Does the thought of going to visit the dentist make you feel anxious? Do you fear making your next dentist appointment? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. It’s normal to be a little nervous before your appointment, but dental anxiety and fear are more common than people realize.
Some studies have shown that 75% of surveyed people fear going to the dentist. However, there are a much smaller percentage of people who fear it so much that they avoid the dentist completely. People who really fear the dentist and avoid it for years can end up seriously damaging their overall oral hygiene. Untreated oral conditions such as toothaches, infections and poor appearance can cause stress and health complications.
How can you overcome your dental anxiety and fear? Start off by acknowledging that you’re not alone. Take a step back and realize that there are dental treatments available to work with your anxiety and fear. The offices of Kernagis Dental Excellence specialize in diminishing fear and anxiety with comfort, support, and the highest quality care for all of your dentistry needs including: Sedation Dentistry, Family Dentistry, Cosmetic Dentistry and Dental Implants.
