Dental anxiety is defined as a fear of visiting the dentist or feeling nervous, worried, or uneasy about visiting the dentist. Dental health varies dramatically from person to person, whether due to genetics or behavior. Some people can go years between dentist visits with little or no impact on their teeth or gums, while others are prone to decay and gum disease no matter how frequently they brush and floss.
