Fear of dentist
I am extremely nervous of the dentist therefore when the dentist tries to start a procedure my heart races dramatically (adrenalin).When he gives an injection with adrenalin in, my heart races even faster.It is extremely nerve racking for me.Do you h ave any suggestions?

speak to your dentist about this-have him calm you down before the procedure and explain EVERY step in detail.
fear of the unknown is traumatic.
Patients who know what to expect are much more relaxed.
Good luck
