Dental Anxiety Treatment
Dental Anxiety Treatment Options for You
Do you have a dental problem, but you are scared to visit a dentist? You’re not alone!
Fear of visiting a dentist, aka dental anxiety, is a common condition that gives rise to many dental problems in the future. Around 40 million Americans are at the risk of developing serious dental issues just because they feel anxious about visiting a dentist, as reported by the Columbia University College of Dental Medicine.
What causes of dental anxiety?
There can be many underlying reasons behind those fears, but most people relate with these:
- Fear of the drill
- Fear of blood and pain
- Fear of helplessness and loss of control
- Negative experiences in the past
- The embarrassment caused by self-consciousness during the dental examination
The consequences of avoiding regular dentist visits due to dental anxiety are enormous! Not only may it lead to serious dental complications (making it costly and painful down the road), but it may also affect your general health and your self-esteem. Even worse – neglecting dental anxiety management may also put you into a never-returning boat of fury causing only more trouble for your dental health in future.
