Hypnosis can help with dental anxiety. First, be sure you have a dentist who is sympathetic as well as skillful. A hypnosis CD can get you over your anxiety. You can also use hypnotic suggestions to tell yourself you are relaxed when you go to the dentist, and that the time passes quickly. You don't have to tell yourself how important it is to care for your teeth. You already know that. You can emphasize how much better you feel and look when your teeth are cared for. When you are at the dentist's for your examination, tell him or her you will be working on relaxation and stress management while you are there, and do so.
