¿Panic or fear of going to the dentist?
Guided Relaxation Session
The session is led by our therapist. The goal is for the patient to come to the appointment in a calm and relaxed state, with their anxiety and fear set aside. This is achieved through a guided relaxation session.
During the session, music, breathing and words allow the patient to enter into a state of physical and mental relaxation and to leave tension and nerves at a secondary, unconscious level. When the session is over attention is shifted to the newly generated state, allowing the situation to be dealt with in a calm and composed manner.
Twilight sleep is a pioneering service we offer at Dental Corbella. In the event of anxiety or fear – or for complex procedures – it allows the patient to remain minimally conscious and relaxed enough to not be aware of anything during the procedure. It can be applied to both surgery as well as what is referred to as intensive dentistry.
This technique is used in various cases: for special patients or those with a fear of needles. In the latter case, because an IV can’t be inserted into the patient’s arm, a mask is placed on the patient so that they become drowsy. This way, the patient is prepared for the IV. From then on, it becomes twilight sleep.
Besides the anesthesiologist, there is a nurse in attendance to assist throughout the entire procedure.
