Getting to the Root of Dental Phobia
Date:3/30/2009

e have been advances in anxiety control, including pharmacological interventions, there also are simple things patients can do to help ease their fears. The AAE recommends the following tips for people who are anxious about the dental chair:

  • Ensure Open Communication. At your first appointment, be open and honest about your fears. This will help you and your doctor create solutions to ease your worries, such as agreeing on a "stop" signal if you become too anxious and need a short break during a procedure.
  • Ask Questions. Don't be afraid to ask your doctor to fully explain any procedure, even basic cleanings. For root canals or similar treatments, ask for a brochure explaining the process or have your dentist refer you to a specialist who can describe each step.
  • Distract Yourself. One in five people say the noises made by dental instruments frighten them. A simple solution is to bring a portable music device with headphones to each appointment or ask your dental professional to play soothing music during the procedure.
  • See a Specialist. A general dentist can perform most of your dental work, but if you need a more complex procedure such as a root canal, ask to be referred to an endodontist, a dental professional with advanced technology and training.

Root Canal Awareness Week

Sponsored by the AAE, Root Canal Awareness Week provides an opportunity to dispel long-standing myths about root canal treatment and increase understanding of the procedure as one that is virtually painless. The week also seeks to raise awareness of endodontics as a specialty and highlight the importance of endodontists, the dentists who specialize in root canal treatment. For more information on local Root Canal Awareness Week activities or to find an endodontist in your area, visit
