Proper oral hygiene and regular visits to the dentist are crucial in keeping a healthy smile. However, when people are afraid, they don’t go often enough, and some people refuse to go at all. In a survey by the British Dental Health Foundation, 36% of those who didn’t see a dentist on a routine basis said that fear was the primary reason, so why specifically are people afraid to go to the dentist?
Some people are afraid of what they think will be a painful experience at the dentist, no matter what work they’re having done. Others may be hesitant to go back due to a prior bad experience, often before the advancements made in pain-free dentistry. Some people may even be embarrassed to show someone else, even a dental professional, a mouth full of bad or failing teeth.
