Most people don’t like going to the dentist. But for some people, they have a dental phobia. The potential reasons are numerous but whatever the reason, you could overcome a dental phobia. There are many treatment options and your very health could depend on it!
The trained psychotherapists at Bayside Psychotherapy can help you overcome a dental phobia. Whether you suffer from mild anxiety when it comes to going to the dentist or full blown panic attacks and terror, our therapists can help you feel safe and comfortable with having a dental consultation and even having dental surgery.
How can we help you with your fear of going to the dentist? Our therapists help you tackle your issues through online counselling sessions via a free tool called Skype, which allows us to have private counselling sessions. Self hypnosis can also be a valuable tool and you can download recommended hypnosis recordings further down this page to help you overcome phobias, fears, and anxiety by simply listening.

Let’s work together to help you combat your dentist phobia!
There are a lot of reasons for fear of the dentist or dental procedures. It can stem from an unrelated trauma, or a painful experience in a dentist’s chair, or even vicariously. It can also be related to feeling a loss of control when in someone else’s hands. Regardless of the root cause, you can overcome this fear and you need to do so.
Good oral care is essential to your overall health and the longer your teeth are left untreated, the worse off you’ll be. It’s time to take control and let your dentist help you. Some dentists offer special treatments such as dentistry while asleep or sedating medication to relax you but for most people who suffer from dental phobia, the fear starts well before entering that dentist’s chair and that’s what is stopping them from getting to the office in the first place. A combination of treatments and self hypnosis recordings can make a measurable difference.
How long will dental phobia treatment take?
No two patients are identical so while there is no way to put a deadline on overcoming any phobia, you can look forward to results, depending on your willingness to participate in your treatment. No one can promise overnight results but we can promise that we will work with you to find the best treatment possible for you.
