What is a phobia and how can it be conquered?

Phobia: a marked and persistent fear of a clearly defined object or situation.


In  this case, dental phobia is the fear of dentistry and of receiving dental care. People may go through great lengths to avoid being confronted by their fears or phobias. It may be similar to post-traumatic stress caused by previous traumatic dental experiences.

Sedation dentistry is a perfect start for facing your fears!

  • It RELAXES you
  • It helps you OVERCOME anxiety
  • It makes dental procedures SAFER
  • It FACILITATES effective dental treatment
  • It COMBINES multiple procedures into fewer visits
