You need to be extremely careful however, because there are many self proclaimed, fake dental spas available where the only spa-like features are a flat screen TV and a lavender scent in the room. A truly high class dental spa is a facility which resembles nothing like a dental office.
You can see a typical Feng Shui atmosphere everywhere, and besides the licensed dentists and cosmetic surgeons, here you will be welcomed by highly trained and skilled beauticians and massage therapists too. The main point of a dental SPA is to make the patient feel comfortable and relaxed all the way through the dental treatment. You should feel more like at a beauty parlor than at a medical facility.
Some of the complimentary SPA treatments at such a facility include hand and feet massage, paraffin wax hand treatments, massaging dental chairs, aromatherapy, hot stone body massage heated and scented eye and neck pillows, heated face cloths, hand lotions + massage. Moreover, patients can sip an aromatic tea or natural juice before or after the appointment.
The dental SPA owners will do everything possible to help the patient relax and forget about the dental fear and anxiety typically associated with going to the regular dental office. Some of the most high class dental spas even feature lavish water fountains, relaxing sounds all over the place and huge flat screen TVs where patients can enjoy watching a nice movie or listening to music through the headphones.
This pampering definitely comes with a price, so dental treatments at a dental SPA are much more expensive than treatments in a private dental office. The lights are dimmed, the place is filled with fresh flowers and you will receive a herbal eyelid compress that will go over your eyes for maximum relaxation.
Tips on selecting a dental SPA:
-if you decided that you want to get your root canal in a dental SPA, you need to ensure that you will indeed be treated in a SPA facility and not a spa-like dental office. Check out the available dental spas in your area, and make sure to read everything carefully that is displayed on the main website. There is a huge difference between a spa-like atmosphere and a facility where they truly offer spa services such as massages, aromatherapy sessions, light therapy, and so on
-don’t be impressed by the beautiful words in the description. After all, you are going to the spa because you need to go through that dental treatment and you want to ease your fears. Therefore, make sure the dentist working at that SPA is a truly experienced professional offering top quality dental health services. Read online reviews and testimonials and try to make a well informed decision.
