Dental Phobia: What, Why and How
- Fear of Dental Instruments — For some, just the sight of dental instruments is worse than watching a horror movie all alone. First things first, keep your eyes shut. Just relax, sit back, take a deep breath and trust your dentist. They charge you money to provide you the best dental treatment. Your comfort is their priority. They won’t harm you by any chance.
- Self-Consciousness — You might be worrying too much about how your mouth might smell, how crooked your teeth might look, what if your tongue looks too ugly and so on. It doesn’t matter at all. Your dentist is probably the only person on earth who would happily accept you with your worse mouth conditions. They are trained to do that.
- Algophobia — It is a condition where the fear of pain is much more overpowering when compared to normal people. In this case, taking anti-anxiety pills a night before the dentist’s appointment is advisable. Apart from this, avoid anticipating too much about what is going to happen. Meditate. It will help.
