You know that you need good dental care but unless you can stop your fear of dentists it will cause you to keep putting off those appointments.
You want to keep your teeth in tip top condition but your dentist phobia means that you positively dread having someone poking and prodding around your mouth, then making you slurp down some sort of fluoride goop that tastes like a cross between bubble gum and Tylenol.
Stop Your Fear of Dentists
One way to help stop your fear of dentists is to ask to be “put under” while they drill away. That way, once the anesthetic has started to work, you'll be unconscious while your dentist does their work. This can work but it's an extreme solution – one that you should really only consider if you do not have time to work out any other solution for your dentist phobia. And you may need to change dentists as not all are authorized to perform this kind of operation.
Another way is to take a trusted friend with you to legally hold your hand while the dentist performs his or her duty.
If you have more time available, you can stop your fear of dentists in its tracks by using the ancient art of hypnosis.
Trips to the dentist are never fun. After all, who would voluntarily go to lie down on a chair with a dentist scraping and prodding away at your precious teeth? Sometimes even thinking about a trip to the dentist can bring on your fear of dentists. You start thinking about cavities, fills, drills, needles. And your dentist phobia comes up full strength!
Through hypnosis, you can stop your fear of dentists and allow a trained professional to help you keep your teeth in pristine condition. Your dental phobia will be banished to the past, where it belongs.
All you need to do is listen to one simple MP3 track. You can do this in the comfort of your own home, perhaps listening on your iPod, well away from the source of your dentist phobia.
Hypnosis is a method where you can reach a deep state of relaxation. Once that state is reached, your subconscious mind will be given a series of suggestions which will help you to stop your fear of dentists. Many people all over the world have overcome their dentist phobia with hypnosis. It's one of the most cost-effective treatments that you can find. You do not even need to take a trip to a professional hypnotherapist – there are many CDs and MP3s out there that will do the trick for less than the cost of your next checkup.
You owe it to yourself to keep your teeth in pristine condition. If you suffer from dentist phobia then you need to find a way to stop your fear of dentists in its tracks.
