    Do You Suffer From Fear of the Dentist?

    teeth health smile dentalIf you dread a visit to the dentist, you’re certainly not alone. It is estimated that one in four people are fearful about dental work.

    Key takeaways:

    • Some people have serious dental problems,including severe pain, because they are afraid of dentistry.
    • Today’s dentists are trained to provide stress-free, pain-free dental treatments, using new technology and techniques. They can provide gentle sedation, if necessary, to keep patients comfortable.
    • There’s nothing more to fear, and every reason to get the dental treatment you need. Your dental health affects your overall health, including heart health. And, no one should live with dental pain.
    • Often, simply booking an early morning appointment will help combat the phobia – as you have less time to think about the visit. Also, meeting the dental team helps provide comfort. Talk to the dental team, and share your fears. They will be very helpful in overcoming the phobia, and very encouraging.

    Some people have such bad dental phobia that they haven’t seen a dentist for years. It’s common to hear from someone in their twenties or thirties or even older who hasn’t been to the dentist since childhood.
