Easing Dental Fear in Adults
Nightmare On Dentist’s Chair
When it comes to dentist, do you start shaking? Do you fear going to the dentist? Be sure you are not alone. A lot of people avoid going to the dentist because of anxiety or fear. Indeed, it is a universal phenomenon and there are millions of people who share this nightmare.
If you are one of these anxious people, we have a good news for you: You will leave all your fears here in Dentalprof. We have a plenty of collection of fears, and our patients who left them here, never want them back, even they visit us over and over again.
Let’s take a brief look at this fear and it’s causes.
Dental phobia is a more serious condition than anxiety. It leaves people panic-stricken and terrified. People with dental phobia have an awareness that the fear is totally irrational, but are unable to do much about it. They do everything possible to avoid going to the dentist. They usually go to the dentist only when forced to do so by extreme pain. Pathologic anxiety or phobia may require psychiatric consultation in some cases.
Other signs of dental phobia include:
- Can’t sleep well the night before the dental exam
- Feelings of nervousness that escalate while in the dental office waiting room
- Crying or feeling physically ill at the very thought of visiting the dentist
- Intense discomfort at the thought of, or actually when, objects are placed in your mouth during the dental treatment or suddenly feeling like it is difficult to breathe.
Fortunately, there are ways to get people with dental anxiety and dental phobia to the dentist.
So, what causes dental phobia and anxiety? Well, there are many reasons why some people have dental phobia and anxiety. Some of the common reasons include:
Fear of pain. Fear of pain is a very common reason for avoiding the dentist. This fear usually stems from an early dental experience that was unpleasant or painful or from dental "pain and horror" stories told by others. Thanks to the many advances in dentistry made over the years, most of today's dental procedures are considerably less painful or even pain-free. Here in Dentalprof, there is NO PAIN.
Fear of injections or fear the injection won't work. Many people are terrified of needles, especially when inserted into their mouth. Beyond this fear, others fear that the anesthesia hasn't yet taken effect or wasn't a large enough dose to eliminate any pain before the dental procedure begins.
Fear of anesthetic side effects. Some people fear the potential side effects of anesthesia such as dizziness, feeling faint, or nausea.
Feelings of helplessness and loss of control. It's common for people to feel these emotions considering the situation -- sitting in a dental chair with your mouth wide open, unable to see what's going on.
Embarrassment and loss of personal space. Many people feel uncomfortable about the physical closeness of the dentist or hygienist to their face. Others may feel self-conscious about the appearance of their teeth or possible mouth odors.
