What is dental anxiety?

Dental anxiety is a psychological condition characterized by significant fear or anxiety related to visiting the dentist or receiving dental care. It is a common issue that affects people of all ages. The thought of sitting in a dentist's chair can trigger fear and discomfort, often causing individuals to avoid necessary dental care.

Understanding Dental Anxiety

  • Fear of Pain: One of the most common reasons people fear the dentist is the anticipation of pain. Past traumatic experiences or stories from others can contribute to this fear.
  • Fear of Needles: Dental procedures often involve injections, and a fear of needles can exacerbate dental anxiety.
  • Embarrassment: Feeling self-conscious about the condition of one's teeth or breath can lead to anxiety about dental visits.
  • Negative Past Experiences: Previous unpleasant experiences at the dentist can create lasting dental anxiety, including negative experiences as a child. 

However, with holistic dentistry and pain-free methods such as laser dentistry,  it's easier than ever to overcome dental anxiety. Holistic dentists focus on natural dentistry, avoiding harmful chemicals and toxins that can harm the body. They actively engage with patients to address their concerns, thereby establishing effective communication that helps alleviate dental anxiety.
