Have you ever wondered what it is that causes you to fear your visits to the dentist? Is it the fear of pain? The fear of injections or the fear of dental fear itself?
Often this fear has to do with painful visits to the dentist in your childhood, the smell of the dental practice or the feeling of lying helplessly on your back while having to endure the treatment, and all this may cause you to fear your next visit there. And in the end it wasn’t even half as bad … until you have your next dental appointment.
You are not alone with your fear. Acc. to the Dental Association in Lower Saxony approx. 65% of the German population suffer from dental phobia. People don’t like to get into situations where they experience the limit of what is personally acceptable to them. Some people therefore avoid seeing a dentist completely – which may cause severe damage to their dentition.
Our dental artists are well aware of the fears that may worry our patients when they consider visiting a dental practice. As your hosts we try from the very beginning to deal with your fears together. As modern dentists we use many classic approaches but also alternatives like hypnosis and acupuncture to deal with your fears.
We want you to be confident and optimistic after the treatment and when thinking of your next appointment with the dental artists. And, hopefully, free of fear!
