Toothbrush - Unwanted Oral Habits

Do you have a bad habit that may be damaging your smile?

Do you find yourself sucking your thumb? Do you have a habit of biting your nails? Does tongue thrusting negatively impact on your dental health?

There are a wide range of habits that seem harmless enough but can actually have a negative impact on your teeth and overall oral hygiene.

You may not even be aware that you are engaging in one of these habits until you catch yourself in the act or it’s pointed out to you. Habits are unconscious behaviours. They are established at some point in our lives and then just become a part of who we are. But habits can be overcome quickly and successfully.

Using hypnosis, we work with the unconscious part of the mind. This is the part of your mind that does practically everything. It stores your feelings, thoughts, habits, behaviours, etc and plays them all out automatically without you needing to be conscious of any of them.

To combat a bad habit, we use positive suggestions that eliminate the behaviour and replace the positive intention with a healthier behaviour. Once the unconscious mind has accept these suggestions, change occurs quickly.
