Dental News: New Therapy for Dental Phobia.

A new therapy could help people with a dental phobia. Fear of visits to the dentist can be overcome by cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) enabling the patient to receive dental treatment without sedation. A new study by King’s College London has published its findings in the British Dental Journal.

It was found that patients with dental phobias typically have poorer dental health and experience more dental pain and discomfort.
