Is dental anxiety common?
Dental anxiety afflicts between 15 and 24 million Americans. These are the ones who will avoid going to the dentist no matter what dental problem is going on. Another 60 million Americans experience enough fear that they will go to the dentist only if it is absolutely necessary. So, dental anxiety is pretty common.
Of those who have expressed a fear of going to the dentist, more than 60 percent have said that their fear is attributed to a dental experience from their childhood. Taking care of your teeth when you are young leads to good dental hygiene when you get older. As your trusted dentist, Dr. Hunsicker-Morrissey will make sure that your experience is comfortable and relaxing, whether it is your first time or your hundredth. We won’t do anything that will be the cause of more stress in your already hectic life.
What are some steps I can take to lessen my dental fear?
There are some steps that you can take to lessen your own dental anxiety. The first is to identify what caused your fear. Was it unexpected pain at the dentist? Is it a feeling of being powerless in the dental chair? Whatever the cause of your anxiety, you should try and figure out what it is. The next step is to talk about it with someone you trust. It is best to discuss any issues with Dr Hunsicker or one of our team members, this way we will be able to address any concerns you may have.
