For most people, being anxious before visiting the dentist is normal. However, some people get very anxious every time their dental appointment is approaching and this can have a negative impact on their oral health. Dental phobia is not a rare occurrence and some people will even avoid going to the dentist unless it is absolutely necessary.
Choosing the right dentist can alleviate unwanted stress. At Care Dental Platinum, we will take the time to listen to your concerns and come up with the best solution possible, all in a friendly and cosy environment. Dr Bashar Al-Naher has much experience with anxious patients and he is the ideal dentist for nervous patients in London.
What causes dental phobia?
Dental phobia and anxiety can be caused by different factors, some of which include:
- Bad experiences
- Loss of control
Patients who have had bad dental experiences are less likely to be inclined to visit the dentist when they grow up. Similarly, some patients feel that they do not possess control when they are sitting in the dentist’s chair and feel private about their mouths. Other patients may be ashamed to visit the dentist because of the bad state of their teeth and gums, or due to their bad breath. Last but not least, quite a few people associate the dentist with pain and discomfort. You can overcome most of these problems by visiting our dentist for nervous patients in London.
