Dental Phobia

Do You Have a Dental Phobia?

The bad thing about dental phobia is that it prevents people from seeking the care they need—when they need it. The good thing about it is that, today, we can treat fear as successfully as we treat tooth decay or crooked teeth.

 

Over six million people experience some degree of anxiety when they visit the dentist. Two million dental patients are just plain scared, so scared that they suffer shaking, confusion, heart palpitations and changes in speech and blood pressure just thinking about dental treatment.

 

Thanks to many dedicated researchers, we’ve learned a lot about what causes fear. And we’ve got the antidotes. Finally, despite what your Aunt Fanny may have told you, dentistry is just not the same as it used to be. And we can prove it.
