Dental pain: anxiety and dental pain

There is a direct link between dental pain and anxiety. Part of the pain you feel when you go to the dentist is due to anxiety and fear of pain. The more one is afraid of pain, the more likely one is to feel the pain, since anxiety and fear stimulate the patient's sensitivity to pain.

The more vigilant we are, the more we will feel the painful perceptions. A person who is very impressed with dental care, will be more likely to feel the pain than someone who is not afraid. If we remain relaxed and detached from the dental act, we will have less pain.

To combat this anxiety, talk to your dentist who can help you and possibly prescribe the appropriate treatment before the appointment, before starting the necessary dental care.

It should also be noted that for children and sometimes adults, dental surgeons use in office, the gas mixture Meopa (oxygen + nitrous oxide). This treatment has shown its effectiveness as analgesic treatment during dental care; at the same time, it reduces the patient's level of anxiety.
