Whether it is because they have sensitive teeth, fear getting shots, or had a bad experience in the past, some people experience dental anxiety and may avoid seeing a dentist altogether. However, we want everyone who visits our office to have great appointments, so we try to relieve their fears. We may do so with nitrous oxide sedation, but we also offer massage therapy to help patients relax and feel calm.
Massage therapy not only relieves anxiety, but it also improves your total health. It helps circulation, strengthens immunity, prevents disease, and accelerates healing. Massage therapy also has benefits specific to your oral health. The jaw is a common tension center, and stress can cause you to strain the joint and muscles there, which can result in discomfort, cracked teeth, and an increased risk for gum disease. When we provide massage therapy, we will ease your anxiety, which can relieve jaw tension and improve your oral health. Call our office today if you want to learn more.
