Where does dentophobia come from?Traumatic experiences at the dentist’s during childhood are often responsible for dental treatment phobia. People who experienced pain in the dental treatment chair as children can develop pronounced anxiety symptoms. This is by no means rare: Around ten million German citizens have a fear of the dentist.
Some nervous patients manage to overcome it alone, but for others a dental visit is practically impossible. They suffer from palpitations, dizziness and nausea and even circulatory collapse, and avoid contact with anything that is associated with a dental practice.
As well as dentophobia, many patients also experience a gag reflex which occurs as soon as they feel tools in their mouth or their tongue is touched. Experience with unsympathetic dentists in such situations can make the feeling of unease even worse.
What are the consequences of dentophobia?
For some patients, the fear is so strong and overwhelming that they don't go to the dentist for years. The consequences are often disastrous - daily cleaning alone is not enough to keep teeth healthy in the long term! Regular visits to the dentist and regular professional dental hygiene are essential if you wish to have pain-free, functional and good-looking teeth until you reach an old age.
However, people with dental treatment phobia often suffer from more than just pain. It is not uncommon for them to be ashamed of their damaged, broken or discoloured teeth - they no longer dare to show their teeth in public when laughing, and certainly won’t visit the dentist.
We will help you to break out of this vicious circle! As a team of specialists, we know how difficult the first step, is and will gladly accompany you in a gentle way by means of pleasant treatment. We want you to be able to laugh again!
