Anxiety and The Dentist

Not many people look forward to going to the dentist…  Some even have major anxiety that is preventing them from receiving the dental care, such as regular dental cleanings, that they need. Holding off on dental care could have major consequences on your overall health and can go way beyond tooth pain or even losing teeth. Neglecting your dental health can lead to gum disease. Also known as periodontal disease, gum disease, can cause a dangerous infection that can affect other parts of your body. Many studies suggest a link to heart disease, stroke, and diabetes.
