People who are terrified to go to the dentist may put of their visit for 20 years or more and only contemplate making an appointment when they are driven to by severe toothache or extreme concern about the state of their teeth. On investigation, in many cases it is found that the patient has had a traumatic experience when visiting the dentist as a child.

Hypnotherapy is very valuable in assisting these patients to counteract their fears and in enabling them to visit their dentist for treatment without anxiety.

There are a number of dentists who use hypnotherapy routinely in their practice not only for allaying anxiety but also for pain control.
