Many patients are afraid of medical treatment
It's not uncommon for people to react anxiously when medical treatment is due. Both children and adults often experience physical symptoms such as trembling hands and legs, nausea and vomiting, sweating or even a rapid heartbeat or a panic attack. The fear of dental treatment is very common. In the meantime, some dentists have specialized in anxiety patients.
