Dental phobics react extremely sensitive, if fairness norms are violated. Fairness is obviously a central requirement for dental phobics.
No - many have no pain at all.
Many patients can tolerate pain easily.
Among other things, the power of concentration deteriorates and control is lost more or less. The pulse rate increases, for example. As a consequence to the increased pulse rate the following reactions can be expected:
- From pulse 145 per minute the motor skills subtlety reduces.
- From pulse 170 per minute the tunnel vision phenomenon starts. The perception is superficial and you hear less.
- From pulse 180 per minute it is like hell. The rational thinking ability decreases significantly, the control of bowel and blister is lost and behaviours such as freezing, trying to escape or submission become apparent.
The dental phobic is a person with a disease.
He needs a specialist for Dental Phobia.
Dentists are not trained to deal with the disease "Dental Phobia"
It is estimated that approximately 10% of the world-wide population is affected.
We would like to faultlessly diagnose Dental Phobia. But no scientifically precise diagnostic method exists down to the present day. There is just the HAF-test. The one who reaches more than 38 HAF-points suffers from dental phobia. However, many patients have problems with this test. It is not very good!
There is the HAF-test. We use this test because there is no alternative. Patients often say that they would indicate a different value depending on the situation. This means that the test does not comply with modern scientific methods. But there is just nothing better.
The reason is certainly the low quality of the researchers who are active in this field!
When you fill out the phobia test on the page Phobia Self-Test you can determine your personal phobia HAF value.
If the value is above 38 points you suffer from the disease fear of visiting the dentist ICD 10 F40.2.This disease is a recognized phobia disorder.
If the value is below 38 points it is the normal fear of dentists.
Fear is no disease! Fear makes sense.
A phobia is a disease. The causes of dental phobia are not exactly known.
Dental phobia has certainly something to do with bad experiences in connection with dentists, and possibly also with the problem of malocclusion. Most likely dental phobia has something to do with a lack of fairness of dentists, most likely with a lack of competence of dentists, as well.
