Want to pamper yourself while you have some dental work done? Well, now you can because spa dentistry is designed to do just that. Gone are the days where anxiety and dread rest alongside your calendar next to the words “dentist appointment.” Spa dentistry can make your visits to the dentist relaxing, peaceful and downright fun.

What is Spa Dentistry?

Spa dentistry is a fairly new trend that combines the comforts of a posh spa with dental visits and treatments. This fairly new technique is designed to offer you complete relaxation as well as a lot of pampering in a spa-like atmosphere right in the dental office.

What Does Spa Dentistry Involve?

While each dental office is different and spa treatments may vary, common spa amenities usually offered are:

  • Aromotherapy
  • Massaging dental chair
  • Headphones with soothing music
  • Paraffin wax hand treatments
  • Hand lotion and massage
  • Heated blanket
  • Heated and scented neck pillow
  • Heated aromatherapy eye pillow
  • Heated face cloth
  • Bottled water, flavored coffee, juice assortments and herbal tea

Some spa dental offices also include a concierge, cascading water fountains, fresh baked cookies, hot stone massages, foot massages, facials and even virtual reality glasses to watch a movie during dental treatment! With the creativity of spa practices, you never know what luxury you might stumble across.

If you’ve always dreaded going to the dentist, spa dentistry might be just what you need. What a great way to get your dental treatment completed while taking some time out for yourself!
