discomfort. But it's better to have it taken out if it's dead, rather than getting an infection and potentially dying on the long run like that guy on Reddit whose bone marrow was necrotic because of an infection in his tooth.0
