How does dental anxiety develop?
Many anxiety patients describe traumatic dental experiences from childhood when it comes to the subject of dental anxiety. When asked: "Why are you afraid, what happened?", I usually hear that the patients were treated unnecessarily against their will. Or they felt they were at the mercy of the situation or the dentist.
This goes so far that many only go to the dentist when the pain has already become almost unbearable. Therefore, in addition to the treatment of anxiety patients, we are also very concerned about the gentle treatment of our young patients. (See First visit to the dentist child).
How do we help you overcome your fear ?
Many patients with dental anxiety describe traumatic dental experiences from their childhood when it comes to dental anxiety. This goes so far that many only go to the dentist when the pain has already become almost unbearable. I always try to teach my patients that this pain and this fear do not have to be necessary. Nothing is done against their will and everything is done only after consultation and, above all, inquiry. Thus, the patient never has the feeling of losing control. As already described in the video, it only takes a little training to make the often panic behavior patterns gradually disappear.
