Hi there,


I am Mysticdoc, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.


I am here to help you with your concerns.

mysticdoc :

Hypnotism has been used to treat clenching or teeth grinding successfully in some cases.

mysticdoc :

There are few studies to prove this point.

mysticdoc :

However, there is still no large scale clinical study to prove the efficacy of hypnotism.

mysticdoc :

Hence, there is no general recommendation for this mode of therapy.

mysticdoc :

However, hypnotism does not require any medication, involves strategies changing the behavioral aspects causing clenching.

mysticdoc :

Hence, this is worthwhile to consider as an option.

mysticdoc :

Hence, you can look for a qualified hypnotist in this field.
