THE BENEFITS OF WEIGHTED BLANKETS
Although many of us may not always enjoy visiting the dentist, for an unfortunate few it goes far beyond that. Some people suffer from dental anxiety, which is an abnormal fear or dread of visiting the dentist for preventive care or dental therapy.
This anxiety can be overwhelming to the patient and can include becoming obsessed with thinking about dental visits. Some people who suffer from dental anxiety can actually postpone trips to the dentist or quit going altogether to avoid what they perceive to be a terrifying, traumatic experience.
Weighted Blankets can help to alleviate some of these fears. Beginning with the night before the dental visit, use our weighted blanket to help get a good night's sleep. The deep pressure touch stimulation encourages your body to produce serotonin--the "happy" hormone, which in turn leads to the production of melatonin--the "sleep" hormone. But getting a good night's sleep the night before is just the beginning.
