Fear of the dentist isn’t just about the anxiety you might feel before an appointment. For patients with severe dental phobia, the stress can often translate into years between visits, with oral health suffering in turn. Because this fear can be so debilitating, Calgary dentist Dr. Gordon Chee is proud to offer treatment with technology that emphasizes comfort.
We recently added a Mind Alive device to our Calgary office. Unlike many of the more traditional methods for helping patients, Mind Alive doesn’t use any kind of pharmaceuticals to induce relaxation.
Instead, treatment consists of a process called audio-visual entrainment. Specially designed eyesets display flashing light patterns while soothing sound tones pulse through a pair of earphones, altering the frequency of your brainwaves to create a calming effect. Dr. Chee can adjust the audio and visual components as needed to help you better relax during your appointment.
Some of the benefits of Mind Alive include:
- No pills or needles necessary; relaxation is totally natural
- Patient achieves a calm mental state similar to the one induced by meditation
- Reduces physical symptoms of stress, such as elevated heart rate
- Effectively relaxes patients for a wide variety of dental treatments, from root canals to easing symptoms of neuromuscular disorders
Skipping regular dental appointments can lead to tooth decay, gum disease, and a host of other issues. Don’t let fear of the dentist keep you from getting the oral care you need for full body health.
