Getting Over Your Fear of the Dentist
Being a little nervous prior to a dental appointment is actually quite common. In fact, some studies have shown that up to 75% of all people have these feelings. However, for 10-15% of those surveyed, this nervousness grows into a great deal of fear. Fear so bad that it prevents them from having any dental treatment. As result, these individuals often suffer from unnecessary infections, toothaches, and a poor appearance due to tooth decay.
