Dental Phobias and anxiety stem from previously negative experiences and scary anecdots learned from family and friends.
Injection is the most frightening process in dentistry. Dental needles have diameter of smaller then 1mm. In order to lessen pain during anesthesia, topical anesthetics should be used. The people who postphone dental treatment because of injection fear, suffer much more painful oral diseases.
As well as injection, dental instruments are also antipathetic. The patients could be relaxed by giving a brief information about these instruments.Also listening music or watching TV makes the people feel comfortable. In case of severe anxiety the patient should seek for professional assistance.
It’s advisable that the children meet the dentist at the age of 3 or 4 in order to have more comfortable further dental visits.
