The Importance Of Patient Comfort
Not too long ago, going to the dentist was synonymous with just having a bad day. Unfortunately, that is still the case for many people who get nervous or afraid of going to the dentist. However, going to the dentist does not have to be an anxiety-inducing, uncomfortable experience. Cosmetic and Implant Dentistry of Kansas City focuses on providing expert dental care with the utmost comfort. Providing a comfortable environment for patients helps ensure a good experience the day of, but most importantly it encourages good dental health. The more likely someone is to go to the dentist, the better off their oral health will be.
Along with investing in modern technology for dental treatment, we have also invested in creating a welcoming luxurious environment for our patients to enjoy. The office is equipped with free WiFi for your use. Each chair has access to a big screen television, the remote for it, and personal headphones. For a more spa-like experience, the dental chairs are heated massage chairs. Blankets, warm towels, eye masks, and pillows are also available for use during your visit. Complimentary tea, coffee, and water is in the lobby for your convenience.
For people with severe dental anxiety, sedation may be the best option to make a dental visit or treatment more comfortable. Dependent on the severity of the anxiety will be the level of sedation. For the most extreme situation, intravenous sedation may be necessary to allow the treatment to happen.
Why Is Comfort Important
The recommendation of visiting the dentist at least twice a year or once every six months is a recommendation that is not followed by everyone. Some people go much longer with a dental exam and their oral health suffers. If you love going to the dentist because it feels like a little getaway, you will feel more likely to keep the recommended amount of visits, which can lead to a much healthier smile.
