Benefits of Essential Oils Thursday, 10 November 2016

Fear of the dentist is one of the top 3 reasons for dental neglect

No need to worry anymore! Experiencing the therapeutic effectiveness of essential oils will turn your dental visit into a relaxation session that will keep you coming back. Scientific research validates the value of essential oils in decreasing anxiety and stress. A small application to the temples, back of the neck, wrists and even inhalation in the waiting area provides relaxation before and during the dental visit and is known to provide a calming effect during injections too! Adults and children can both benefit.

Essential oils benefit the psychological and physical well-being

Aromatherapy has antimicrobial and antiviral properties and increases the oxygen level in the air, clean air and no “dental office smell” here!

Enhancing the experience is what dental care is all about. The addition of these holistic modalities truly create piece of mind. If taking care of your teeth is a challenge our integrative practice can help you through with the use of aromatherapy and essential oils.
