Fear of dentists ? Help please?
Ok, ever since I was a young kid, I have been scared of the dentist, my first dentist wasn't very child friendly and I think that may be why. Every time I'm going for a regular checkup I'm terrified at needing a filling or something. I have braces and going to the ortho doesn't scare me that much, I think it may be because I know what's happening there, but at the regular dentist I'm just so scared at what they're going to say. I'm going for a checkup later today and I now have a new dentist, I'm just still scared of needing work. My teeth don't feel any different from last time I went (like my molars don't feel any deeper or anything) and I don't have any pain, but I'm still scared of needing a filling. Any advice ? Thanks

It's weird because I haven't needed any work in years but it still worries me for some reason =/

why should you be scared of dentists? what are they going to do? kill you with a 3 foot needle or pull all your teeth out forcing you to blender you food for the rest of your life?

toughen up that's all i can say

So scared!! Me too!!!

BUCK UP you have to forget all past incidences and look for a better future dont panic you are extremely safe

brush and floss regularly

Just relax, they aint gonna hurt u or anything and if u are really terrified, tell the desntist cos they will have a special way of treating people with a phobia and they will put u at ease :)

hope this helps

A. Learn to relax.
B. Let your dentist know you are scared. They can't guess.
C. Go regularly, and ask if anything looks likley to cause a problem in future. (be aware of your dental health).
D. DON'T try anything like weed, or relaxing remedies before hand. They DO NOT work.


There is nothing to be afraid of.They are only people assisting with your medical needs. The injection does not hurt these days, as they put numbing gel on the gum first. Our dentist has a TV above so we just watch that, and they get on with the job that they are well paid to do. Be brave.

You need to tell the dentist or his receptionist...most dentists these days have a special programme for people who are afraid...they've taken courses in how to make people feel less scared....if you tell them they will give you special care.

I get scared if I need a filling too, but if you clean your teeth twice a day, everyday, it shouldn't be too bad. I never used to clean my teeth when I was younger, but I started doing it and it really benefitted me at the dentist.

Dentistry has improved out of all recognition now, to what it used to be. There is no need at all to be scared of modern dentistry.

And most Dentists have been trained to deal with people who have a fear of them. I find most dentists very consoling and sympathetic.

So don`t worry. There is less pain from the needle now, than from getting a thorn in your finger. And less than ever when they are dealing with your teeth.

dont worry, its for your benifit... sure it might hurt but when you get looks from lads, at least when you smile back they wont die because you have no teeth!

Just relax, Easy to say I know but at the end of the day if there were any work that was needed just explain that you have had unpleasantast experiences (this will then make him causious) and he will be gentle with your teeth! But don't worry all the work sounds as if its already been done so just sit back and relax, you will probably only be in there for about 3 minutes!




My sister is scared of the dentist too so I sort of know how you feel. She works on a distraction basis. She makes her day really busy before she goes and she takes an ipod into the waiting room with her so she can't hear what is going on when she gets there. If you aren't having any pain etc and you are seeing an orth my guess is you will be fine today it is just your thing you don't like, everyone has one :)
