If you feel anxious about visiting the dentist, there is no need to be ashamed or try to hide your concerns from Dr. Anthony Foster and our team. We understand that as many as 75% of adults in the US experience anxiety over receiving dental care. Fear of the dentist is normal, and there are many symptoms to help you determine if it is affecting your ability to receive dental care.
You may struggle with dental fear if you:
- Feel nervous in the dentist’s waiting room (eg, bouncing your leg up and down)
- Clench your teeth when you enter the dental office
- Have difficulty sleeping the night before an appointment
- Struggle to breathe while dental tools are in your mouth
If you experience one or more of these symptoms, we encourage you to speak with our caring dental team. We will help you identify the source of your fear, whether it is fear of pain, needles, proximity, judgment, or losing control. Once we understand the source of your dental fear, we can work with you to create a solution and customize your dental experience so that you will not feel uncomfortable in our office.
