Most people don't think of dental care checkups as a good way to relax, but one dentist in Maryland has an approach to treatment that some patients might come to like.
Dr Sharmin Meraj opened the Meraj Dental Spa during the spring of 2009, according to TheBayNet.com. The facility, which is in Prince Frederick, offers the same services as a normal dentist's office, but attempts to create a relaxing atmosphere in an effort to ease patient anxiety.
"I recognize that most people don't like having dental work done," Meraj told the news source. "Even simple cleanings can be very frightening for some. But I've created a cozy space that doesn't feel like a dental office; it's a place where people can feel comfortable, relaxed and rejuvenated - all while taking care of their oral health."
Meraj's patients can enjoy aroma therapy, heated neck wraps and hot towels when they visit the facility, reports the publication. She also uses special quiet drills and other equipment during her procedures so people don't feel intimidated.
Although some patients might feel nervous before dental checkups, seeing the dentist regularly is important. The Mayo Clinic says gum disease is the primary cause of tooth loss. Periodontitis can be avoided by brushing a flossing every day and by receiving professional teeth cleanings.
