If you tense up just thinking about going to the dentist, you may benefit from sedation dentistry offered by Karen E. Williamson DDS PA in Rockwall.
Millions of Americans stress out because they have to see the dentist. It is referred to as dental anxiety. There is a more severe form, too, called dental phobia. In both, some people would rather skip the dentist altogether than sit down for a checkup.
That sounds reasonable enough: if there is something that bothers you, avoid it. The problem with with skipping the dentist is that it puts your dental health at risk.
There are lots of reasons why people develop anxiety or phobia over dental care. It often stems from a bad experience they had with a dentist as a kid. Fear of pain is often involved, as well as a fear of anesthesics and possible side effects.
Whatever the cause, sedation dentistry has helped millions of people get through their appointments.
