Yeah, neither my experiences with dentists where nice. My first visit went nicely, got rid of a black spot and got patched up, but the second one... The doc drilled a relatively healthy and no-problem causing tooth just to patch it with an useless seal which breaked after just 24 hours and caused me the most dreadful pains by now.
Last time I went to my dentist, he fucked up a filling and I haven't been back since. I can't eat on my left side because of it, but idgaf. I take care of my teeth the best I can, and I don't feel pain at all so long as I don't eat on my left. My dentists have nagged me for years about my shitty teeth but no matter how hard I try it ain't good enough.
My cracked-filling tooth is a bit yellow from not getting used (I think), but I make sure to brush that sucker longer than the others.
Wait wait....so the dentist sucks because they're doing their job of promoting your oral health? You knew you were gonna see them. At least brush your teeth well a week before, do some good flossing too before you go. Your bad habits are your own fault. I only brush once a day (and very rarely floss) but when I brush, I am VERY thorough about it. You could also swap to an electric toothbrush, the difference is just amazing.
Yeah I've been there... literally. Had to have an unconventional metal contraption attached to my back teeth for 6 months to push my bottom jaw forward when I was 12 and then braces on for another 6 months to keep it in place. During that time I managed to get gum disease which was a lifetime first because I couldn't get to the areas the braces were covering when cleaning my teeth. Dentist got all pissy about it and lectured me. My teeth/gums have been fine since and his $2000 operation did shit all in the way of pushing my bottom jaw forward, it went back to where it was.
