Fear of Dental Pains Worsen Oral Health

Parent Interventions

Fear of dental pain carried over from childhood to adulthood can cause people to avoid going to a dentist and increase the risk of oral health and overall health problems. Dental fear is developed in childhood and 35% of kids in the age group of 6 and 14 have experienced pain in the dental chair. Cameron Randall, a clinical psychologist and acting assistant professor at the University Of Washington School Of Dentistry is undertaking a study to assess practices of pediatric dentists and general dentists who work with a lot of pediatric patients. One of the objectives is to improve the approaches to pain management and prevent distress, with the long-term goal of reducing dental fear and related health consequences.
