Fear of the Dentist
Are you filled with a feeling of fear or dread at the thought of visiting the dentist?
An estimated 25 percent of the UK population experience anxiety when visiting the dentist. Being afraid of dental treatment or ‘The Dentist’ is a lot more common than many people realise, it’s just that most people don’t like to talk about it.
It might be that you have a fear of needles and injections and so you’re fearful of dental treatment as well. Or perhaps you’ve experienced painful dental treatment in the past. Dental Phobia as it’s often known, sometimes starts as a result of a bad experience during a dental appointment and it’s not uncommon for people to feel trapped and not in control in the dentist’s chair, especially if they can’t see what’s going on or don’t know what will happen next.
The most effective therapy for you depends on your individual situation. Hypnotherapy can often be helpful for overcoming a fear of the dentist and talking with someone who is impartial and non-judgmental can help you to overcome your fears. Working with your subconscious mind, relaxation and anxiety release techniques can be taught which will enable you to develop a new calmer way of thinking and responding and leave your fear of the dentist in the past.
