If you have a fear and phobia of the dentist, you’re certainly not alone. In fact, one in four patients dreads their visit to the dentist. This usually stems from traumatic or painful dental experiences from childhood. But the good news is that today, you can finally experience a whole new level of comfort and ease while getting the treatment you need to keep your oral health in good shape.
At Teal Umbrella, we take the comfort and care of our patients seriously and always strive to make every visit as pleasant as possible, which is why we now offer a specialized Comfort Menu. So if you’ve been suffering from dental stress, here’s how our complimentary menu can help.
Easing Your Tension in the Dentist’s Chair
We’re always striving to ease the stress and tension that some patients experience when it’s time for a dental check-up or treatment. And, we understand that hanging out in the chair for an extended period of time can be a little uncomfortable and even unnerving. That’s why we offer a variety of items on our complimentary Comfort Menu that are aimed to help alleviate your anxiety. Some items that you may enjoy include our Anti-Stress Warm Comfort Wrap, Neck Warmer, cozy blankets for the kids, and even a stress ball when you need something to squeeze.
Eliminating Sounds From Equipment
One of the most common issues we hear about when it comes to understanding our patient’s dental fears is the sound of the tools and instruments that are used during treatments and cleanings. If this is the case for you, you can use foam earplugs to dull out the sounds or even enjoy a wide selection of relaxing music from our Mp3 players that are available when you check in. So rather than listening to the whizzing sounds from the dentist, you can lay back and enjoy soothing music to drown it all out.
Keeping Your Eyes Covered and Relaxed
As dentists, we understand how awkward it can be to have nowhere to look but up at our faces or at the ceiling during your treatment. And sometimes it can be stressful enough to see what weird looking instruments are being used in your mouth, too. Well, now you can take comfort with our Rest Eye Masks that block out the light (and view) and allow you to relax without having to stare up at the ceiling or see what’s happening down below in your mouth.
If you feel the grip of fear set in each time you think about the dentist, give us a call! At Teal Umbrella, your comfort matters to us. We are committed to making each and every visit for our patients as stress-free and relaxing as possible.
With our Comfort Menu items, we have helped so many patients shed their anxiety so they can get the treatments they need, and we know that we can help you, too! Contact us today to learn more or to set up an appointment.
