Essential oils change how Tucson, AZ patients feel about dentistry
have gained popularity in mainstream American society, but their calming history dates back to ancient ayurvedic medicine. Today, Dr. Jeanne Anne Krizman DMD MPH offers this relaxing solution to patients in the Tucson, AZ
area who suffer from dental anxiety.
Dental anxiety stress essentials herbal relaxation
The limbic system is part of the brain that controls primitive functions such as mood, emotion, and long-term memory. Thus, the brain uses positive memories to aid in anxiety control, pain management, and healing. Aromatherapy involves scientific use of pure essential oils
to produce this effect for anxiety-free dentistry.
Dr. Krizman offers an anti-dental anxiety essential oil blend that calms nervous patients, reducing jaw and neck strain and stimulating natural healing. This anti stress essential oil blend is from dōTerra, known to produce the best calming essential oils. It contains organic plant compounds that stimulate a uniquely tranquil experience.
Understanding dental anxiety
Adults experience four basic kinds of anxiety:
- Apprehension - Feelings of unease, worry, or paranoia.
- Repression - This sensation of being on edge and irritable leads to difficulty concentrating, insomnia, and an overall feeling of exhaustion.
- Tension - This anxiety is felt as tenseness throughout the body, resulting in muscle aches and pains.
- Restlessness - When the autonomic nervous system triggers dizziness, perspiration, or a “lump in the throat.”
Dental anxiety & stress essentials help to alleviate all four types, without use of sedative drugs. The dental anxiety release essential oil blend that Dr. Krizman uses can be diffused into the air of the treatment room with a quiet, electric cool mist humidifier, or dabbed onto the patient’s bib. If you are very anxious about treatment, she may give you a sterile gauze square treated with essential oils, to sniff when you feel nervous. Both the scent and the ritual can be relaxing.
Essential oils are fun and pleasant. In the hands of a trained dental professional, they are also strong medicine to combat stress. This is just one of the ways Dr. Krizman strives to make safe, effective dental care available to all patients in the Tucson, AZ area. Call to schedule an appointment.
