Everybody experiences fear at some stage in their lives but unfortunately a large proportion of the population have had traumatic experiences as children during dental treatment while others have had unpleasant experiences as adults. When you have these fears then avoidance of dental treatment is a perfectly reasonable response! Our experience is that even when faced with the warning signs of pain and swelling these patients still steer clear of the dentist. These patients have a choice of living with the uncomfortable symptoms of fear with a decrease in quality of life or taking control and searching for a solution.
