Do people really have toothbrush phobias? I have heard that people may have a fear to brush because of different reasons....what are they? Or have you heard any?
Sorry, but I have not heard from anyone personally having a fear of brushing. Probably because if they did have a phobia, they wouldn't come to the dentist either. Let's hope everyone is brushing.
