It is one thing to lose sleep over a dental appointment the night before, but it’s another to put off dental work for years because of dental phobia. Dental phobia differs from dental anxiety because those who suffer from dental anxiety usually make it to the office. People develop a dental phobia for a variety of different reasons such as a traumatic dental experience in the past. Dr. Christopher Emuedue of Greenville Family Dentistry encourages patients with a fear of the dentist to schedule a consultation to talk through these fears and determine a resolution.
People who suffer from a dental phobia may suffer from poor oral health as a result. Poor oral health can result in tooth loss if certain conditions such as periodontal disease, are left untreated. There are different levels of fear that a person may experience, and Dr. Christopher Emuedue is here for his patients every step of the way. We also offer different types of sedation options to meet your needs and ease your fears.
If you have questions or concerns regarding sedation dentistry or dental phobia, please give us a call.
