    having heart problems is really a reason to go to a dentist, since infections can go to your heart-seriously.Take a deep breath...get your local yellow pages & "shop"- yes...shop for a dentist that sounds like they would be sympathetic when you call & ask questions. Let them know you've delayed seeing one in years & you'll get answers from either a nice receptionist or someone who isn't. See who has laughing gas-this will calm you down & some dentists will put you to sleep & work on your mouth. You shouldn't have any problems with dentures once allt eeth were removed-it's all gums that you'd be working with. But...there may be alot of things available to help your mouth-just don't let your fears ruin any future chances to get help now.
    God bless you

    Hi There is only one answer to this if you really want to get onto of your dental problems then you have to go to the dentist.Tell the dentist that you are alittle frighten and they will talk you though what they are doing.Ask around your friends if they know a good dentist.
    I'm in and out the dentist alot these days as I have braces on and I was scared through some parts of the dentist but I thought I want to get my teeth healthy so I have to do this and I will not die.

    Good luck with everything
