How Today’s Dental Can Help with Dental Anxiety.

Most people understand the importance of seeing a dentist regularly to maintain proper oral health. Why then, does at least one-third of the US population avoid seeing the dentist? It’s due to dental anxiety. If you fear going to the dentist, you are not alone. Kids and adults are susceptible to dental anxiety, which can keep them from getting the dental care they need.

What Is Dental

What is Dental Anxiety?

The term “dental anxiety” refers to the feelings of fear, stress, and anxiety that are associated with the dental office, the dentist, or anything related to dentistry. The source of this fear can be a number of things. It can come from previous bad experiences at the dentist, such as cracked or chipped teeth. It can come from a history of bad teeth that have needed treatment. It can come from scary stories that other people tell about their experience at the dentist’s office. For adults, dental anxiety can easily arise from the high costs of dental treatments, especially if they don’t have dental insurance. Here are a few other things that people may fear when they go to the dentist:

  • Pain associated with dental treatments
  • Getting a shot of anesthesia inside your mouth
  • The sound of the drill during cavity treatments
  • Chemical smells that people associate with the dentist’s office
  • Needing to open your mouth for a long period of time
  • Sitting a long time in the dentist’s chair
  • Getting the bill at the end of the appointment

What are the Effects of Dental Anxiety?

The effects of dental anxiety can be widespread. It can create a dental phobia, which results in people not getting the dental treatment they need. People with dental anxiety tend to avoid scheduling regular appointments or canceling their scheduled appointments. They only seek dental care when they are in pain, which usually means they will need extensive dental care that may be invasive. In other words, they end up going to the dentist to get the services that they fear the most. This cycle of fear and anxiety leads to poor dental health.

How We Help Patients with Dental Anxiety

Take a closer look at some of the best ways you can confront your anxiety when it’s time to go to the dentist:

  • See a dentist who understands dental anxiety and knows how to help you through it.
  • Schedule a consultation with the dentist prior to your first appointment, so you can talk about it.
  • Get sedation for longer treatments.
  • Discuss payment options before the treatment, so you know how you are going to pay the bill.
  • Allow yourself to be distracted during the appointment, so you are not so focused on what is happening inside your mouth.
