Dental Anxiety in Valrico: Who’s Afraid Of The Big, Bad…Dentist?

dental anxiety in valrico

People that experience dental anxiety in Valrico may take comfort in the fact that it is fairly common among patients. Know that you are not alone and that the medical community takes it seriously.

Phobias like Pteromerhanophobia: (the fear of flying) and Acrophobibia (the fear of heights) can be problematic, but a person can live a perfectly healthy life without getting on an airplane or riding an elevator to the top of the Chrysler Building.

Dealing with Dental Anxiety in Valrico

A person who suffers from dental anxiety in Valrico is at risk of falling into a vicious cycle of declining oral health.

Fear often causes patients to avoid dental checkups for years. When a minor dental issue (like a small cavity) proceeds until it hits a nerve and results in pain, the patient is forced to visit the dentist.

At this point, the necessary treatment is an involved procedure possibly an extraction followed by a dental implant. The procedure reinforces the dental anxiety and, once again, the patient stays away from the dentist’s office. That’s how some people end up losing teeth at a relatively young age.
