As Much as 15% of the Population Avoids the Dentist due to Dental Fear or Anxiety
If the thought of going to the dentist makes you feel uncomfortable, you are certainly not alone. With over 40 million people suffering from dental fear or anxiety, we often speak with patients that are nervous about making an appointment. From simple cleanings to complex cases like full arches of dental implants, dental anxiety is often a cause for treatment delay. Drs. Mario Canal and Ben Calem understand the importance of receiving treatment as early as possible to protect the integrity of your smile, and are happy to offer sedation dentistry to help you get the periodontal care you need.
