It could be argued that a fear or phobia of going to a dentist would be the most common fear of otherwise strong and wise adults. Without delving into the shared reasons for that fear, like all fears, it is a learned unconscious response. Some people have an anxiety attack when confronted with the thought of a visit to the dentist. It is a fight or flight scenario.
But does it have to be this way?
Hypnotherapy is a very effective modality in removing that fear so that a trip to the dentist can be as simple as a stroll along the beach. One session of hypnotherapy … that is all you need to be empowered to take control of your emotional responses. The test for me is fast approaching.
I am off to the dentist tomorrow to have two wisdom teeth extracted and I will be fully armed with my self hypnosis resources.
Hypnotherapy can assist in dental problem areas such as:
a) gag reflex
b) fear of dentist
c) bruxism (teeth grinding)
d) TMJ tension (holding stress in the jaw)
e) Anaesthesia allergy (learn glove anaesthesia)
Some of the health benefits of good dental hygiene are:
a) boost self esteem and confidence – a big smile
b) lower risk of heart disease – chronic inflammation of gums associated with heart disease, blockage of blood vessels and strokes.
c) Preserve your memory – adults with history of gingivitis performed worse on memory and cognitive skills testing than those with healthy gums.
d) Reduce infections in other parts of the body.
e) Better gum care can reduce risk of uncontrolled diabetes.
Don’t put off a visit to the dentist because of an out of control fear. Have a session of hypnotherapy and enjoy a lifetime of positive dentist experiences. Your teeth and body will thank you for it. Call NOW to get relief for your dental anxiety.
