Headaches, body aches, numbness, and a whole bunch of other physiological manifestations seem to appear just before a dentist appointment. I have heard of people sweating profusely until they were embarrassed and just walked out of the office.
I think many of these symptoms could be easily overcome by understanding the dental procedures and talking with your dentist. It is just human nature to worry about the unknown. There are a few good dental information sites that might help you get familiar with the dental terms and the procedures used. If you live on the West Coast, search CaliforniaDentalInsurance.com then look on the left side of the page. They offer some tips that may help.
In addition, I would search the Dental Opinions blog as there is a ton of information on dentistry. Keep me posted on what you find…
