Win Your War Against Dental Fear


If you’re like the 45 million Americans who suffer from dental anxiety, just the thought of seeing your dentist can inspire sheer terror. The root cause of dental phobia is variable. For some, it centers on a fear of the unknown. Others associate dentists with stressful or painful experiences from their past. Fear of needles, anesthetic side effects, and strange smells or sounds can all contribute to the problem. Some people are simply predisposed to anxiety in general.

Is It Dental Anxiety or Dentist Phobia?

The terms dental fear, dental phobia and dental anxiety are often used interchangeably to define the range of negative emotional and physical symptoms people experience in reaction to dentistry, but there are important differences that can help determine the best treatment options. Anxiety is a rational fear of the unknown. Those with dental anxiety benefit from finding a dentist who is sensitive to their needs and creates a comforting office environment to reduce stress. Phobias are intense and often irrational fears of specific things or situations. A mild dentist phobia may also be called dental fear. Managing a phobia may require professional intervention.

New Ways to Battle Dental Fear

The effort to improve dental health through managing anxiety has led to the emergence of a new industry. Sedation dentistry focuses on comfortable, pain-free exams and procedures aided by medicines that keep patients in a relaxed or unaware state. Many dentists promote their experience or skills in managing dental anxiety with conscious sedation. Dental spas go a step further by offering relaxing options like massage, reflexology, and various amenities to create a sense of being pampered. For extreme dentist phobia management, general anesthesia may be the best option. In all cases, open communication between dentists and their patients is the best way to tackle anxiety issues.
