I Hate Dentists!

Dentophobia: It’s a real thing!

Unfortunately, most people are scared of dentists. Studies suggest that upto 60% of the
population have Dental Anxiety or dentophobia (fear of dentists and dental treatment). Of
this 39% are scared of pain, 24% smell of chemicals and 21% sound of the drill. For some
people the anxiety before a dental appointment can build up and result in sleepless nights
and palpitations.

Unfortunately, sometimes due to this fear, people avoid visiting the dentist till really

If you feel that this fear is making you avoid your dental visit, then schedule just a
consultation appointment with your dentist and speak to them about your fears. Sometimes
anti-anxiety pills can be prescribed a night before. Or some herbal essential oils that can
help with the anxiety in a more natural way.
Here are a few ways in which we can help a patient who fears dentists:

  • Meet and Greet Appointment to familiarize with the environment
  • Anti-anxiety medications
  • Herbal essential oils to be used before the appointment
  • Local anesthetic used in the area of work for a painless procedure
  • Noise cancelling Headsets to reduce the exposure to the sound of the drill
