Colleague's dental fears could have killed him
from The Columbus Dispatch
Dr. Diane Gorgas writes, "I think I've heard all the reasons people don't go to a dentist: 'It's too expensive,' 'I'm afraid of needles/drills,' 'It hurts.' I don't want to belittle the problem, but avoiding a dentist is one of the most-illogical decisions in medicine. Tooth pain almost never gets better on its own or goes away without intervention. Complications inevitably lead to worsening decay, generalized inflammation and overall worse health, not to mention an increased risk of heart disease. And let's face it, out-of-control dental decay is far scarier than any visit to a dentist."
