“Dr. Karibe believes that the findings can help develop new cognitive behaviour therapy (CBT) methods focused on dealing with these parts of the brain. A Crawley dentist like those practicing at Broadway Dental Care, is no stranger to CBT in dealing with dental anxiety. In fact, it’s the method of choice by many dentists and psychologists.
Simple CBT techniques involve listening to patients’ concerns regarding dental procedures. In one study, it was found that patients who had to rely on sedation dentistry to alleviate dental phobia only needed some pep talk from the professionals to feel at ease. This resulted in a long-term feeling of security that made dental fear a thing of the past for the patients.”
