Why Do People Fear the Dentist?

There are many reasons why people suffer from dental fear or dental phobia. People who have advanced dental phobia will wait until the last possible moment to go to the dentist, even if it means losing a tooth or two.

For some, being afraid of the dentist started from childhood after a traumatic experience in the dental chair. While for others, that fear stems from feeling claustrophobic because someone is lurking over you.  Some people dislike needles, while others remember mom and dad’s horror stories about their dental experiences only making their own fear that much worse. As a result, this is felt by your friends and family.

Because your fear affects your family’s feelings about dentistry it only makes their own feelings worse.

How Dental Fear Affects Your Family

Fear of the dentist is passed on from generation to generation. If you remember your grandfather’s stories about having his teeth pulled out without much anesthetic, it probably had a big impact on your dental fear. You are amplifying those fears and your own bad dental experiences when you talk about your fear.
