You Can Conquer Your Dental Fear

...And Maybe Even Enjoy Your Dental Visits

by Dr. Ronald Linden

Book Image Not Available
Overview
Frightened dental patients many times cannot seek help. Their dental pain can be unbearable, but may not be as great as their psychic pain. These patients many times don't know where to turn. They may respond to an advertisement that a dentist “caters to cowards” or otherwise welcomes the frightened patient. They may feel forced to finally see a dentist for treatment. Traumatized patients may find a dental clinic, possibly affiliated with a hospital or dental school, which treats such problems. Sometimes, these patients are looking for just a sympathetic ear or advice on what they can do themselves. This book is an attempt to reveal how a patient with severe anxiety can come back into the dental fold. No one wants to feel frightened about coming to a dental office. One just may not know how to deal with the present anxiety. Whether dental fears come from a traumatic dental experience or from a conversion fear - a fear from something totally unrelated to a bad past dental trauma - anyone can learn strategies to help live a life of excellent dental health, a life free from dental pain, and have a smile that feels great inside and out.
