FEAR OF THE DENTIST
Teeth and the perception of teeth are actually associated with pain. Just as when the teeth first erupt in the mouth, they settle in the mouth by hurting the baby with their sharp structure, and during this period, the baby hurts the mother’s breast by biting it with this newly acquired sharp organ. Have you ever thought of it like this? The perception of teeth, that is, we perceive our teeth with pain. It is inevitable that it is painful to put it in the mouth and painful while it functions.
Fear plays an important role in our lives. Fear is a kind of protective reflex that we have to show.
WHAT DOES FEAR OF THE DENTIST MAKE US DO?
It causes us to walk around with constant toothache. This toothache, which also affects our daily life, or teeth with a bad appearance cause loss of self-confidence. Not being able to go to the dentist unless you have to and postponed appointments increase dental problems.
WHO IS MOST AFRAID OF THE DENTIST?
In the researches conducted, the level of fear is higher in male patients than in female patients because men are not very used to dealing with their facial areas. Our 50 cm distance is our intimate area. We only allow special people such as our mothers, fathers, children and spouses into this intimate area. For this reason, while women get support from other people in cosmetic care, men do not have this contact with other people, so the dentist entering this area will be scary for them. In addition, the female body experiences regular menstruation every month. This makes the female body more resilient.
