Dental anxiety is one of the most common types of fear in this country. Up to around 40% of the Danish population feels some sort of discomfort, when it is time for the yearly visit at the dentist. Some can not really point out, what makes them uncomfortable, since they have often repressed the exact situation, which they actually fear. Others are afraid of what the dentist might discover, when they have neglected the regular visits at the dentist for a longer period of time. Dental anxiety often results in a vicious circle, where the fear of the unknown wins and it ends up with only a visit to the dentist once every 5 year.
