My teeth have been feeling a bit sensitive and painful recently and i booked an appointment for tomorrow. I am really nervous as i haven't been the dentist since i was a kid, probably around 11/12 years old and now i'm 26! I am really worried that my teeth have got bad. Before this my teeth were okay, but i should have been to the dentist a lot earlier than i am.

Any reassuring advice would be great, thanks.

One good thing that you need to keep in mind is that during the past 10-15 years dentistry has advanced hugely and the experience will be nothing like what you were used to when you were 11/2 years old. Indeed the time you haven't visited a dentist is too long and perhaps something might have gone bad but your dentist will check and let you know. Find someone that makes you feel comfortable and you trust and everything is going to be okay.
Good luck!
