I find myself so afraid of going to the dentist that I have allowed small problems turn in to larger issues. I'm not sure how common this fear is but I feel like my jaw will break from the pressure of a tooth being removed. Also my heart rate increases , I shake and hyperventilate when Im sitting in the chair. Any suggestions?

You can discuss your fears with your dentist and maybe consider undergoing future treatments under sedation. Sometimes gas can be used, other times oral tablets or even IV sedation. There are alternatives, but most of the time, if you explain your fears to the dentist, and he explains the procedure in detail, so that you know what to expect, your fears can be alleviated.
