National Anxiety Month is celebrated in April, so it’s a great time to reflect on one of the most common fears in America: dental care. Dental anxiety usually starts in childhood. Some people become scared after a painful treatment, and pain isn’t easily forgotten. Other people might be afraid of dentist tools or weird smells and tastes they encountered while in the dentist’s chair. A study by Delta Dental Plans revealed a link between parents’ dental fear and their children’s. About half of parents polled admitted to being scared of the dentist; the number of children with the same fear was almost identical. You Can Defeat Adult Dental Fear If you’re a parent, you can avoid passing along dental anxiety to your children by acting positive toward dentistry and managing your dental fear. Here are five ways for adults to stop being afraid of dentist appointments.
