dc.description.abstractResearch indicates that between 36-40% of people are afraid to visit the dentist, 20% are highly anxious and 5% avoid dental treatments due to severe anxiety (Lindsay & Jackson, 1993). Dental anxiety is known to be a major barrier to optimal health care with individuals fearful of impending invasive procedures often presenting only when in severe pain. Dental anxiety has been found to be based on past memories of experiences of pain and loss of control in the dental setting.en
dc.description.abstractEvidence from the literature suggests that some individuals with dental anxiety also present with additional psychological problems, such as panic disorder. De Jongh, Muris, ter Horst and Duyx (1995) also reported that individuals with dental anxiety also exhibited more catastrophizing thoughts related to dental treatment. A recent study by De Jongh, Aartman & Brand (manuscript submitted for publication) reported that intrusive memories of past distressing dental experiences were associated with trauma-related symptoms. However no structured assessment for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) was carried out.en
dc.description.abstractThis study aimed to identify the association between intrusive memories related to dental experiences and trauma-related symptomatology and to investigate differences in psychopathology and frequency of thought content in individuals presenting with and without intrusive memories. The proportion of individuals with intrusive memories who would meet criteria for PTSD was also investigated. Results will be given and conclusions reached.en
