Posted by Pearl Dental Group

There are approximately 4 million preschoolers who suffer from tooth decay. This is an increase of over 600,000 children in the last ten years.

Reducing Dentophobia With Gentle Dentistry

Posted by Pearl Dental Group

Many people see a dentist reluctantly. However, for some people, the thought of a dental visit is so frightening that they will avoid the dentist for years. This is dentophobia -- a fear of the dentist.

Dentophobia and gentle dentistry are linked, in that when people experience gentle dentistry right from the beginning, the odds of developing dentophobia are rare. Dentophobia is more likely to develop from rough treatment, lack of compassion on the part of the dentist or staff, or inadequate pain management during dental treatments.
