Dental Anxiety and Phobia

Scientists now recognize that most patients experience generalized dental anxiety. In fact, recent studies show that up to 75% of Americans experience some level of dentist fear and 20% postpone or avoid care because of this. If you have a fear of dentists, we want you to know that making you feel comfortable and safe at our office is our top priority.

Fear of Dentist – Causes and Remedies

Some individuals fear of dentistry extends beyond the dentist and even include:

  • Routine Teeth Cleaning
  • Pain
  • Anxious about the procedures to be performed
  • The cost of the treatments
  • The expectation of discomfort, awkwardness or loss of feeling during the procedure
  • Being susceptible to lower back pain or kinks in the neck
  • Becoming uncomfortable with the sound, feel or smell of having their teeth worked on
  • Embarrassment about your teeth
