Have you been avoiding the dental office due to the fear of what might happen? You may be one of the millions of Americans who suffer from dental phobia. Estimates say that 5 to 8 percent of Americans suffer from dental phobia, so you are not alone.

You might be wondering why you have dental phobia. Well, dental phobia can be caused by more than just a terrible experience at a dental office. Research estimates that some dental phobia cases occur from other past traumas that do not relate to the dental office. This could be caused by substance abuse, P.T.S.D. (post traumatic stress disorder), some mood and anxiety disorders and more.
