About Dental Fear & Dental Anxiety

Assuaged By Our Sedation Dentistry in Flower Mound

If you avoid changing your smile’s appearance because you are anxious or afraid of undergoing complicated or lengthy dental procedures, Titensor Dental can eliminate or suppress your anxiety by using sedation dentistry. Our sedation dentistry in Flower Mound can help you feel comfortable throughout the treatment process, reduce your dental fear or phobia, and help you attain a confident, beautiful smile.

Classifications of Dental Fear

In order to understand better the categories of dental fear, psychologists developed the following distinctions between dental phobia, dental fear, and dental anxiety.

The distinctions are as follows:

  • Dental anxiety – a response to an experience you have not yet gone through. You are not alone in this classification. Many people experience some degree of dental anxiety, more than ever if they know they are about to undergo a procedure not in their dental records – a new dental experience, a fear of the unknown.
  • Dental fear – a response to an experience you have gone through previously. Dental fear stems from knowing what lies ahead. You have received similar dental work in the past and you know what to expect; and because you know what the procedure entails, you are fearful of going through the same experience.
  • Dental phobia – a response similar to dental fear, however, the reaction is more intense and debilitating. No way are you stepping foot back into that or any dentist’s office again. Your dental phobia is so strong that you avoid dental checkups, dental cleanings, and all things dental!

How to Overcome Your Fear of the Dentist

Titensor Dental will evaluate your individual concerns and recommend the sedation dentistry that best fits your needs. Sedation dentistry works to address several of the fears that can prevent you from coming to our office regularly. As a patient that elects to utilize sedation dentistry, you are more likely to receive your necessary dental cleanings and treatments. With means to lessen your dental phobia, you are less prone to neglect your oral health care or allow oral health problems to accumulate when perhaps initial, preventative dental care would have thwarted future extreme dental treatments.

Dental Phobia & Your Daily Life

Dental phobia can unseeingly impact your life. Not only does your dental health suffer, but also your dental phobia may lead to anxiety and depression. You might avoid meeting new people or even close friends because the appearance of your teeth causes you embarrassment. You may avoid job opportunities where smiling is in the job description. You may experience low self-esteem because you are upset with yourself for neglecting your dental health, social life, friends, and more. Don’t let your dental phobia get in the way of you living a happy, confident life.
