Nobody likes going to the dentist especially if one has had any traumatic episode related to it.
Normally when we think about the dentist office, words like pain, nervousness or discomfort come to mind. For this reason many times we postpone our visit to the dentists for as long as possible. We only go when the pain is very big and there is no more remedy.
Many people are afraid of going to the dentist, but in some cases the fear is transformed into phobia, that incapacitates people to monitor their mouth health and that may condition their lives. Now, according to researchers it seems that there may be a solution: cognitive-behavioural therapy can help many people with a dental phobia to overcome their fear of visiting dentist and to receive a treatment without being sedated.
Ziving Badía use learning by observation as cognitive-behavioural therapy. This type of therapy has been shown to help a variety of psychological problems. Also it has successful proved to reduce dental anxiety and to increase dental care.
People with dental phobias tend to avoid going to the dentist, which has a negative effect on their quality of life. Their is an estimation that one of every ten people suffer dental phobias. There is a true panic among the population about going to the dentist.
These patients end up visiting the dentist eventually, but with more serious problems and the need of more complex and annoying from the clinical point of view treatments, that at the same time are also more expensive.
