Hypnosis is a very effective approach to healing dental fear, and imprinting a positive experience.
The use of hypnosis in Dentistry has a long history with the first reported case in 1837 for a tooth extraction. Hypnosis is successfully used for anti-anxiety effects, to increase patient overall comfort, decrease resistance to future treatments, and stimulate more rapid recovery. Many individuals have anxiety about dental procedures, and a fear of needles. Some individuals’ phobias are so serious that pathology is allowed to develop before seeking help. While some anxiety is normal with most dental procedures, higher levels interfere significantly with treatment.
When phobias are more severe, ordinary relaxation procedures are partially and/or inadequately effective, which can contribute to complications. Extractions, root canal procedures, deep filling, and periodontal work can all be made more pleasant and less time-consuming with the use of hypnosis. Hypnosis accelerates healing and recovery through less negative anticipation, less swelling, and less pain. In the case of hemophiliacs, the use of hypnosis is often used to control bleeding.
Hypnosis is also very helpful with children. Enabling children to develop a healthy association with dentistry while still young develops a healthy association of dentistry into adulthood. With my advanced training in Hypnosis for Dentistry, we can reframe past trauma, imprint positive expectation rather than dreaded anticipation. You can learn and apply self-hypnotic skills so that each time you have a treatment, your experience is more easeful and begins to build a new association with the dentist.
Addressing these fears is significant to creating a more peaceful and healthy experience and life. Whether the fear is based in pain, trauma, needles, stories you've been told, past experiences, contacting a skilled and experienced hypnotherapist near you is a wise choice. You can heal this part of your life and leave your appointment feeling relieved and uplifted, no more dread and fear. You might be surprised just how easy it can be for you and your future dental appointments after a few sessions with Hypnosis and NLP.
You have the power within your own brain to solicit the chemicals to relax into a place of peace that hypnosis offers. You have the power within your own brain to reduce discomfort after a procedure, and to experience an approaching dental appointment with ease instead of worry. Once you experience the difference and learn the skills, you will walk through this aspect of your life lighter, with more confidence, and a skillset and knowing that will positive influence the rest of your life.
Accessing the full power of your mind is like turning on the lights of a dark room, and finding that you hold unlimited possibilities. Much is revealed, you have clear direction and regain control, with valuable skills for a lifetime.
