Dental Suite - Bruxism Hypnosis

Do you wake up with Jaw Pain and Headaches?

Bruxism (teeth grinding) is a condition that affects on average 8-10% of the UK population at any one time. It can lead to facial pain, headaches, an aching jaw and increased sensitivity in the teeth which can often lead to costly dental procedures.

If you are struggling with bruxism, then hypnotherapy may be the answer for you.

Teeth grinding is an unconscious habit and occurs for one of two reasons:

  1. No underlying cause – it has simply become an unconscious behaviour in its own right and continues to play out on its own
  2. A symptom of another psychological or mental condition – A side effect of high stress, anger or anxiety

Hypnotherapy is a safe and effective treatment option for both causes of bruxism and can help in the following ways:

Hypnosis works with the unconscious mind which is the part of your mind that plays out all habitual behaviour. Through visualisations and suggestions offered whilst in a state of focused concentration, behaviours can be changed to more empowering alternatives.

Stress and anxiety management. Hypnosis is in itself a state of relaxation. By entering a trance, you are already in a deeply relaxed state. This state can then be anchored to a trigger of your choosing so that you can naturally recreate this calmness.
