Women and the Fear of Dental Treatments

Women and the Fear of Dental TreatmentsStudies that have recently been carried out by Sydney University have made some startling revelations.  Women in specific age groups have the highest chance of experiencing fears and phobias over dental treatments, and will ignore tooth pain and other abnormalities as a result.  This is why our Los Angeles dentist believes that all patients should understand the primary causes of dental phobias, and the steps that we can take to make every single visit to our practice as comfortable and pain-free as possible.

While dental phobias can begin to manifest themselves in patients of all ages, these studies have shown that women between 40 and 50 years of age are at the highest risk of neglecting their oral health due to an overwhelming fear of dental treatments.  Some of the leading causes of these fears include misconceptions from the media, family, and friends as well as negative experiences in the past.

In order to get locals back into the dentist’s chair we are dedicated to utilizing only the most advanced treatment options for all of our patients‘ needs.  This includes offering some of the most effective sedation dentistry services that will immediately put patients at ease and reduce the chances that they will have any discomfort throughout their appointment.

If it has been six months since your last dental checkup or you have recently noticed any discomfort within your mouth, give our friendly staff a call today.  We are ready to help you begin enjoying a flawless and beautiful smile with pain-free dental treatments.
