Improving Comfort and Care with a Memory Foam Headrest
When it comes to dental care, nothing is more important than patient comfort. Dental anxiety is a very real concern for both dentists and patients, and dentists face the constant challenge of comforting their patients in order to keep them happy and earn their renewed business.
The key to keeping patients comfortable and reducing their stress is proper positioning, which can be achieved with the right memory foam headrest.
Optimum Comfort and Support
With a memory foam headrest, patients can feel comfortable whether they are seated or lying in a dental chair. The supportive, yet soft material of a memory foam headrest keep a patient’s head and neck in a comfortable position, allowing him or her to relax without having to constantly adjust. Whether patients are in for a routine cleaning or a longer, more invasive procedure, they will be able to relax for the entire duration of their visit.
Additional Benefits for Dental Workers
While patient comfort and care are important, dentists and hygienists also have to keep their health and well-being in mind. A large majority of dentists and hygienists face musculoskeletal issues throughout their career. In the worst case scenarios, these issues force dental providers into early retirement.
But, proper patient positioning with a memory foam headrest helps dental operators, too. When a patient is positioned correctly, dentists and hygienists are able to maintain a more healthy and stable ergonomic positioning: headrests reduce stress on the lower, mid and upper back as well as the joints in the wrists, elbows, and shoulders. They even relieve tension and stress on the spinal segments of the neck.
By simply placing their patients in a more comfortable position, dental providers don’t have to place themselves in awkward positions. This relieves the strain on their muscles and joints, reducing pain, joint misalignment and other career-impeding issues.
A Memory Foam Headrest for Any Occasion
When it comes to patient comfort and positioning, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Patients come in all shapes and sizes: from small children to fully grown adults and everyone in between.
