Dental Fear & Apprehensive Patients—Heal Faster

Posted Oct 14 2008 4:44am

    Research at the University of Illinois has shown that patients, who expected pain, were frightened of the needle or dentists healed faster.  According In these patients, the corticosteroids levels are higher.  The researcher, Dr. Engelhand, believes that short burst of these steroids with acute stress are beneficial toward healing and limiting inflammation.
