Dental fear

As experience grows, fear diminishes

Dental treatment causes fear in women, in particular. Women are more fearful of dental treatment procedures than men, but even their fears are alleviated as their experience grows.

 

Dental treatment of those afraid of it can be made easier for them

The dentist can ease the fear of an anxious patient through his/her actions. The patient can ease the feeling himself/herself, too. It is important to get used to regular dental visits regardless of the fear.

According to FSHS research, students fear removals of wisdom teeth and root treatments most in their dental treatment.
