Dental Hygiene Fear: Gender and Age Differences

The Journal of Contemporary Dental Practice, Volume 1, No. 2, Winter Issue, 2000


This article demonstrates how dental fear and anxiety can lead to oral disease.  Your sedation dentist can administer oral conscious sedation even for cleanings and minor procedures.  A Sedation Dentist can help achieve a healthy and brilliant smile without the pain and anxiety you normally feel during your visits.


Studies aimed at examining gender and age differences as they relate to dental anxiety have begun to appear in the literature. The purpose of this investigation was to explore fear and anxiety in a dental hygiene setting and evaluate gender and age differences among four sub-scales of dental hygiene fear.
