Does Hypnosis Work for Dental Anxiety?

Imagine lying in the dental chair, deeply relaxed and comfortable, losing track of time and just enjoying how good you feel. You are aware that the dentist is working in your mouth but you are not aware of any sensation of pain. For you, the visit to the dentist is like visiting a spa.

Just a dream? Not at all! With hypnosis you can make the visits to the dentist a positive and relaxing experience. You will be able to decline traditional pain medication because you are in a nice comfortable hypnotic trance, experiencing the treatments as quite pleasant.

Are you scared of the dentist? Or do you even have a phobia of the dentist? You are not alone. Dentophobia is the fear of the dentist and dental treatments in general. The fear can stem from past negative experiences and is often connected to the pain associated with dentistry. Hypnosis can help you overcome that fear for once and for all!

Do you grind your teeth? Bruxism, the unconscious habit of clenching or grinding your teeth, especially during the night, is another condition for which hypnosis is valuable. The teeth grinding leads to attrition, the premature wearing down of the enamel of your teeth. Side effects can also be jaw pain and migraines due to the straining of the temporal and mandibular muscles. Your dentist might recommend a night guard. Not everybody is comfortable wearing this mouth guard during the night. Why not reprogram the unwanted habit and reducing it with hypnosis?

For some people even the treatments by the dental hygienist are stressful and painful. This is another area were hypnosis can help you to be so comfortable that you can take care of your dental health.
