Dental Anxiety and Dental Phobia: What is it and how to address it!

Overcoming Dental Anxiety (Dental Fear). If you experience dental anxiety, you’re certainly not alone. Defined as a feeling of fear or unease that people experience when they are about to undergo dental procedures, dental anxiety can range from mild to severe, and in some cases, it can be debilitating. Our Top Rated Doctors at ProCare Family Dental can help you address Dental Anxiety  to make your visits calm and worry-free. 

 

Understanding Dental Anxiety and Dental Phobia (Fear).

Dental anxiety is a type of phobia that affects people of all ages. It is estimated that up to one out of six American adults experience dental anxiety to some degree, which can make it difficult for people to undergo routine dental procedures, such as cleanings or fillings. In some cases, people may avoid dental appointments altogether, which can lead to serious dental problems down the road.

What causes dental anxiety?

  • Previous negative dental experience
  • Fear of pain or discomfort
  • Fear of needles or injections
  • Fear of losing control
  • Fear of the unknown
  • The sound and smell of dental instruments

   Serious Dental Problems can occur when people avoid the Dentist. 

People with Dental Problems

Let Us Help You Overcome Dental Fear in Morton Grove.

There are several ways to address dental anxiety to ensure your trip to the dentist is a calm and stress-free occasion:

1. Talk to Your Dentist

At ProCare Family Dental, our Doctors understand not all patients love to visit us – don’t worry, we don’t take it personally! So, one of the most effective ways to address dental anxiety is to talk to your dentist. Let them know how you are feeling up front and they can work with you to develop a plan that addresses your concerns and helps you feel more comfortable during dental procedures. Your dentist can also provide you with information about the procedures you will undergo, which can help reduce your anxiety.

2. Practice Relaxation Techniques

Relaxation techniques, such as deep breathing, meditation, and visualisation can help reduce generalised anxiety including dental anxiety. Try practicing these techniques before and during your dental appointment to help you stay calm and relaxed, even during procedures that may cause some discomfort.

3. Use Distraction Techniques

Distraction techniques can help take your mind off the dental procedure and reduce your anxiety. Here at ProCare Family Dental we offer you the ability to listen to music or a podcast, or to watch  TV shows. You can also bring a stress ball or fidget toy to help keep your hands (and mind) busy.

4. Consider Sedation Support

If you require additional support to get on top of your anxiety, ProCare Family Dental in Morton Grove, offers a range of medications and methods to help patients relax during dental procedures. including  oral sedation. Talk to our dentists about whether sedation dentistry is a good option for you.

It is worth noting that the earlier the dental issue is dealt with, the easier the problem is to rectify. These good experiences help build confidence and trust and help you to avoid lengthier and more complex treatment plans.
