Dental anxiety is the fear of going to the dentist. If you suffer from dental anxiety, most likely it was developed during your childhood years. Feeling embarrassed, fear of the unknown, fear of pain and loss of control are the most common causes for dental anxiety.
Why Many People Suffer from Dental Anxiety
The first and most popular reason for dental anxiety is the fear of pain. No one wants to have a painful experience. Many times childhood experiences of dental treatment, when modern day pain-relieving solutions were not available, leave a person with a memory that translates to a bad experience.
A secondary reason for dental anxiety is embarrassment. The perception of your dentist becoming judgmental about the condition of your teeth may cause you the anxiety of believing you will hear negative comments about your teeth from your dentist.
Fear of the unknown is common in almost any circumstance and can be one of the common reasons to fear going to the dentist.
Sitting in a dental chair with a doctor examining the oral cavity can also make a person very uncomfortable, giving them a feeling of loss of control.
If you can identify with any of these feeling, most likely you suffer from dental anxiety.
