Nervous patients and Hypnosis

Why are people phobic or fearful of the dentist?

Did you know that 1 in 4 of the population is affected by dental fear or phobia? While fear is just a reaction to danger, phobia is an irrational fear accompanied by the feelings of panic, loss of control and anxiety. It can have a dramatic effect on a person’s health and quality of life. Neglect can lead to bad oral hygiene, dental pain and eventually tooth loss.

Fear of the dentist can come from negative experiences such as:-

  • A previous painful visit to the dentist
  • Hearing sounds coming from the surgery
  • Insensitive comments from family and friends
  • Not having a feeling of control while in the chair

In today’s society teeth play an important part in a persons physical appearance. Unsightly and uncared for teeth can lead to problems with confidence and self-esteem. Don’t stop your fear stop you from getting a healthy, bright smile.

At Rugby Dental Care our Principal Sima Rahimi is passionate about helping those who suffer from dental fear or phobia. Having spent several years training and studying Sima now incorporates hypnosis into her treatment plan for those who need her help.

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a deep state of relaxation. It cannot be carried out against someone’s will, they have to want to cooperate. The subconscious mind is more receptive to suggestions in this state. Therefore with the use of carefully selected language positive suggestions are made to the patient who will achieve a desired effect and bring about a progressive change.

Sima Rahimi has been successful in treating a number of our dental phobic patients, who have been happy to write testimonials to this effect.

Sima quotes:

“My experience treating patients who are nervous or phobic means I can appreciate what a major step coming to the dentist can be. Therefore it is important to make the patient feel comfortable and in control at all times. As well as hypnosis we use the most up to date technology to administer local anaesthetic using the painless magic wand.”

Sima Rahimi is a member of the British Society of Clinical and Academic Hypnosis.
