Assessment of Relationship between Pain and Anxiety Following Dental Extraction—A Prospective Study
TLDR
Although most patients had experienced limited pain, there was a significant gender difference in pain and anxiety level, with women being more anxious than men following dental extraction.
Intra-operative pain perception in tooth extraction--possible causes.
TLDR
The results suggest that the status of the attending surgeon may affect the level of anxiety in patients undergoing tooth extractions prior to surgery, while patient's occupational group and duration of surgery could contribute to patient's intraoperative pain perception despite the administration of local anaesthesia.
Pain perception and anxiety during scaling in periodontally healthy subjects.
TLDR
Although most patients experienced limited pain during scaling, a significant relationship was found between pain and smoking and women and patients aged 30 to 40 years are likely to be more anxious during scaling.
Predictors of pain associated with routine procedures performed in general dental practice.
TLDR
Dentists need to assess their patients both preoperatively for dental anxiety and intra-operative for signs of suboptimal local anaesthesia so as to effectively align patient management and clinical techniques to control dental Anxiety and produce adequate anaesthesia.
Anxiety may enhance pain during dental treatment.
TLDR
It is suggested that patients feel stronger pain if anxiety in the treatment environment is high and that it is, therefore, important to reduce anxiety during treatment to reduce pain.

Determinants of painful experience during dental treatment *
TLDR
Anxiety is determinant for pain during dental care and pain is related to local anesthetic procedures and there are evidences that dentists’ attitudes are determinants for pain.
Dental trait anxiety and pain sensitivity as predictors of expected and experienced pain in stressful dental procedures.
