These days dentists and have effective treatments at their disposal for patients who suffer from a dental phobia.
This is the vicious circle of dental phobia: whatever caused the phobia initially (be it painful or traumatic experiences, hurtful remarks, or something else) leads to avoidance, which in turn means no access to professional dental care, usually resulting in poorer oral health, and at some stage the results of this “neglect” are perceived to be so embarrassing that it’s totally impossible to see a dentist, even when in pain. If shame, embarrassment and guilt are keeping you away from seeing a dentist, you’ve got plenty of company!
First of all – it’s highly unlikely that any dentist hasn’t seen teeth which aren’t as bad as or worse than yours.
Dental techniques have improved so much over the last few years, that modern dental treatment can now be completely painless. Despite this, most people still feel a little nervous at the thought of going to the dentist.
If you have not been to see a dentist for some time, you will probably find that things have improved a lot since your last visit. The general attitude is likely to be more relaxed, the dental techniques and safety procedures will be much better, and the equipment will be more up to date.
For example, patients who are afraid of the dental drill, treatments can be carried out by air abrasion at times this is a quieter, less emotionally stress full approach.
Other techniques such as sedation with Nitrous Oxide ( otherwise known as happy gas ), general anasthetic, sedation and numbing gel are also available for patients with anxiety or pain phobias.
