Dentist for
anxiety patients

Some people become nervous when they think about their next visit to the dentist or suffer from anxiety. They are not alone in this, because every second Swiss person says they are afraid of the dentist. This often manifests itself in sweats, sleeplessness or panic attacks. Most of the time, this fear means that the next appointment with the dentist is delayed, which unfortunately also affects the dental health of the patient concerned and often leads to chronic complaints.

So expresses fear of dentist

A pronounced fear of dentists in patients manifests itself through both psychological and physical symptoms. The signs on a psychological level are, in particular, inner restlessness and nervousness when an upcoming dentist appointment is approaching. The person concerned usually thinks of the upcoming appointment continuously, in addition nightmares and insomnia can occur at night. It is not uncommon for the upcoming appointment at the dentist to be canceled or postponed at short notice for vain reasons. Physical symptoms are manifested, among other things, by increased sweating, an increased pulse and stomach and intestinal complaints.

Dentist for anxiety patients in Oldenburg

Are you afraid of the dentist? Do not worry! You are not alone in your fear. Many patients fear visiting the dentist. This is mostly based on negative experiences that a dental patient has often had in childhood. The fear of the dentist often leads to a severe impairment of the quality of life, because missing dental treatment can have serious consequences, such as B. carious, dead teeth, tooth gaps, pain, inflammation and abscesses. Often there are mental impairments such as avoidance of intimate contacts, abuse of painkillers, social isolation, depression.

Child treatments in Berlin Dentist for children and anxious patients

Dental practice for children’s treatments in Berlin

We are not afraid of the dentist. A fear of the dentist usually arises in childhood when the child feels anxiety and nervousness among the adults. It is therefore particularly important that parents have a relaxed approach to the topic of dentists and bring their children to the practice early on as a companion. In our dental surgeries in Berlin, we have prepared ourselves specifically for child treatments and maintain child-friendly treatment with our little patients.

To go to the dentist? It’s not that bad!

For us, child treatments begin with the establishment of our dental practice. Through a child-friendly environment with pleasant colors, movement and play options, we take away the smallest possible feelings of fear from our smallest patients. A child-friendly language and detailed explanations of what will happen next are also part of good child treatment.

Gentle treatment especially for dentist fear / dentist phobia

The real fear of dentists – a taboo subject with bitter consequences

With real fear of dentists you still come across many prejudices today. To date, no celebrity has dared to go public with it. Most of the time, neither the family nor friends or acquaintances know about it. Stigmatization and the psychosocial effects usually put real fear of dentists under greater stress than bad teeth themselves. Further information

Dr. Michael Leu has developed a treatment technique that has proven itself many times over for real dentist anxiety patients: 3TermineTherapie. After the third appointment, the patients are usually refurbished and can now go to the normal dentist fear specialist "around the corner". We have been treating true dental anxiety patients across Europe using this method for almost 20 years. In the meantime, there are more than 4,000 successfully treated people.

Tips for anxious patients

Take a little nap and wake up refreshed with bright teeth! This is what some patients dream of before their dentist appointment – especially if a supposedly painful treatment is on the agenda.

This dream does not become a reality for us because we do not offer general anesthesia. And we have good reasons for that. It is not only since the tragic death of an 18-year-old fear patient in a Hamburg practice at the end of May 2016 that medical doctors have warned against the careless handling of general anesthesia. Even if all the high requirements for room and device standards are met and an anesthetist and qualified assistant initiate and discharge anesthesia, incidents can occur. For example, because the patient suffers from previous illnesses of which, as in the Hamburg case, he knew nothing at all.
