Dental fear, also known as dental phobia is when a patient has a fear of going to the dentist. But most often it isn’t the dentist patients are afraid of, but the situation, the dentist’s tools and the risk of pain during treatment.
You are not alone. Around half of all adults experience discomfort before dentist appointments.
The fear has different reasons.
Some have had bad experiences that are in their memory. Others are more vulnerable to anxiety and pain.
