Pampering & Relaxing Spa Services at the Dentist?

April 9, 2012

The association between “dentist” and “relaxation” is entirely possible when you reserve your dental treatment at a Dental Spa such as Aesthetic Dentistry by Design in Colorado Springs.

Some of the spa services that you can enjoy include massage, reflexology, paraffin treatments for your hands and facials.

A jaw massage can help relax the entire area of the face and jaws, and of course do away with the stress and phobia the patient might feel before such a dental procedure.

Cosmetic dentists like Dr. Ken Gasper take it even further, and combine dental cosmetic procedures with other beauty & wellness medical procedures such as veneers applications, followed by Botox injection treatments and then a nice massage.

Some of the extra pampering accessories that you can have access to include headphones with relaxing music, comfortable pillows for your neck, extra soft fleece blankets, DVDs, aromatherapy mitts and heated aromatherapy foot warmers and even Bose noise cancelling headsets.

You will receive everything you need to keep you distracted and entertained while the dentist is doing your smile makeover.

Qualified, licensed professionals provide the spa services.  Meet the aesthetician  at Aesthetic Dentistry by Design.

Sit back and relax — at the dentist’s office? New techniques, technology make trips to the dentist more comfortable

June 20, 2011

We found a great

Aesthetic Dentistry by Design in Colorado Springs has similar services.

“Just the thought of a trip to the dentist’s office can be reason to cringe. The high-pitched whirl of a dentist’s drill is enough to make your cavities perk up.

But these days, dentists are doing all they can to make that trip to the office less painful. And for some, even relaxing.

About one-fourth of adults in the United States avoid going to the dentist because they fear pain or have had a bad experience in the past, according to the American Dental Association.”

To alleviate such anxiety, Aesthetic Dentistry by Design has created a spa-like atmosphere in their office.

Patients are made to feel comfortable with

  • Cozy pillows
  • Down lap throws
  • Otis Spunkmeyer cookies
  • DVD movie library
  • Music videos
  • Bose noise cancelling headsets
  • Complimentary paraffin hand treatments with aromatherapy mitts
  • Heated aromatherapy foot warmers

Additionally, The Spa at Aesthetic Dentistry by Design provides massage therapy services.

Technological Advances

Additionally, Aesthetic Dentistry by Design has invested in equipment that makes certain procedures quicker (fewer injections, less drilling) and more convenient for the patient.

Dr. Gasper provides CEREC technology.

CEREC is a way for Dr. Gasper to create ceramic tooth restorations that are highly durable and closely match a tooth’s current color. The filling, crown or veneer typically can be completed right in the dentist’s office during one appointment.

If you’re self-conscious about your smile due to cracked, broken, decayed or worn teeth, you may be a great candidate for beautiful porcelain, tooth colored CEREC crowns, completed in just One Visit!

Even Tough Guys Get Dental Anxiety

August 4, 2010

Filed under: Dental Phobia — admin @ 9:57 am

Thanks to sedation dentistry, even tough guys can get to the dentist and get the proper dental care they need.

Here are various ways the staff at Aesthetic Dentistry by Design help those who experience dental phobia.

Please call our office at 719.599.0700 for your appointment.

Dr. Haynes
What really makes Aesthetic Dentistry by Design different is our commitment to building relationships with patients so we can understand our patients’ fears and concerns. We listen to you and do our best to create positive experiences. We inform patients every step of the way and welcome questions. The office environment is relaxing so it doesn’t look, feel or smell like a dental office. We have paraffin wax for a nice warm relaxing feeling on your hands while you are visiting us. We have comfortable chairs and pillows. Most patients are relaxed by watching a movie during treatment with Bose noise canceling headphones so that annoying drill isn’t heard! For patients that need extra help relaxing, we offer nitrous oxide (laughing gas) and oral conscious sedation as safe, effective methods for comfortable treatment.

Dr. Gasper
Oral sedation is a way for people with dental phobias to reduce anxiety and fear while having the necessary and elective dentistry that they need or desire. We offer IV sedation to our patients who desire a deeper stage of relaxation.  Nitrous oxide is available as the mildest form of relaxation available for adults and also for children.

Kate
I understand the fear.  We want you comfortable. “Baby steps – a little at a time.”

Yee
Please let one of our staff members know about any dental phobias you have ahead of time. We will make their visit as comfortable and as relaxing as possible. We can provide paraffin hand wax treatments, a movie with Bose headsets, nitrous gas, and if needed (in extreme cases) Dr. Gasper can also prescribe an anti-anxiety med before the appt.

Faith
We understand your fear and we will talk to you and help you relax.

Anna
Encourage them that they are not the only ones who feel that way and tell them we will take it slow. I also give them the options of Halcion, N2O or IV Sedation to help relax them.
