Anxiety is an emotion characterized by feelings of tension, worried thoughts or physical changes. Dental anxiety is a term used to describe the feeling of fear or apprehension towards dental care and treatments. It’s normal for anyone to feel anxious about dental procedures – we generally see two types of anxiety; trait anxiety or situational anxiety. With trait anxiety, the patient experiences stress even though there are no specific reasons for it. Situational anxiety is a type of anxiety that occurs during unfamiliar situations or events that make us so nervous that we lose control of our ability to stay calm. Both of which are incredibly common and frequently experienced in dentistry.
People with dental anxiety may experience one or more of the symptoms below :
The reasons for having anxiety could be a fear of needles, previous bad experiences, unsure of what to expect, the fear of pain or the frequency of your visits to the dentist. It’s not related to your age, your gender, the number of teeth missing or the reason for your dental visit. It is vital that your dentist tries to alleviate your stress at the earliest opportunity. This will calm the situation and allow you to communicate with them in a more relaxed manner. It is advised that your dentist is made aware of any psychological and physiological problems prior to treatment.
