What is Psychoanalytical Dentistry?
There are a wide variety of fears in human life. Fear is a part of our life, affecting our daily lives negatively. Fear of Dentistry is one of the fears that people have. Some researchers have stressed that the fear of dentistry occurs with traumatic experiences or social learning (Bergren and his friends 1997).
Gale (1972), not only medical interventions in the formation of fear, but also the dentist’s communication with the patient, the patient’s comments on dental treatment can lead to this fear.
Stouthard and Hoogstraten (1987) investigated the fear of dentistry, being ready to visit the dentist, regularly attending the dentist, commenting on the oral area and treating the dentist in four areas, especially dental said that the physician’s interpretation of the mouth area and the treatment process increased fear.
Dentistry phobia often leads to deterioration of the individual’s oral health and hence the overall health.
It is very important to accurately assess the fear of dentistry. All aspects of the fear of dentistry should be revealed in detail. Hoogstraten, Melenbergh, Stouthard (1993) should use more than one measurement tool for research on dental anxiety, because the scale of the present is not fully covered by the concept of dentistry anxiety The
The fear of dentistry and the treatment of this fear is an issue that is strongly emphasized in developed countries.
In our society, the fear of dentistry is a one-to-many connection to the dentist. Therefore, systemic diseases that occur with unhealthy mouths and teeth have been our biggest health problems.
We provide a different approach to our patients who have a fear of dentistry in our clinic. First, we investigate the source of fear with our professional team, and we organize psychotherapies according to the source of the patient’s fear. When the patient is ready at the end of the therapy, we start treating oral and dental health.
