Dental Phobia

If you suffer from dental phobia, you are not alone!  Nearly 75% of the population suffers from mild to extreme fear of dental treatment.

Dental phobia is a term for people who have fear of dental treatment for various reasons.  These people suffer more than fear; they suffer deterioration of oral health through neglecting dental care.  Their fear keeps them away from the dentist office and the neglect of dental care usually leads to severe dental problems.  If they have an extreme dental emergency and have to go through extensive treatment, the cycle of fear simply gets worse.

The causes of this fear can vary from a previously bad experience, fear of invasive procedures, gagging reflex, sounds of dental instruments and even an indirect association to dental care such as stories from other people with bad dental experiences.  Regardless of the reason of someone’s fear of the dentist or dental care, the only important matter is to stop the cycle of fear and begin a regimen of good dental care.

There’s no longer a need for fear when you have a caring dentist and the option for non-invasive sedation dentistry.
