Causes of Dental Anxiety
Plenty of causes can cause Dental anxiety such as
Prior Experiences: Most people affected by Dental Anxiety tend to complain about horrifying experiences from a certain Dentist which includes the psychological aspects (such as humiliation or mocking) apart from the actual physical pain involved.
The immediate surroundings: If you are a Dental Phobic, it’s highly likely that your children will also pick that up. Our perception of most things is based on how the people close to us feel about it. Hence, another major reason for Dental anxiety is by picking it up from the people around us.
Bad experience of others: Your best friend got a root canal done and just hearing the stress and pain she had to undergo makes you cry .Stories circulate easily how a certain “X’ said that RCT is so painful that he would rather die than get a root canal done.
Embarrassment: You feel your teeth are the worst in the world and know for sure the dentist is really gonna give it to you when he sees your teeth. People tend to be embarrassed on their condition and not willing to open up on the issue-even to their dentist.
Uncaring Dentist: A really uncaring dentist can put most people off and instill hate for the dentist and dental care. Some dentist seem to quite uncaring by mocking the patient on their state or even humiliating them by sarcastic remarks.
Lack of Control: Some people cannot be put in the dentist chair simply due to the lack of control they have. They do not appreciate the dentists control over them instructing them what to do, putting weird things in their mouth etc.
