Are You Scared of the Dentist?
Dental Anxiety is a common occurrence, and many people throughout the world feel anxious about seeing a dentist. If you have dental phobia you will most likely delay or put off going to the dentist for several years unless you’re forced to do so.
There are many causes of dental fear and anxiety about seeing a dentist. One of the strong predictors of dental anxiety is a negative dental experience. People who have had an embarrassing and/or painful experience in the past tend to become avoidant of going to a dental office in the future, while fear of injections, anesthetic effects, and pain are some of the main causes of dental phobia.
To overcome anxiety or fear of the dentist, we recommend discussing your fears and anxieties with us. Here at Dr. Alaby and Associates, we prioritize our patients’ feelings, and we ensure that they are comfortable with our services and dental experts.
If your dentist knows what your anxieties and fears are, as well as what causes them, your dentist can plan actions that can help decrease your anxieties and fears.
Relaxation techniques, distraction, use of sedatives and making sure that your environment feels comfortable are some of the best ways to help relieve dental anxiety and phobia.
