Hi all.

Firstly i'd like to shamelessly admit i don't do dentists!! My teeth are a mess as i haven't been for over ten years. I'm honestly scared stiff of dentists and needles etc etc.

Anyway i have a molar which has been broken for over a year with no pain, but now its finally loose.

I know most of you will probably think grow up and visit the dentist, but i wanna know what happens if it comes out on its own? Blood, pain, etc. Can i manage without it?

Thanks in advance.

an xray would be needed to see if there is bone loss in that area.
This can happen if the oral hygiene is not good.
It may come as a shock to you, but gum disease is mostly painless.
Don't shoot the messenger....only trying to help

No no i appreciate the help, thanks.

That tooth has got a filling, but has been broke in half for over a year i think.

So do you think it will come out on its own, or will i eventually have to grow up and visit the dentist. The latter by the way has probably got a 90% chance of not happening because of my phobia

Get to the dentist. I know you have never had an infection before, but that doesn't mean you won't (or don't as the case may be). Also, you want to get the lower one checked so that it doesn't become a bigger problem. A lot of people have a fear of the dentist. There are things that can be done to help you get through your appointment. Your dentist can prescribe you a pill to help you relax (you will need a driver), or Nitrous is another option. Don't let this go. Dental infections can be very dangerous if left unattended. Good luck, and please let me know how it goes.

Thank you. I know i should but this phobia is a massive problem for me. I had to have blood taken about 7 years ago and was sick and nearly passed out just from that. The whole idea of the dentist gets me going just thinking about it. The build up before, getting there, going through the door, waiting, the smell, the noise, etc etc etc etc.

Writing this has made me realize my phobia is bigger than i thought :(

having not had a phobia, it's difficult for any of us to know what you are going through.

Now i'm even more scared and in pain.

The remaining quarter of a tooth i've had for months has now snapped off along with some of the filling.

But i still can't bring myself to go

Johnny Benson, you really need to go to a dentist. Many dentists like me offer sedation dentistry for anxious/nervous patients such as yourself. You sound like you have a serious phobia and sedation dentistry can help you. Just search for something like "sedation dentistry" or "sedation dentist" in your area.

You're doing yourself more harm by not going to a dentist. Whatever you got to do, make a visit to a dentist. Good luck.
