Experiencing Dental Fear

Dental fear is one of the most common emotional issues associated with visiting the dentist. This fear often causes people to avoid dental treatments all together, especially if there is no evidence of pain or discomfort. Neglecting to take care of your oral health issues before they become a problem can lead to poor oral hygiene. Moreover, your overall health and wellbeing can suffer. Forgoing proper dental treatment can result in future dental issues, developing into a more serious, painful dental problem. For some people, this state of apprehension often leads to patients avoiding visits, making dental emergencies a necessity for some. In other instances, dental emergencies can happen to those who practice good oral hygiene habits, combined with regular cleanings and exams.  If you or a family member experiences anxiety due to dental treatments or procedures, contact our office right away.
