Elmhurst Sedation Dentist Explains How Dental Spa Therapy Works

Written by Dr. Scharfenberg on Feb 3, 2014

Our Elmhurst sedation dentist office is committed to providing our patients with the treatments that they need to stay comfortable during dental treatment. Different relaxation dentistry treatments are suitable for different patients—which one is right for you? In order to help you answer this questions, today we are going to review the basics of Dental Spa Therapy.

Let’s get started…

Dental Spa Therapy is an alternative or supplement to some traditional sedation dentistry treatments. Dental Spa Therapy utilizes natural and alternative techniques to sooth dental patients.

Here are some components of Dental Spa Therapy that our dental team uses alone or in conjunction with one another to deliver real results:

Massage: massage therapy helps patients release built up tension, and stay loose and relaxed in the dentist’s chair.

Music Therapy: soothing music is surprisingly effective at helping patients to feel in control and peaceful during dental treatment.

Aromatherapy: this therapy utilizes environmental scent to calm patients’ moods and reduce tension.

Chiropractics: chiropractic practitioners optimize the alignment of the neuromusculoskeletal system. Chiropractic treatment releases pent up tension in the muscles and skeletal system.

Interior Design: from the moment that you step in to our office, you will be put at ease, because our office is specifically designed to be a soothing environment. Calming colors, décor, and lighting will allow you to drift through treatment.

Acupressure: this treatment is built on similar principles as acupuncture. By applying pressure to specific muscles and pressure points, the acupressure practitioner aligns the energies of the body.

When you meet with our dental team, we can help you determine which of these Dental Spa Therapy options will work for you. Please give our Elmhurst dentist office a call to learn more about general dentistry, as well as relaxation dentistry treatments. We look forward to speaking with you!
