Many people don’t like going to the dentist. They have fears and an extreme aversion to visiting the “chair of horror”, as they associate it with pain, unpleasant noises and operations.

For this reason, many dental practices have added another service to their range in recent years: hypnosis. It also proves to be extremely helpful in many other anxiety issues and aversions, and can even help wounds to heal more quickly. Hansruedi Wipf has summarized this in his new YouTube video.

The demand from dentists for further training in hypnosis therapy is increasing immensely, as treatments are obviously easier and more pleasant for all involved if patients can get their fear under control.

Apart from regulating or even eliminating anxiety, hypnosis can also reduce salivation and gag reflexes by positively influencing the subconscious. This means that even extreme cases can ultimately find a visit to the dentist pleasant or at least no longer a hellish ordeal.

A large number of dental practices that use our OMNI hypnosis in their day-to-day treatment or bring in external hypnotists for this purpose report great successes and satisfied patients.

Hypnosis in dentistry – effectively helping anxiety patients

So to summarize, hypnosis in the dental practice has the following advantages:

  • Calmer patients
  • More relaxed working atmosphere
  • Saving resources
  • Reduced salivation and gag reflex during treatment
  • Shorter treatment times
  • Faster wound healing
  • Reduced use of anesthetic drugs

Let’s be honest: what dentist isn’t happy when both patients and staff are more relaxed in their day-to-day work?

In addition, the number of studies on pain and anxiety relief through hypnosis is increasing. The results are certainly positive.

What does hypnosis look like in dentistry?

It is worth noting that this technique is not the type of hypnosis that people often think of. Of course, dentists do not handle the pendulum in front of their patients’ noses or perform any rituals that would only unsettle their patients.

Hypnosis is a craft and a technique. A method such as the OMNI method is very clearly structured and follows a clear process.

In the OMNI hypnosis training our aim is to teach at the highest level.

This enables our graduates to put their patients into a trance-like state in which, among other things, the sensation of pain and physical stress symptoms are reduced.

We also train our graduates to guide their clients in hypnosis to the source – for example an anxiety issue – and neutralize the cause there. (More information)

This often means that the injection mentioned at the beginning can be dispensed with or the administration of anesthetics can be reduced. Of course, there is no law that says that medication is fundamentally bad and only hypnosis is good. But – if we think of pregnant women, for example – reducing the amount of medication given is always desirable.

The principle should apply: As much as necessary, as little as possible.
