Abstract

Little is known about the longitudinal course of dental anxiety in relation to age, mental health and personality factors. In 1968-69 a representative sample of 778 women aged 38 to 54 yr took part in a psychiatric examination. Three hundred and ten were followed up in 1992-93. A phobia questionnaire, including assessment of dental fear, and the Eysenck Personality Inventory were distributed to the participants at both occasions, High dental fear was reported by 16.8% of the women at baseline and was associated with a higher number of other phobias, a higher lever of neuroticism, more psychiatric impairment, more social disability due to phobic disorder, and a higher anxiety level. Among women who reported high dental fear in 1968-69 (n=36), 64% remitted and 36% remained fearful. Among women with low dental fear in 1968-69 (n = 274), 5% reported high dental fear in 1992-93. Chronicity was associated with higher neuroticism, lower extraversion, and more psychiatric impairment at base-line. Remission was associated with higher extraversion at baseline. Dental anxiety increased or decreased over time in concert with the number of other fears.
