Can Music Help Overcome Dental Anxiety?

 
Chapter: Discuss Fears with Your Dentist

Patients can help by discussing their fear of visiting the dentist openly and honestly with their dentist.
 
If not addressed, dental anxiety can lead to unnecessary oral health problems as a result of avoiding the dentist, which in turn can end up leading to much more time spent in the dental chair when treatment is the only option.

 

Regular six-month preventive checkups help detect oral health problems early, acquainting patients with procedures that can help overcome fears of visiting the dentist.
