Abstract

The purpose of the present paper is to provide a summary of features of patients suffering from a wide range of anxiety disorders by means of case histories and clinical descriptions. Particularly, attention is being devoted to distinguishing between patients of which the predominant problem is specific fear for one or more aspects of dental treatment and patients with a non-specific or a general anxiety problem, including panic disorder and generalized anxiety disorder.
