Kick Dental Anxiety to the Curb with Dr. Price

Home » Blog » Kick Dental Anxiety to the Curb with Dr. Price

Going to the dentist is not typically a popular activity among individuals across the country. While some put it off because they don’t enjoy the experience or taking time out of their busy schedules, many suffer from true dental anxiety and phobia—in fact, more adults deal with this issue than you may expect.

What Is Dental Anxiety and Phobia?

Dental anxiety and phobia are intense fears of dentists and dental procedures. Nausea, sweaty palms, dry mouth, a rapid heart rate, loss of sleep: these symptoms plague individuals who suffer from dental anxiety—often for days leading up to the appointment. It can be so debilitating that those with dental anxiety will do anything possible to avoid the dentist altogether.

A person with a dental anxiety is someone who has unfounded or exaggerated worries about a visit. A person with a dental phobia goes a step further to where they experience panic attacks in the dentist’s office. Individuals who suffer from dental anxiety and phobia can have a higher risk of early tooth loss and gum disease because it prevents them from seeing the dentist regularly.

The Solution: Sedation Dentistry

Sedation dentistry is exactly what the dentist ordered when it comes to people who suffer from dental anxiety and phobia. Sedation dentistry is any dental procedure—performed by a trained sedation dentist—who provides medication to sedate the patient to help them relax. Anxiety and phobia is no longer a part of the equation by utilizing this method of dentistry.
