When Going to the Dentist is Hard

For some, going to the dentist is a routine. They have been going to the dentist since they were a child and they look forward to the fresh, clean feeling after their cleaning appointment. However, there are some that would rather do anything else than go to the dentist.

What is Dentophobia?  

Those that dread going to the dentist, usually have a pretty good reason for it. The reasons why some avoid their annual cleanings include:

  • Extreme oral sensitivity or pain
  • A bad experience
  • Dentophobia (fear of going to the dentist)

No matter what your reservations about going to the dentist are, your feelings are valid and there are solutions that our dentist can offer you so you can enjoy pristine oral health.

Are You Afraid of the Dentist?

Being afraid of the dentist is quite common. According to a Colgate article, 30-40 million people have anxiety about going to the dentist; that means that 15 percent of Americans dread going to the dentist.

Common Signs of Dentophobia

  • Unable to sleep the night before a dental appointment
  • Experience extreme anxiety in the waiting room
  • Feel physically ill
  • Seeing dental instruments trigger anxiety
  • Difficulty breathing during a dental appointment
