Dental Anxiety - Are you a nervous patient and fear the Dentist? - Visage Dental Spa Harpenden | Dentist | Whitening | Hygiene | Dentistry | Hertfordshire | Wheathampstead | St.Albans | Luton

As many as one in four people fear or dread the Dentist. Some wait until they have severe dental pain before seeing their Dentist which can make anxiety levels much worse.

Are you afraid of the Dentist mean can mean different things to different people. Maybe it’s the thought that treatment will hurt, or that the sounds and smells bring back bad memories from negative experiences as a child. Most dental fear is usually caused by past experiences, feeling vulnerable and the feeling of not being in control.
