Causes of dental anxiety

  • Fear of pain or discomfort during dental procedures
  • Negative past experiences at the dentist
  • Feelings of loss of control or vulnerability in the dental chair
  • Generalized anxiety or phobias related to medical settings

How to overcome dental anxiety?

  • Communicate openly with your dentist about your fears and concerns
  • Consider sedation options such as nitrous oxide (laughing gas), oral sedation, or anesthesia to help you relax during dental procedures
  • Practice relaxation techniques, like deep breathing or visualization, to calm your nerves before and during dental visits
  • Gradually expose yourself to dental environments and procedures to desensitize yourself to the experience over time
