Dental Anxiety Is Common—Boger Can Help
Many people experience dental anxiety, and sedation dentistry Plymouth can help. In fact, dental fear is the number one reason people avoid the dentist. It’s estimated that as many as 75% of US adults experience some kind of dental fear, from mild to severe.
A person with extreme dental phobia may never see the dentist. Others may force themselves to go, but they’re anxious before and during their visit.
People who fear the dentist often fall into a “cycle of avoidance.” They avoid care until they experience a dental emergency, sometimes requiring invasive treatment that causes an even higher level of anxiety.
This reinforces their fear of dentistry. It doesn’t have to be this way! New treatment options are available for people who experience any level of dental anxiety.
