Dental anxiety is fairly common. Some people may become somewhat nervous about an upcoming dental appointment. Others, however, may experience very real, very intense fear or even a phobia at the prospect of visiting the dentist. You may have had a negative experience at the dentist in the past, or you may feel intimidated by the sounds and smells of a dental office. You may be uncomfortable with someone else placing their hands in your mouth or apprehensive about whether or not your treatment will feel painful.
