Hypnosis of preschool age children for anxiety reduction in dentistry - Hypnosis of preschool age children for anxiety reduction in dentistry. A non-verbal hypnotic induction technique for three year old children at their first dental visit rapidly reduces anxiety. The mind set is done via pre-mailed printed materials. The induction sequence is as follows: Adjust shoes and socks, examine fingers, measure height, assist arm levitation, and praise. The key is to allow the child to feel in control, while the dentist acts as a guide. Proceeding against a child’s will, destroys hard earned trust forever. Technical procedures require detailed progressive desensitization. Operator patience and painless techniques are most important.

Key words: hypnosis, children, non-verbal, dentist, progressive, desensitization.

Parole chiave: ipnosi, bambini, non-verbale, dentista, desensibilizzazione progressiva.
