Did you know that May is designated by health professionals as Mental Health Month? To help raise awareness about mental health, your sedation dentist, Dr. Aziza Askari and our team at Comfort Dental Spa discusses anxiety disorders and dental phobias. If you’re uneasy about visiting the dentist, be sure to read on to learn how Dr. Askari can help you.
The most common type of mental health disorder in the United States is anxiety disorders. An anxiety disorder is an umbrella term for other mental health issues such as panic disorder, specific phobia disorder, post traumatic stress syndrome, and obsessive compulsive disorder. Symptoms of anxiety disorders often include panic attacks, intense fears of certain situations or objects, and persistent feelings of nervousness.
Intense fears of visiting the dentist or receiving dental care are considered a type of anxiety disorder called specific phobias. Patients with intense fears of the dentist often avoid visiting the dentist because of their anxiety. Fortunately, Dr. Askari understands the debilitating fears that accompany dental phobias. In fact, Dr. Askari is a trained sedation dentist.
