Welcome to HCM
I would like to suggest you to leave this habit because its very bad habit & will cause irreparable damage to your teeth.It will cause erosion of your teeth.You can go for oral prophylaxis right now.Prevention is better than cure.
Regarding agoraphobia, its better to go for exposure treatment & relaxation techniques to get rid of this problem. You can also go for Psychopharmaceutical treatments after consulting doctor.

Hello there.... there are ways of managing anxiety....right from behavioral to pharmacological methods...Consuming lots of aerated drinks would spoil the enamel of your tooth...the outermost layer of the tooth that would result in sensitivity...Its good that you are cutting down on the consumption...Get your wisdom teeth knocked out and get your teeth cleaned...Cleaning of your teeth would always keep your gums and supporting structures of your teeth healthy....
If you are more concerned about your smile...consult an Orthodontist for you teeth alignment.......

Thanks for writing in.
I read your problem,first of all i would like to suggest you leave you habit as soon as possible as it is destroying your teeth if you will not leave this habit condition could be worst.
For your agoraphobia,i will suggest you take an appointment to your dentist on phone and ask for your phobia he will give you suggetion over phone and talk to him to get familiar with so that you can visit dental clinic and take a proper treatment including scaling.
Nothing to get worried.

Dentist Dr. Chris Herman's  Response
First, as you are probably aware, the fizzy pop is terrible for your teeth. The black staining between your teeth could be tooth decay caused from the pop. This is very typical of a heavy soda drinker. In regards to your agoraphobia, you need to see a dentist that uses sedation. Either pills you take before your appointment or in cases where patients are extremely nervous, IV sedation. However, I recommend you see a dentist sooner than later. Tooth decay is progressive and more involved and difficult procedure are often necessary if you wait too long. As for now, try to keep your mouth clean by brushing 2-3x per day. And FLOSS! Flossing is very important for those areas between your teeth.

Good Luck!
