Dental phobia is a serious condition that impacts an unknown number of adults in the United States. Marked by anxiety or fear relating to dental care, this type of phobia can result in serious oral health issues including gum disease and tooth loss. Oral health problems like gum disease may pose systemic health problems as well, increasing risks for heart attack and stroke, kidney and liver failure, pancreatic and breast cancers, and dementia.
