Overcoming Dental Anxiety With Light Sedation
Being a little anxious or even afraid of visiting the dentist is incredibly common in Australia. Some studies have estimated that one in seven Australians are affected by dental fear to some degree. You might know that your fears are irrational, and it's certainly not your dentist's fault—they're doing their utmost to help you preserve your teeth. But you may not be able to get over your anxiety about sitting in the dental chair with a bright light shining in your face and your mouth wide open.
