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

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