There is fresh hope the many people the globe who are terrified going to the dentist. New research suggests that a course counselling can help to overcome the fear sitting in the dentist's chair. The research was conducted the King's College London Dental Institute Health Psychology Service. It focused the effects of cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) in treating dental phobia, also called dentophobia. Researchers discovered that the biggest fears patients were of pain-relieving injections and the dentist's drill. Doctors believe that between six ten sessions of CBT are enough patients to be able to have stress-free visits to a dental surgery and cure this phobia.

Researchers say that 10 per cent of people suffer extreme anxiety about seeing their dentist, which stops many people getting dental treatment. This level anxiety often results more dental problems because people delay going to the dentist until they have a toothache, which time the treatment will be more painful. Three per cent of patients surveyed admitted having thoughts committing suicide rather than seeing a dentist. Lead researcher, professor Tim Newton, said: "The primary goal our CBT service is to enable patients to receive dental treatment without the need sedation, working with each individual patient to set goals according their priorities."
