Overcome Dental Fear

Overcome Dental Fear

What is it about?

It has been reported that more than 75% of people harbour fears of going to dentists. Dental procedures seem to invoke various stresses and anxieties such as nervousness and sometimes irrational fear in patients which will ultimately dictate either success or failure of the treatments. For some, it can be a truly painful and frightening experience.

However, one should not avoid dental treatment as it can dictate our dental and even overall health.

What are the symptoms?

Dentists have seen a variety of problems such as sweatiness, shortness of breath, cold hands, neck aches, dizziness, nausea, tightening of the jaw and even trauma. Although anaesthesia is commonly used, it only makes the patient physically unconscious and does not take away the underlying stress and its symptoms and therefore may not have the desired outcome. This includes the fact that there are some unwanted side effects and patients often need a lengthy period of time to recover from the effects of anaesthesia.

If the anxieties are not addressed properly, it can get worse and worse until irrational fear sets in. When the fear becomes so deep seated, the person’s health will suffer as a result of deteriorating dental problems, requiring even more dental work and perhaps full medical attention.

What are the causes?

There are many sources which contribute to the fear. Some of them are:

  • Past negative experience
  • Fear of pain
  • Fear of needles
  • Feeling of lack of control or helplessness in the dentist chair
  • Aversion to the dentist’s white coat, rubber gloves and mask
  • Sense of embarrassment arising from personal dental hygiene
  • Careless remarks from other people concerning dental experiences

At the same time, the clinical environment and the sounds of the dental instruments may also add to the patient’s distress.

Why hypnosis?

It is unfortunate that not many are aware of hypnosis and hypnotherapy and its effectiveness in dental work. In fact for many years, hypnosis has been used by dental professionals for a variety of applications although not all dentists are trained in hypnosis for patient treatment.

It is most commonly used as an analgesic or anaesthetic to reduce or eliminate pain, swelling or even blood loss although it can also be used for other applications such as controlling jaw muscle spasms, mouth opening, salivation, body tension, nausea, etc.

As hypnosis is an effective tool for helping the mind to control itself, your hypnotherapist will help relax you mentally and desensitise your emotional fear and anxiety of going to the dentist so that you will be emotionally relaxed. By desensitising, it stops the nerve cells in the brain from firing which causes the fear.

Without the nerve cells firing, your hypnotherapist will help you to break the old associations and reactions by learning new thought patterns, behaviours and responses, thus breaking the bonds that have held you back. In a manner of speaking, your brain will learn new positive responses and the end result will be a permanent one.

How will you benefit from hypnotherapy?

  • It eradicates the anxiety, fear, tension, discomfort and even pain.
  • It reduces or eliminates the use of anaesthesia and its side effects.
  • It helps control the patient’s saliva flow and jaw muscles.
  • It helps reduce bleeding.
  • Above all, it makes going to the dentist a comfortable and productive one.
