Does going to the dentist make you feel anxious?
If you find that going to the dentist causes you to feel anxious, you are not alone. It is estimated that approximately 45% to 58% of all patients attending for dental treatment will exhibit symptoms of anxiety either prior to or on entry to the dental environment. For some, these symptoms are severe and are expressed as an overt dental phobia that will lead to avoidance of dental treatment resulting in deterioration of the patient’s dental health. In fact, 5.5 million people in the UK suffer from dental phobias. However, it is not something that you have to live with. It can be overcome.
Hypnotherapy is a safe, effective treatment option that can enable you to overcome your anxieties in a short space of time. Fears that may stop you attending for dental appointments may include:
- Fear of the dentist
- Fear of pain
- Fear of blood
- Fear of needles
- Fear of dental equipment
With hypnosis, we can safely retrain your nervous system to respond calmly to any fear that you may have as well as giving you the tools to create a sense of calm in any area of your life.
