Hypnotherapy has earned respect within the dental community. In fact the University of Southern California School of Dentistry offers a course in hypnotherapy.

By accessing the subconscious mind, hypnotherapy can also help some patients to control pain, reduce salivation, control bleeding and gagging, and stop teeth grinding, and may aid with breathing problems.
