Many people explain that their fear of the dentist comes to them from their first experience (as a child) was traumatic because remember that hurt them and in some cases even had to hold several people.
There are several things against which we are happy to go to the dentist :
Atmosphere impresses us: people with robe, wearing masks and “tools” that we associate with pain. The smell and especially sound are one of the main factors that cause dental fear.
Normally you do not know that they will not make you exactly what will last. Remain in an awkward position (open mouth). There is a feeling of helplessness.
Possible solutions :
- First (before you get in the dental chair) explain that you are going to do and how long it will last, more or less treatment. Then, during treatment, relaxing much to tell you what they are doing, if much remains will then happened.
- When it comes to children with dental fear often helps greatly let them touch the instrumental (you can have one to touch it and see). So are not short. Some dentists also have a doll for a child to pretend he heals teeth. So you see that nothing happens and relaxing.
- Music is always helpful. You can have a relaxing music or advise the patient to the music you bring relax more.
Agreeing, input, a gesture that makes you understand the doctor who needs a break or bothers us that manipulation.
