People with severe dental anxiety are more likely to be dissatisfied with their appearance, which may lead to poorer oral health, depression and further anxiety, according to a doctoral thesis presented May 29 at the University of Gothenburg in Gothenburg, Sweden. "People with severe dental anxiety are often trapped in a vicious cycle that begins with avoidance of dental care," stated thesis author Dr. Viktor Carlsson in a university news article.
