Attacked by Gum | Dente Complete Dentistry

Attacked by Gum

My entire life I’ve hated gum. Chewing gum. Bubble gum. All of it. Yuck!

Whenever I would bother my sisters, they would chew gum then put it on their finger and chase me with the gum.

I hate the sound of someone chewing gum. I hate the smell. I get very disgusted.

One day I was riding in the car with my friend. He accidentally cut off this woman and she was very mad.

She began tailgating us and laid on her horn.

This chase went on for a good minute.

She eventually caught up to us, rolled down her window, and threw a piece of chewed up gum at me.

I screamed so loud, (seriously, it was loud), that my friend who was driving thought the lady had pulled out a gun.

He thought it was hysterical, that I was deathly afraid of gum.I don’t know where I got this aversion to gum but I know I hate it.

Many people have a fear of dentistry.

When you ask these people where they developed their fear, usually they can’t recall where it originated. All they know is they hate going to the dentist.

For those patients, we offer Anxiety Free Dentistry.

Those patients receive anxiety reducing pills and that makes their appointment a more pleasant one.

If you are anxious about going to the dentist and would like to get an Anxiety Free Dental consultation, please visit us at or call 773-292-1911.

Floss like a madman!

World-Class Chicago, IL, Dentist, Dr. Emilio Couret for Exceptional Dental Care
“I’ve been seeing Dr. Couret for my dental needs for years–before he began his own office even. From Day 1–he was amazing. After years with no dental insurance, I needed a lot of work done, and was insanely anxious. Dr. Couret is an expert at putting you at ease and making you feel at home. And he seems to take the time needed to ensure his staff does the same. My teeth look amazing, and you will not find a more caring, comforting team in Chicago. They take the time to not just check your teeth, but to check of any issues that might arise, including cancers that other doctors may overlook. My husband and I are in the middle of planning a long-distance move, and I can’t even begin to think about finding a new dentist. Especially one that can live up to the standard Dr. Couret and his team have set.”
