If you fear going to the dentist, you are not alone. There are millions all over the world who share the same fears with you.
Dentist: Did you feel anything?
The patient: Have you already started?
Indeed, it`s a universal phenomenon. In general, few people look forward to a spell in the dentist`s chair. Actually, people don’t look forward to their dental appointment any more than they look forward to their visit to the doctor.
But for some, the thought could be terrifying to the extent that they’ll do just about anything to avoid a dental appointment. People with Dental Anxiety tend to have a sense of intense unease amplified with deep worries, when their dental visit is due.
Another more grave form of such apprehension is commonly known as “Dental Phobia” where there is overwhelming fear or dread.
