DENTAL ANXIETY AND DENTAL PHOBIA

Dental appointments are often scorned upon due to the suspected anticipation of pain. But dental appointments are far from painful. People can get stressed even as they are examined. Anxiety and phobia towards dental procedures and diagnosis are very common. Most people may go to any extent to avoid that crucial dental appointment. Routine care treatments are often avoided and so do unsightly teeth and periodontal diseases. The patient is willing to live with it rather than rectify it. People experience intense and unreasonable fear due to a specific activity or situation such as a dental examination. Individuals suffering from dental phobia and anxiety are more likely to suffer from periodontal disease and tooth loss. Dental phobia has several causes such as fear of pain, feelings of having no control, a feeling of embarrassment and past negative experiences. Most people have trouble sleeping the previous night of a dental examination.
