Fear of the Dentist / Dental Phobia Hypnotherapy for Dental Anxiety

Phobia of Dentist- A Common Issue

fear of the dentist
Even with today’s advances in modern painless dentistry, a large percentage of the general population continues to experience fear of the dentist. Indeed, phobia of the dentist is far more widespread than is generally acknowledged, with 1 in 4 people admitting that they have a real fear of the dentist.

For some, the very thought of visiting the dentist is enough to cause butterflies in the stomach, sweaty palms, or anxious, shaky shivers running down the spine.

Fear of the dentist can prevent a person from getting the treatment they need in order to maintain good oral health. This can have serious consequences, affecting the ability to properly chew food, which in turn can impact on other areas of health.

Many people with a fear of the dentist avoid dental visits and the result is decayed teeth, gum disease, mouth abscesses, bad breath and terrible pain – not to mention the loss of a great smile. Without good oral health, speech can also be affected.

As if all this were not enough, self confidence can also be undermined simply because the dental phobic person is insecure about his or her smile and breath. Needless to say, this can lead to serious limitations in both social and work environments.

Hypnotherapy for Dental Anxiety

No one is really condemned to suffer from dental anxiety, phobia of dentists, or a fear of the dentist that prevents them from having a healthy mouth and a great smile.

For some, it is the feeling of losing control, of being vulnerable or helpless when reclining in the dentist’s chair that creates the anxiety. Whether it’s a difficult childhood memory, the idea that dental treatment will hurt, fear of injections, or of the dentist’s drill – or the sights, smells and sounds that are associated with a visit to the dentist – hypnotherapy can be enormously helpful in removing dental phobia and eradicating fear of the dentist.

How to Overcome Fear of the Dentist Effective Dental Anxiety Treatment

The origins of dental phobia can be previously painful or negative experiences of dental procedures, which may even include negative comments made by a dentist or a dental nurse during treatment. Other sources include hearing scary stories of dental visits from family or friends, and a general fear of the unknown.

It really isn’t necessary for the person with a dental phobia to be consciously aware of, or remember the origin of the fear. The subconscious mind has the answer to this.

Few people who are afraid of the dentist realize how simple it is to let go of their fear. In my experience very few dentists fully understand how to remove a severe dental phobia, though they may know how to ameliorate or lessen it. The fact is that fear of the dentist is a conditioned response, the product of a sensitizing event in the past that has linked feelings of fear with dentists and dental procedures.

Using advanced hypnotherapeutic strategies, we can re-write the script and reverse the conditioning, thereby removing the irrational dental phobia and conditioned fear response.
