Hynotherapy considered for pain alleviation in dentistry

A growing number of organisations are promoting the use of hypnotherapy in dentistry as a means to alleviate pain, reports Worldental.org.
A rising number of anecdotal cases suggest that hypnosis could replace other methods of pain relief - like injecting anaesthesia medication - when practised by trained professionals.This is because hypnosis "can be used as a means to tell your subconscious that 'the drill will not hurt', or that 'the tooth extraction is a fast and painless process'," for example.Some bodies, like the International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association, are so convinced in its ability to help patients that they are advocating the provision of hypnotherapy courses in complementary health care.Similarly, the USC School of Dentistry (University of South Carolina) is teaching students hypnosis that can be used as an alternative to Novocain injections - the oldest injectable local anaesthetic still in use.
