Dental Anxiety vs Dental Phobia

Dental anxiety is a common fear or apprehension experienced before or during dental visits, often due to past negative experiences or fear of pain. It may cause discomfort but typically does not prevent individuals from seeking dental care when necessary. Never the less, dental anxiety can cause significant stress and can even lower your quality of life(2). It also all but guarantees an unplesent trip to the dentist! Treatment for dental anxiety can help turn trips to the dentist from something you avoid into a positive self-care experience.

Dental phobia is an intense, irrational fear that leads to avoidance of dental visits altogether, often resulting in severe consequences for oral health. Phobia involves a heightened level of fear that significantly impacts daily life and requires professional intervention to address. Our experts can treat  phobias at the root cause and enable you to take back control of your life.
