Fear of the dentist affects one in four, but there are ways to help you control your anxiety
A survey by the British Dental Association found that 25% of people were afraid of visiting the dentist.Fear of the unknown
As with any type of anxiety, there are varying degrees of fear of the dentist. The most common, and least severe, is simply a fear of the unknown. This may arise if you’ve heard horror stories from other people or you're worried about what could happen.Dental fear
The next level of fear is dental fear, which is a reaction to a known danger. For example, you may have had a tooth removed and experienced some pain. As a result, you may worry about experiencing it again.Dental phobia
Dental phobia is similar to dental fear but is more severe. It's often the result of a bad past experience. For some people, dental phobia can be so crippling that simply seeing a toothpaste advert or a dental surgery can cause distress.Visiting the dentist when you have a phobia
If you need dental treatment or want to register at a dental surgery, the first thing to do is find a suitable dentist who can help with your phobia. Here at the dental suite, we have extensive experience in dealing with dental phobic patients.
Once you're at the surgery, your dentist will take a history to find out why you're frightened. They will work out what needs to be done and explain this carefully. We aim to be sympathetic and prepared to spend time explaining things to you and making you feel at ease.Family
