Is fear of the dentist ruining your smile?
Are you petrified of the dentist? Do you feel sick, experience palpitations or sweaty palms at just the thought of dental treatment? Have you ever missed a dental appointment because of uncontrollable fear? Or do you attend appointments but feel anxious the entire time? If so, you are not alone.
According to recent figures published by the Adult dental health survey, over a third of adults (36 percent) were classified as having moderate dental anxiety, with 12 percent of adults classified as having extreme dental anxiety.
So, how do you defeat the fear of the dentist? How can you overcome the anxiety many people feel when visiting the dentist, or the irrational fear experienced by the dental phobic?
