CORNELIA, GA, June 15, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Making regular visits to the dentist is a significant part of ensuring good oral health. Studies have shown that people who see a dentist at least twice a year are less likely to develop serious tooth decay or gum disease than those who rarely visit the dentist. Although it's no secret that both adults and children should be making regular visits to the dentist, some people still avoid the dental exam chair out of fear for what will happen when they are in it.
Dentophobia, or a fear of dentists, is a condition impacting a significant number of American lives. For those affected, even a routine examination can be incredibly stressful. Many people with dentophobia have admitted that intense fear and anxiety is keeping them from visiting a dentist regularly. For dental health practitioners, this is especially alarming; people who do not see a dentist at least twice a year are usually the ones who typically need professional dental care the most.
