How can I get over my fear of the dentist
Hello Jenny. I have a fear of dentists , the needles and my mind is creative. I will picture what they are doing and they scares me , what would you advise :) ?
So its the thought of the procedures that is causing your mind to go into overdrive imagining the worst !.
If you know you need to see a dentist then first of all just visualise ringing the surgery , arriving at the practice , then talking to the dentist . BUT dont go any further than that . If you find yourself imaging the procedures then try to practice thought stopping and do something to take your mind off it .
Let the dentist know about your needle fears , then they can help you with that
Hope this helps
