It is Common: for a slight increase of bp when you come to the dentist (we don't mean to but we seem to have that affect on people). We have guidelines that allow for that and it is rare that it keeps us from being able to treat you. There are times/procedures that we must either sedate or refer you for treatment or get your bp in range to complete the procedure safely but worrying will not help it be better!
