Everyone calls me a hypochondriac and maybe I am. I keep thinking I’ve something wrong with my health. I constantly talk about something wrong that’s not actually true but this time I’m not sure if I’m right or wrong.
My tooth is loose/painful (I think) and the gum is kinda pulled away from the tooth a little. Everyone tells me it’s fine. That I’m imagining it but I’m not sure. I really want to go to the dentist. It’s making me so uncomfortable I don’t want to eat because I’m scared it will fall out. I googled it and gum disease came up. I can’t get it out of my head that I’ve gum disease. I know I should just wait til the appointment in like 2 weeks but I’m scared:(

Avoid gum disease by drinking milk and brushing your teeth properly, twice a day. Do not over do it or brush too hard. Hope this eases your worries.

Never eat sugared yumyums before you go to bed. You could literally wake up with gum disease.

Sometimes googling your symptoms is not the best idea. You can google cough and webmd will be like yeah you have lung cancer, the flu, bronchitis, and heart disease lol. Sounds like you already have an appointment with the dentist which is great. If you're too paranoid you could always see if they have any openings earlier than 2 weeks away. Medical issues or potential issues can make anyone scared so it's totally understandable. Just try to hang on until your dentist appointment and keep up your dental hygiene.
