Have you been avoiding the dentist due to the fear of dental pain? If so, you could have dental phobia. Dental phobia is not only caused by a past experience with a neglectful dentist, but it can also be caused from many other things. Estimates say that 5 to 8 percent of Americans have dental phobia. Some Americans relate their dental phobia to a bad experience from a past dental office. Others relate their fear of the dentist with an unpleasant side effect from various mood disorders, anxiety disorders, substance abuse disorders, or the posttraumatic stress disorder, also known as PTSD, which is experienced by war veterans and other victims of trauma.
