One of the more common fears or anxieties among American adults is, believe it or not, the dentist. Unfortunately, many people have a negative perception of dental visits. Whether this stems from childhood fears of the dentist or just a general unpleasant association, the anxiety around the dentist is unfounded. Zeal Dentistry prides ourselves on making sure our patients are comfortable and have a good understanding of the dental procedures they will undergo. We work hard to provide our patients with an environment in which they can relax.

The term “dental phobia” describes people whose issues with the dentist go past simple nervousness. These are all cases where sedation and anti-anxiety medications can make a world of difference in the dental health of those affected. Of course, there are many causes of the fear associated with the dentist. These include fear of pain, injections, lack of control, or even embarrassment.
