Treating Dental Anxiety
Dental anxiety is an intense fear of the dentist. It could be caused by a past negative experience at a dental office, a fear of loss of control, fear of pain, or embarrassment about dental treatment. Dental anxiety often causes patients to go without the dental care they need until they’re experiencing a dental emergency.
