Dr Nigel Carter, chief executive of the British Dental Health Foundation told the publication that patients anxious of the dentist are, in theory, likely to have poorer oral health than those who get regular check-ups.

Carter said that this nasal spray could be a very promising addition to any dental practice.

The product has passed phase two clinical trials in the USA and safety trials with the US Food and Drugs Administration could be complete by the end of the summer.

According to the manufacturer, St Renatus LLC, final product approval in the USA could be achieved by next year.
