Dental care under hypnosis

Dental care under hypnosis helps with stress as well as adjustment to prosthetics.

In dental care under hypnosis, the dentist hypnotises the patient before commencing treatment procedures. Hypnosis can be used for alleviating dental fear, but it can also help in the treatment of temporomandibular joint problems or adjusting to new prosthetics.

Hypnosis treatment aims to get the patient in a state of relaxation, with part of the anxiety disappearing by itself. Pleasant mental images can be created at the same time, to which thoughts are moved for the duration of dental care.

With suitable guidance, almost anyone can reach hypnosis if they are willing. The depth of the state differs between different people, and even the same person can experience different depths at different times.

In hypnosis treatment, the person does not lose consciousness or their own will; they are fully conscious and able to communicate normally throughout the treatment. No one can be hypnotised to act in violation of their own will or morals, and everyone returns from hypnosis to a normal awoken state. You cannot get stuck in a state of hypnosis.

The service process

The appointment begins by hypnotising the patient. A relatively light state of hypnosis serves many practical treatment purposes. In some treatment cases, deeper states of hypnosis are necessary to achieve certain phenomena. Once the patient is in the desired state of relaxation, the care procedures are begun. At the end of the treatment, the patient is awoken from the hypnosis.

When should I make an appointment for this service?

Hypnosis treatment is an option whenever you feel anxious or afraid of seeing the dentist. You can also seek hypnosis treatment due to pain, such as temporomandibular joint problems.

What should I take into account when making the appointment?

Hypnosis treatment is available to a limited extent at Oral.
