Written by Dr. Scharfenberg on Aug 12, 2014

Our Elmhurst sedation dentist office strives to help every person we treat feel calm, confident, and even excited about dental treatment. We know that some patients need a little extra boost in order to get the dental treatment that they need. That is why we are so proud to offer dental spa therapy in our office. Let’s learn more about how dental spa therapy works, and whom it can help. 

Q: What does dental spa therapy entail? 
A: Dental spa therapy combines different relaxing therapies in order to create a calming dental experience for the patient. Some common treatments include massage therapy, aromatherapy, soothing music and sounds, chiropractic treatment, and acupressure. Using these therapies together helps bring the patient in to a light early stage of sleep, which lowers his or her heart rate and stress level. 

Q: Does dental spa therapy require me to take medication?
A: No! One of the major benefits of dental spa therapy is that it is totally medication free. This treatment protocol uses holistic, body-friendly treatments to provide you with a positive dental experience. 

Q: Is dental spa therapy safe?
A: Yes, this is a very safe relaxation option for patients of many ages. If you have any existing health concerns, please discuss these with our dental team. We will make sure that your dental spa therapy experience is customized to be appropriate for your current health status.
