• Dental Anxiety, Fear, and Phobia

    Is dental anxiety, dental fear, and dental phobia essentially the same thing? That's what I want to explain here in more detail, there are some slight differences. 

    Anxiety involves apprehension about a situation, it is not usually about something that is happening, but about something due to happen in the future. For the majority of the population, a visit to the dentist does invoke some feelings of anxiety regarding your upcoming appointment.
