There are a number of people who suffer from anxiety when it is time to go to the dentist. Do not make the mistake of thinking that these anxious patients are all children. Perhaps you are an adult who finds it very unnerving to go to the dentist. You may even get anxious about dental appointments for your children too.
1. Inform the dentist.
Whether you are the patient or a caretaker of the patient, the dental staff needs to know if anxiety is present.
Many people compartmentalize the way they think about their lives, as well as about their health. So, when diet is discussed, it is typically thought of in relation to the health of the body in general, rather than that of the teeth. But the parts of your body are all interconnected. This means that the health and well-being of one body part often reflects the health of all those to which it is attached.
