The use of hypnosis within hypnotherapy can be very a effective aid to reduce anxiety and fear about dentistry and make the overall experience much more manageable and comfortable. There are a variety of approaches which hypnotherapists can use depending upon the specific nature of the problem.
People's fears and anxieties around dentists / dentistrymay sometimes have their origins in an unfortunate early experience often during childhood, though the start of anxieties can also occur at any time later in our lives. The actual focus of the fears can also vary significantly. Some of the common ones are:
As with other anxieties and fears part of the problem is that once we have experieced fear/anxietyin a particular situation our minds create an association and we come to anticipate the same reaction. This anticipation in itself creates fear and anxiety and we end up with a fear of the experience of fear which can create a vicious circle which it becomes hard to break.
Such fears and anxieties can create a situation where a person is in a state of agitation and anxiety long before a dental visit. The experience of sitting in a dentist's waiting room prior to seeing the dentist can become a traumatic event in itself. In serious cases people can develop a phobia about visiting the dentist. This can result in visits that are too infrequent or total avoidance. In either event the effects on the health of teeth and gums iis detrimental.
A thorough assessment is essential to determine the factors which are affecting you in order to devise a programme of hypnotherapy tailored to your individual needs.
An assessment may include some of the following:
Depending upon the above we will then agree a programme of hypnotherapyto help you to overcome the anxieties / fear of dentistry and to build your confidence that the experience can be much more relaxed, comfortable and manageable. This could include:
The above is not exhaustive but will give you an indication of the general approach. All of the above would involve the use of direct and indirect suggestions, visualisation, imagery, etc. Because we are working together with your unconscious mind we are tapping into resources to help you change which are usually not easily accessible to your conscious mind.
The number of sessions required is likely to be three to four depending upon the degree of the anxiety. Please see the Hypnotherapy Fees Page for details of fees.
