Dental anxiety? We Are Here to Help Put Your Fears to Rest
Dental phobia affects millions of Americans, preventing them from receiving the dental care they need. Dental anxiety is one of the top reasons people put off going to the dentist, even when they are aware of a dental problem. Fear of the dentist is frequently the result of previous bad experiences in the dentist’s chair or a fear of needles. Failing to visit the dentist regularly will result in many different types of dental problems, including tooth loss.
These dental problems will progress and get worse over time. The dental procedures will be more invasive and cost more money to treat. We encourage our patients to discuss with us their fears so that we can help avoid this situation.
