Hypnosis has been shown to assist in treatment and maintaining a number of dental issues such as bruxism (teethgrinding) and temporomandibular joint issues ( clenching).
Because Albury Wodonga has limited access to certain services there are few individuals who treat the psychological aspects of these conditions. Most treatment focuses on harm minimization, such as mouth guards to stop damage to teeth. Hypnosis and mindfulness are fantastic tools in treating these conditions, as they often occur out of conscious awareness and at night.
Hypnosis can assist with:
- Stress and anxiety
- Dental phobias
- Dental pain
- Dental procedures
Due to the quick nature of treatment most people begin to get results in 3 sessions with most finishing before 6 sessions. If we look at the long term cost of what TMJ and Bruxism can do, costing thousands to have teeth repaired, may find this a viable option. Furthermore if the condition or procedure creates long term issues many have to travel away from Albury Wodonga for specialists and appointments.
I have training from leaders in the field and supervision over a number of years in dealing with and addressing these issues. I work closely with dentists, orthodontists and myofascial specialists in Albury, Wodonga, Wagga Wagga and Wangaratta to provide a wrap around care approach to all of my clients.
Most of all these these methods are safe and evidence based with no negative side effects, giving peace of mind and comfort. If this is something you’d like to learn more about or book an appointment please contact me today.
