The agoraphobic dental patient: report of case



The agoraphobic dental patient: report of case



Journal of the American Dental Association 109(1): 53-56



Agoraphobia is considered to be the most common, yet distressing, phobia for adult phobic patients. Little has been written concerning the identification, problems, and treatment of dental disease in the agoraphobic patient. After a review of the clinical features, epidemiology, causes, and medical treatment of the syndrome, a case study is presented, showing how dental treatment can be a valuable part of the behavioral treatment of this patient.
