Tips To Help You Relax Naturally From Our Elmhurst Sedation Dentist

For many people the mere thought of dental treatment produces anxiety and stress. Unfortunately, this can keep people from getting necessary dental treatment in a timely manner. In order to help alleviate this problem, our Elmhurst sedation dentists offer treatments to help you relax.

Some of these treatments involve using medication to put you at ease. If, however, you are looking for a medication-free way to ease tension, we have some tips for you, too!

Before you even start the dental treatment process it is very important that you communicate with your dental team about your concerns, and you treatment goals. The more familiar you are with your dentist, and he or she with you, the better off you’ll be.

Once you are ready to begin treatment, you can use dental spa therapy treatments to naturally put you at ease. Our dentists are proud to offer dental spa therapy to patients of many ages.

Here are some of the treatments that are commonly used in dental spa therapy:

· Soothing interior design

· Massage

· Aromatherapy

· Calming music

· Chiropractic manipulation

· Supplements

· Acupressure

One of the great things about dental spa therapy is that our dental team can personalize it to fit your needs, exactly. Many patients who cannot tolerate sedatives, or who simply prefer to avoid medications, find significant stress relief using these natural therapies.

When you meet with our Elmhurst dentists, we can help you decide whether dental spa therapy is right for you. We will take into account:

· Your current level of dental anxiety

· The treatments you are going to undergo

· Any past experiences you may have with sedation
