Dental Anxiety & Phobia


Does just the thought of going to the dentist give you the feeling of overwhelming panic?

You can’t imagine sitting in the chair without sweating or shaking.

The sound of the drill or the smell of disinfectant can give you tight chest, a racing heart and an intense need to escape.

You are not alone!

You know you are overreacting and it’s irrational but you feel powerless to control the fear and can’t do anything about it.

Why Hypnotherapy?

Just imagine happily walking into the dentist’s waiting room, calmly waiting to be called, reading a magazine or looking at your phone.

Imagine having the white fillings, crowns or implants that you have always wanted.

Being in social situations, smiling and feeling confident, talking or eating without pain or worry about appearance.

Hypnotherapy can offer a solution to help get you back in control of your fear.

Tooth Grinding or Clenching

Do you ever wake up in the morning and find that the muscles of your jaw or face ache?  Sometimes developing into a headache, earache or migraine?

Perhaps you find that your teeth are fracturing or wearing away causing increased pain and sensitivity resulting in frequent visits to the dentist and extra financial outlay?

You want to be able to bite into a crisp apple or chew a juicy steak but your jaw clicks frequently or locks and it won’t open or close completely?

You may have a condition called Bruxism where you grind, gnash or clench your teeth

Perhaps your dentist has carried out treatment to correct the problem but despite this you’re still having issues with grinding or clenching your teeth and jaws resulting in pain.


What is Bruxism?

Bruxism can be a subconscious habit related to stress and anxiety where you tighten your jaw muscles and clench and grind your teeth without realising. It may be a coping strategy or a habit during deep concentration.

This can happen during the day (awake bruxism) or at night (sleep bruxism).

Bruxism often happens at night. Your inner mind may remember stressful events which happened during the day and replay them again and again during the night leading to disturbed sleep. 

Hypnotherapy is a safe and effective way to manage this anxiety.

Hypnotherapy can improve your ability to develop more positive coping methods to stress and anxiety which can often be a root cause of Bruxism.
