Dental anxiety is a common concern for people across the nation, which is why our friendly dentists, Dr. Kafri, and Dr. Jenney with AV Dental Wellness Group in Lancaster, CA, are here to assist you with your concerns.
In a nutshell, dental anxiety or dental phobia is a health condition that can make people feel afraid to get the oral health care treatments they need. As a result, dental anxiety prevents people from visiting the dentist, delaying visits or procedures as much as possible, which leads to painful and costly effects that could have been avoided.
The good news is there are tasks you can do to help with your dental anxiety feelings. The first task involves talking to your dental team about your dental anxiety. Please don’t feel embarrassed because thousands of people feel nervous too. As a result, by telling someone, you are helping the dental team make you feel safer and more comfortable while in treatment, which, in turn, can help you.
