Frequently Asked Questions about Hypnosis in Dentistry

Why should I consider hypnosis?

If you are interested in exploring a different way to conquer dental fear and anxiety that will find solutions to self-sabotaging, negative or limiting beliefs or to create a sense of peace and harmony that allows you to tackle challenges more positively, hypnosis could be a great tool for you.

What is hypnosis?

It is a natural state that we undergo frequently, if not daily, but goes unnoticed. It is not what you see in films or on TV.

Is hypnosis safe?

How does hypnosis work?

While you are under hypnosis, your conscious mind and body are relaxed, and the subconscious mind is in a heightened state of activity, allowing it to receive positive suggestions.
