09 Feb Dental Anxiety
Dental anxiety or fear of the dentist is very common. People with dental anxiety generally avoid the Dentist which causes dental disease to spiral out of control; eventually affecting a person’s general health.
Dealing with dental anxiety begins with communicating your fears to your dental provider. From there, recommendations can be made to help ease the anxiety. Nitrous oxide is a gas which helps to alleviate anxiety. There are other stronger medications which can be prescribed after discussion with your dentist.
