Even regular checkups or teeth cleanings can cause emotional stress for some patients. Think about it: You’re in a reclining chair, arms at your sides, mouth open, unable to talk and totally vulnerable to what takes place. The hygienist or dentist is in complete control at this point (perhaps that’s the issue). Who wouldn’t feel uncomfortable?
Top Reasons for Dental Phobia
Many people suffer from what’s known as dental phobia, which can be based on fear or anxiety. What’s the difference? Fear is based on events from a prior experience, while anxiety comes from an event yet to be experienced.
The top five reasons for dental anxiety, fear or phobia are:
- Painful experiences
- Unsympathetic dentist or hygienist
- Embarrassment or harassment
- Hearing about others’ fears
- Other existing anxiety disorders
Pain Management Begins Before You Say ‘Ah’
Preparation can go a long way in removing the fear of needed dental work. From fear of injections, X-rays and other dental equipment and procedures, being prepared, when possible, can help alleviate the fear and help you stay on top of your dental health.
One way to achieve this is by using a dental topical anesthetic gel before a trip to the dentist or orthodontist to prevent the discomfort that can come from work done on the teeth and gums.
This can be extremely beneficial to children as well. In fact, we highly recommend it. Dental fear can be avoided in children thanks to dental topical anesthetic gels, created in their favorite flavors, so they associate dental visits with good taste.
