Fearing the dentist is actually a recognized psychological phobia called odontophobia or dentophoboa. Research estimates that as much as 75 percent of adults experience some degree of anxiety or fear when it comes to dental visits. These fears are usually rooted in scary experiences that we may have had as children. Many times, we don’t even remember the particulars of those experiences as adults. Yet, they linger and can mean a lack of attention to oral hygiene for those most affected.
Dental phobias, if very severe, can be treated through a variety of psychological therapies and having a positive dental experience can go a long way in relieving these feelings of anxiety.
