Since November last year I have become very aware of my teeth, particularly my two front teeth. I've become so obsessed that those teeth are going to fall out and I spend a lot of my day prodding and touching them with my tongue. I have convinced myself they are wobbly and even eating is becoming a challenge as I don't want to bite into food in case it causes my teeth to become looser or worse, fall out! I'm too frightened to go to a dentist because I worry that they will confirm my fears and tell me I need to have my teeth removed and replaced. I think I've become so obsessed with my teeth that all of this behaviour is coming from my anxiety. I don't know how to stop this obsession, it's making me so miserable and no amount of reassurance from my loved ones is making any difference.
Anyone else had an experience similar or the same as me? Any help or advice would be hugely appreciated! Thanks x
