Dental anxiety ranges from mild uneasiness to acute anxiety and even panic
When a person will not go at all to the dentist despite needing treatment, they can be said to be suffering from a dental phobia.
The particular fears of visiting the dentist vary from person to person.
Some people have their fear triggered by the sound of the drill, or the thought of needles in sensitive areas of their mouth.
For some it is the loss of control which is most feared, for others it is the fear of pain.
People with dental phobia have an awareness that the fear is totally irrational, but are unable to do much about it.
They exhibit classic avoidance behavior; that is, they will do everything possible to avoid going to the dentist.
