Dental anxiety is a fear or phobia of receiving dental care, which can lead to avoidance of dental visits. It is a common condition, affecting a significant number of individuals of all ages.

Treatment options for dental anxiety include sedation dentistry, which uses medication to induce relaxation and reduce anxiety during dental procedures. Other techniques, such as deep breathing exercises, distraction techniques, and communication with the dental team, may also be employed to help manage anxiety.

Dental anxiety treatment can be highly effective in helping individuals manage their fear and receive necessary dental care. Sedation dentistry has been proven to significantly reduce anxiety levels and provide a more comfortable experience. The success of treatment may vary depending on individual circumstances and the chosen treatment approach.

Dental anxiety treatment can be used for a wide range of dental procedures, from routine cleanings and exams to more extensive treatments like fillings or extractions. The level of anxiety and the specific needs of the individual will determine the most suitable treatment approach. Consulting with a dental professional is important to discuss your specific concerns and develop a personalized treatment plan.

I'd like to share a detailed and honest review of my experience. I'm an Australian patient who was in search of an affordable option abroad to improve my smile and bite functionality, as dental costs in Australia tend to be quite high. After extensive research, I came across Meraki Dental Studio in Delhi, India. In March, I made the decision to travel to Delhi and begin my smile makeover journey. My initial visit took place in April, during which Dr. Harleen and her team conducted five dental implants and addressed various other minor dental issues. After a waiting period, I returned to receive crowns for my missing teeth and 18 porcelain veneers. Along the way, there were a few minor challenges, but Dr. Harleen consistently chose not to take shortcuts. Instead, she always found solutions to ensure my satisfaction, even if it meant some(quite a bit) inconvenience on her end. Dr. Harleen is not only an exceptional dentist but also a remarkable and humble person. I've never been as satisfied with a healthcare practitioner before. What truly stood out about Meraki Dental Studio is their unwavering commitment to prioritizing patient satisfaction over financial considerations, which is a rarity in the healthcare industry. I'm incredibly grateful for the care I received at Meraki Dental Studio, and the results of their work are truly remarkable. I've attached some before-and-after photos so you can witness the impressive transformation achieved by Dr. Harleen and her team.

I had visited Dr. Harleen for consultation and after a lot of research and looking into other options. I couldn’t find someone better than her in terms of experience, services, technology, price and most of all her warm and understanding nature. I went ahead with an entire smile makeover (veneers, crown, gingivectomy, zoom whitening, composite filling) and I am more than satisfied. The finish is so natural. She worked so hard to make sure every detail and need was fulfilled. Her entire team is so amazing. They made sure I was looked after well in all my sittings. They were professional yet so fun. The most important part is my smile speaks volume of the work Dr did on me. Its more than amazing (it looks so natural). I highly recommend Dr Harleen for anything dental. She also managed to save two of my teeth from a root canal which was so impressive. For a person who doesn’t like visiting dentist, I wouldn’t mind visiting her again rather than delaying my treatments. Ps. I traveled from Indore to get my treatment done by her because she is that good.

Dental Anxiety Treatment

What is Dental Anxiety & Dental Phobia? – Dental Anxiety Treatment

It is common to feel worried about an important appointment with the dentist, but it is not normal for this to impact your quality of life, decisions about your health or your ability to receive treatment. For those suffering extreme dental anxiety, also known as dental phobia, your fear might even make it too hard to make it to a normal dental check-up! – Dental Anxiety Treatment.

Unfortunately, these feelings of dental anxiety can become ingrained over time and some sufferers feel ‘trapped’. This can lead to neglect for your smile, and the guilt that follows can contribute to your anxiety even further.

However, not all dental anxiety & dental phobia is the same. There’s a spectrum – from mild anxiety to severe phobia – and the techniques to manage these different degrees of fear are varied. So, where should you start on your journey to overcoming dental anxiety? 

Signs and symptoms of dental anxiety

People with dental anxiety may experience-sweating

  • racing heartbeat (tachycardia) or palpitations
  • low blood pressure and possible fainting (syncope)
  • visible distress, crying or signs of panic
  • withdrawal, or using humour or aggression to mask anxiety
  • Some anxious patients will routinely miss dental appointments, and may find it difficult to undergo dental treatment regardless of whether it is simple or complex 

Management of dental anxiety

The etiology for dental anxiety is multifactorial, and hence there is no monotherapy for management. Proper evaluation of the patient and identifying their source and level of anxiety can enable the dentist in deciding a proper treatment plan. Anxiety can be triggered by even the most innocuous situations, such as the encounter with the receptionist while scheduling their appointments or clinic ambience, and thus it is essential that every aspect of the dental practice be appropriate.

We understand how important it is to make the patient feel comfortable and ease all the anxiety. Thus, we have designed the clinic in such a way that there are no visual or olfactory triggers. In fact we are the only clinic in India to use BACH FLOWER THERAPY AND REIKI to control dental Fear. Dr. Harleen Gandhi Kalsi is a Reiki level 2 healer.

Management in children

In managing children with dental anxiety, we use the following:

  • Allocate enough time for appointment.
  • Communicate effectively.
  • Utilize the four “s” principle by reducing triggers of stress. These are sight of injections, handpieces, and blood; smell of materials such as eugenol; sound of drilling or other patients crying; and sensation of vibrating instruments.
  • Distract the patient using music, video.
  • Give a sense of control over the procedure by involving the patient during treatment, like to raise hand when feeling pain or uncomfortable.
  • Reduce pain by giving enough anesthesia.
  • Provision of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT).
  • Provision of relaxation therapy for older children that will assist patients to gain control over their psychological state. The techniques can be given before and even during the procedure. These may include Jacobsen’s progressive muscular relaxation, paced breathing techniques.
  • In highly anxious patients who could not do any of the psychotherapeutics, pharmacotherapy may be indicated such as:
  • Conscious sedation technique, whereby drugs are provided to render an anxious patient to a depressive state. The routes of application can be oral, sublingual, intramuscular, rectal, and in dental setting with enough resources, intravenous administration, or inhalation using nitrous oxide (N2O) gas.
  • When the above techniques do not help, the practitioner can refer the patient to a specialist psychologist for further management or can resort to general anesthesia if equipment and trained personnel are available. 


Mild fears over seeing the dentist are best remedied by going to the dentist instead of avoiding it. In the case of significant dental work, you may ask to be sedated so you’re not awake during the procedure. However, if you have a true phobia, the act of going to the dentist is much easier said than done. Like other phobias, dentophobia may be tied to an anxiety disorder, which may require a combination of therapies and medications.
