  •  Psychodynamic theories:  Psychosexual theory- Sigmund Freud (1905)  Cognitive development theory- Jean Piaget (1952)  Psychosocial theory- Eric Erickson (1963)  Behavioral theories:  Classical conditioning – Pavlov (1927)  Operant conditioning – Skinner (1938)  Hierarchy of needs – Masler (1954)  Social Learning theory – Bandura (1963) www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • Psychosexual/Psychoanalytical Theory Sigmund Freud (1905)  Attempts to explain the personality & psychological disorders .  Personality to originate from biological roots, as a result of satisfaction of set of instincts of which sexual instinct is important. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • Psychosexual/Psychodynamic Theory • Described 6 stages– • oral anal urethral phallic latency genital At each stage sexual energy invested in particular part is called an erogenous zone. • Human mind– topographic model psychic model/psychic triad www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • Topographical model  MIND AS AN ICEBERG… Consists of….. ,,,,,,, conscious, preconscious & subconscious mind www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • Only 10% of an iceberg is visible (conscious) whereas the other 90% is beneath (unconscious) www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • Conscious mind  The conscious mind is where we are paying attention at the moment…  Only our current thinking processes and objects of attention  Constitutes a very large part of our current awareness www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • Preconscious mind  Ordinary memory & knowledge  Those things of which we are aware, but where we are not paying attention  Deliberately bring them into the conscious mind by focusing www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • Unconscious/Subconscious mind  The process and content are out of direct reach of the conscious mind.  Thinks and acts independently  Dump box for urges, feelings and ideas  Exert influence on our actions and our conscious awareness www.indiandentalacademy.com

  • PSYCHIC TRIAD/MODEL SUPER EGO EGO ID www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • Structural mind  An individual’s feelings, thoughts, and behaviors are the result of the interaction of the id, the ego and the superego www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • ID – Pleasure principle  Basic structure of personality which serves as reservoir of instincts or mental representative.  Born with it.  As newborns, it allows us to get our basic needs met  Wants whatever feels good at the time, with no consideration for the reality of the situation  Strives for immediate pleasure and gratification www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • Ego  The rational part of the mind.  Develops out of ID in 2-6 month, when infant distinguish between itself and outside world.  Uses secondary processes (perception, recognition, judgment and memory)  Its governed by -- “Reality principle”  REALITY PRINCIPLE -- Developed after birth , expands with age and it delays modifies and controls ID impulses on realistic level. www.indiandentalacademy.com

  • Regression:  Giving up of mature problem-- solving methods in favor of child like approaches to fixing problems www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • REPRESSION PRIMARY REPRESSION PRIMAL REPRESSION Expulsion of thought and memories that might provoke anxiety from conscious mind Process by which hidden ID impulses are blocked from ever reaching consciousness. Past painful dental experience --- avoid thinking about painful event --repress anxiousness www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • Rationalization:  Giving excuses for shortcomings and thereby avoiding self-condemnation, disappointments, or criticism by others Poor performance in exam blame teacher www.indiandentalacademy.com

  • WHATS NOT SO GOOD ABOUT THIS THEORY?  Based only on the sexual drive  Based on studies conducted on few patients  Complicated and not very practically applicable  Has been a source of constant criticism and debate (sexuality, oedipus complex)  Most of the work based on psychological patients www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • PSYCHOSOCIAL THEORY: ERIK ERIKSON 1963  Infancy childhood old age  Development depends on child’s instincts and responses of those around him.  Unresolved issues from early stages of life affect person’s ability to deal with subsequent visits.  8 STAGES OF LIFE CYCLES : TURNING POINTS /PERIODS www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • PSYCHOLOGICAL CRISIS www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • 1. Basic trust Vs basic mistrust ( hope ) Birth- 18 months  First trust of INFANT MOTHER ( caregiver) Well handled adly handled Nurtured Loved Develops trust, security basic optimism.

  • COGNITIVE DEVELOPMENT THEORY- JEAN PIAGET (1952)  How children and adolescent think and acquire knowledge.  Derived from direct observation of children and questioning them.  Environment does not shape child behavior, but child and adult actively seek to understand the environment.  A child incorporates or assimilates events within the environment into mental categories called cognitive structures. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • Adapt to new information Assimilation •Reinterpret new experiences so they EQUILIBRATION fit into old ideas. •Existing ideas don’t change, stay same Accommodation •Change old ideas so they can adapt to new. • Change current ways of thinking/ideas so as to add new knowledge ???????? Bird -- Flying object – Bee ?????? www.indiandentalacademy.com

  • Cognitive development theory MERITS  Most comprehensive. DEMERITS  Underestimates ability.  Overestimates age differences in thinking. intellectual development.  Vagueness about change process.  Underestimates role of social environment.  Learn much about child’s www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • Classical conditioning – Pavlov (1927)  Russian psychologist Ivan Petrovich Pavlov – first to study conditioned reflexes experimentally.  Demonstrated how learned associations were formed by various events in an organisms environment.  Pavlov’s psychic reflex called as conditioned reflex by experiment. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • Classic Ivan Pavlov experiment A simple three step example which shows the important elements of conditioning:  Step 1: Before conditioning Salivation – Unconditional response or unconditional reflex www.indiandentalacademy.com
  •  Step 2: The conditioning process Neutral stimulus Unconditional stimulus Note: Repetition of this is done at each time www.indiandentalacademy.com
  •  Step 3: After conditioning www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • How can we apply to Dentistry???....  First visit White coat (Neutral stimulus) Pain of injection (Unconditioned stimulus) pain of injection (Unconditioned stimulus) fear and crying (Response)  Second visit Sight of white coat (Conditioned stimulus) Pain of injection (Unconditioned stimulus) www.indiandentalacademy.com pain of injection (Unconditioned. Stimulus) fear and crying (Response)
  • Once conditioned response has established,, its necessary to reinforce it occasionally to maintain it. ACQUISATION -- GENERALIZATION -- EXTINCTION -- DISCRIMINATION www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • Operant Conditioning Theory  SKINNER B.F ( American psychologist)  Also called as Instrumental Learning.  Extension of classical conditioning.  Consequence of a behavior is in itself a stimulus that affects future behavior.  Behavior that controls or operates environment is called as OPERANT.  REINFORCEMENT is critical factor in learning and development of www.indiandentalacademy.com personality.
  •  Four basic types of operant conditioning: (distinguished by the nature of the consequence.): 1. Positive reinforcement 2. Negative reinforcement 3. Omission 4. Punishment www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • : Positive reinforcement A pleasant consequence follows a response. A child is given a reward such as a toy for behaving well during her first dental visit. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • Negative reinforcement  Involves the withdrawal of an unpleasant stimulus after a response.  Leads to the removal of an undesirable stimulus. Temper tantrum   Child Go to clinic. If this behavior (response) succeeds -- likely to occur the next time a visit to the clinic is proposed.  So in dental office, it is important to reinforce only desired behavior. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • Omission (also called time-out):  Involves removal of a pleasant stimulus after a particular response.  Favorite toy taken away for a short time (sending the mother out of the operatory) as a consequence of this behavior, the probability of similar misbehavior is decreased. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • Punishment:  Occurs when an unpleasant stimulus is presented after a response. This also decreases the probability that the behavior . Effective at all ages, not just with children. Firm voice – voice control. Use of tongue crib for correction of tongue thrusting habit. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • Social Learning Theory  Albert Bandura  Emphasizes the importance of observing and modeling the behaviors, attitudes, and emotional reactions of others.  Social learning theory explains human behavior in terms of continuous reciprocal interaction between cognitive, behavioral, an environmental influences. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  •  General principles of social learning theory are as follows: 1. People can learn by observing the behavior of others and the outcomes of those behaviors. 2. Learning can occur without a change in behavior. 3. Cognition plays a role in learning. 4. Social learning theory can be considered a bridge or a transition between behaviorist learning theories and cognitive learning theories. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  •  Observational learning is also known as Imitation or Modeling.  Learning occurs when individuals observes and imitate others’ behavior.  There are four component processes influenced by the observer’s behavior following exposure to models.  Attention  Retention  Motor Reproduction  Motivation. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • EFFECTS OF MODELING ON BEHAVIOR  Modeling teaches new behaviors.  Modeling influences the frequency of previously learned behaviors.  Modeling may encourage previously forbidden behaviors.  Modeling increases the frequency of similar behaviors. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • Hierarchy Of Needs  Maslow believed in self-actualization theory.  Based on totality of personality development.  But its difficult and impractical to apply to children and dental situation. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • Hierarchy Of Needs- 1954  Abraham Harold Maslow To achieve one’s full potential To be competent and recognized To love and to be loved, to have friends Security, comfort, freedom from fear Food , water and oxygen www.indiandentalacademy.com

  • HURT CRY  May be loud or a small whimper  Single tear – First indicator  Most easily recognized as the child acknowledges it. COMPENSATORY CRY  More sound & less cry..!  Droning monotonous coping resort  More strategic and less anxiety related  Few actual tears..if any.. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • ANGER: Outburst of emotion caused by child’s lack of skill in handling situation. ANXIETY: Its emotion similar to fear but arising without any objective source of danger.(Its reaction to unknown danger) FEAR: Fear is reaction to known danger , its source is consciousness. PHOBIA: it’s a persistent , excessive ,unreasonable fear of a specific object, activity or situation . www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • Behavior: any change observed in functioning of an organism. Frankel’s classification(1962): 1.

  • PSYCHOLOGICAL MANAGEMENT  Orthodontic treatment initiated during pre-pubertal or early pubertal developmental period of child.  Initial exam and consultation diagnosis and treatment plan discussed with child and parents.  If extractions are planned, its important to present possibility of extractions to the patient during initial examination or early treatment planning. Norton et al “Psychological management of young orthodontic patient”. Angle orthodontist july 1971 www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • PSYCHOLOGICAL MANAGEMENT OF PATIENT BY SPECIFIC AGE GROUPS 1. YOUNG CHILD FROM 6-9YRS  Attempt to break infantile habits of digit sucking and tongue thrusting.  Fixed appliances www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • 2. EARLY ADOLESCENT ( 10-13 YRS)  Sexual differences become more important in girl child.  A boy will look for male identification.  Develops interests in sports.  To gain co-operation from child one must show interest in his interests. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  •  Explain each treatment procedure.  If you show care for young patient , he will care for you being co-operative.  Female child of 10-13yrs quite different from boys.  She is giggly, silly, extremely vain and passionately interested in her developing body. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  •  Some times it may end up with CRUSH SYNDROME– which is difficult management problem.  This behavior must be discouraged, but bluntness will hurt child psychologically.  Substitute reality for fantasy, remain cordial and friendly talk about real world www.indiandentalacademy.com

  •  Girls reported greater willingness to cooperate with orthodontic treatment than did boys.  Furthermore, mothers reported that their children would be more cooperative with treatment than did the fathers.  Mothers were also more motivated for their child to have braces than were fathers. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • PATIENT COMPLIANCE AND ORTHODONTIC TREATMENT  Patient psychology and compliance are important factors in the treatment protocol. Patient compliance appears to be a complex issue that cannot easily be predicted before treatment .  There is an incidental psychological gain through orthodontic treatment.  Shin-Jae Lee et al “ Patient compliance and locus of control in orthodontic treatment: A prospective study” Am J Orthod Dentofacial Orthop 2008;133:354-8) www.indiandentalacademy.com
  •  Compliance is not related to patient satisfaction in the long run.  Sex is a significant predictor for patient satisfaction regarding the doctor-patient relationship and the situational aspects of the treatment.  Treatment time for female subjects would be longer than for male subjects, even though actual treatment time showed no differences.  Annemieke bos et al Patient compliance: A determinant of patient satisfaction? Angle orthod 2005; 75:526–531 www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • Effect of behavior modification on patient compliance in orthodontics. David Richeter et al , Angle Orthod 1998,68(2) 123-132  Study the effects of reward system for improving patient compliance.  Above average compliance group remained unchanged.  Below average improved with rewards , however never reached above average.  Age and sex – no influence. www.indiandentalacademy.com
  • CONCLUSION Old men can make war, but it is children who will make history. www.indiandentalacademy.com
