Tricks That May Help Relieve Dental Fears

If you fear going to the dentist, know you are not alone. Due to dental fears, 5 to 8 percent of Americans will not go to the dentist, whereas another 20 percent will go only when necessary. Studies by scientists at the Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, Sweden, suggest two factors in helping manage dentist-related stress: optimism and humor. They found that when patients went in for visits with a feeling of optimism and the dentists’ offices had an atmosphere of humor, patients were much less likely to have fearful, stressful visits. So when addressing your dental fears, go to the dentist with optimism. Such as reminding yourself how much better you will feel afterward.
