Dental fear is a very common concern amongst adults, teens, and young children. According to the American Dental Association, dental anxiety is only second to the cost of treatment as to why adults avoid seeing a dentist. The ADA says that approximately 22% of adults are afraid of the dentist. If dental fear has kept you from the dentist you may have developed oral health issues that you don’t know about and without treatment can become a very serious health implication. Maybe you do know about a condition that you have with your oral hygiene but it hasn’t been enough to motivate you to make an appointment with your dentist. Once symptoms are noticed, it is imperative to see a dentist stop the progression of your condition before it turns into something much worse.
