Many people are apprehensive about going to see the dentist, and may dread having a procedure done. Whether it’s the tools, or the possibility of pain, many people are so afraid of the dentist that they ignore problems and dental warning signs until they absolutely have to have something done.
What’s even more disconcerting is that tooth decay and gum disease can cause serious and potentially deadly conditions like heart disease, stroke, and even issues like chronic pain. It’s important that you do not ignore dental issues and oral health.
But how can you get past your dental fears and anxiety? Hypnosis eliminates your fears and helps you overcome anxiety that is preventing you from taking care of your health.
If your anxiety stems from some event or situation in your past, it is recorded in your subconscious. This means that even if you consciously tell yourself that you won’t be afraid, your subconscious tells you different. For most people, their fear is rooted in a bad dental experience. Maybe they saw or heard someone suffer pain while in the dentist chair, or maybe you had negative experience, like having a cavity filled before the anesthesia kicked in, or some other painful procedure. This event is stored deep in the subconscious, even if you don’t remember it. The subconscious then uses this ‘memory’ to influence how you feel about the dentist today. Sometimes, the event wasn’t even as severe as the subconscious ‘remembers’ it, the situation has simply been exaggerated by your mind.
No matter what is causing your dental anxiety, hypnosis will reprogram how your subconscious ‘remembers’ the event or situation, so that it isn’t viewed as something you need to fear today. While in hypnosis, positive suggestions can be given to the subconscious that can further reduce your anxiety and even make you completely comfortable with the idea of seeing the dentist and having routine dental work performed.
Hypnosis is safe and completely natural, and odds are you have experienced hypnosis many times in your life. If you have ever read a book, or engaged in a hobby or task and lost track of time, then you have experienced hypnosis.
Once in hypnosis, we are able to determine what created the fearful subconscious memory, and then change how your mind views that event, so your fears and dental anxiety can be released. We then place positive suggestions in the subconscious that help you feel relaxed, calm, and fearless about dentists and dental procedures.
We help your subconscious understand that there is no reason to have fear and anxiety over a past negative event. In as little as one or two sessions, the NY Hypnosis Institute is able to eliminate your dental fears and help you feel confident and comfortable so you can take care of your oral health, dental needs, and health in general.
