             Dental Phobia and Fear of
                    The Dentist
Dental phobia affects a large proportion of the population. Many
people are so fearful or anxious about visiting the dentist that as
a result, they let their oral health suffer. Since they avoid visiting
a dentist unless ’pain ‘ sets in, it is observed that they have
problems with their gums and chronic gum disease has set in as a
result of neglect.

It is important to see a dentist regularly so that they can assess
and deal with problems before they worsen and become
irreversible (gum disease), painful (dental abscesses) or
expensive.

With modern dentistry, there are many techniques and methods
to help overcome your anxieties and make your dental
experience comfortable and even enjoyable!
