Dental anxiety is surprisingly common, and, unfortunately, damaging for many dental patients. Dentistry-related stress and anxiety keep people from getting the timely treatments they need, and this can lead to the patient requiring more extensive and expensive dental treatments down the road.
One option that our Elmhurst sedation dentists provide to combat dental anxiety is Dental Spa Therapy. Dental Spa Therapy is an all-natural protocol that helps you feel calm and comfortable in the dentist’s chair. Because this relaxation option is totally drug-free, Dental Spa Therapy is appropriate for a wide variety of dental patients.
Dental Spa Therapy is all about creating an environment that puts the patient at ease and allows the patient’s body to enter a naturally calm state. The therapies used in Dental Spa treatment are designed to combat and minimize the patient’s natural stress response.
Here are some of the individual components that are used in Dental Spa Therapy:
· Music therapy and aromatherapy are used to create a calm and peaceful setting in which the patient can relax. You won’t feel like you’re in a normal dental office at all.
· Acupressure, chiropractic treatments, and muscle manipulation help to relax tense muscles and minimize the effects of adrenaline on your system. Muscle tension causes dental patients to become fatigued more quickly during treatment, and it can lead to soreness post-treatment.
· Supplements and holistic medicine support your immune system and reduce your body’s inflammatory response throughout the treatment process. Our dental team talk to you about specific holistic supplements that may be beneficial for you based on your needs and dental plan.
