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 Hellertown, PA dentist at Hellertown Dental Group, we make sure that your experience, whether it is your first time or your hundredth, is comfortable and relaxing. 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. The best person to discuss it with is your trusted Hellertown, PA dentist or one of our team members at Hellertown Dental Group.
