Why visit your Amsterdam dental anxiety specialist?

Fear of the dentist tends to start in childhood. It might be that you had a bad experience at the dentist´s, or that the people around you did. Anxiety can also arise from the sound of the dental drill. Wherever the fear arose: we understand. Which is why we take the time to listen carefully to our patients, to discuss, and explain thoroughly what treatment is needed and how it will be carried out. So, you can be sure you know what is involved and what to expect.

By creating a calm environment and taking the time to talk with you in depth, we can help you manage your fear.

The cause of anxiety or dentist fear

The causes of fear of the dentist are diverse and in many cases originate in childhood.
The most common causes of anxiety are:

  • Bad experiences with the (school) dentist
    These experiences can remain with you and increase your fear of the dentist.
  • Experiences of third parties
    Under this resorts horror stories and experiences of others, including parents, who typically also have anxiety or fear of the dentist.
  • Sound of the drill
    This causes constant fear of pain, especially drilling through nerves or the tongue.
