Almost everyone knows that they’re going to be putting on sunglasses at the dentist’s office. The bright lights are simply too much to handle and they can both make people uncomfortable and damage the eyes; however, there is another sense that needs to be protected at the dentist’s office that many people will overlook. The loud whirring of the drill and the grating sound of scraping plaque can make both the dentist and the patient uncomfortable. Therefore, it is important that people invest in some form of hearing protection both for the dentist and the patient. Patients will be rewarded with a more comfortable visit to the dentist’s office that also preserves their hearing.
Everyone knows that dental visits are accompanied by sharp tools that, while scary appearing, are important for making sure that teeth stay clean; however, these tools are also anxiety provoking. When the drill starts spinning the noise creates a stereotypical sound that will make patients uncomfortable. In fact, many patients will grit their teeth as they brace for the impact of the drill near their gum line. This is one of the key benefits that hearing protection will afford. Patients will be unable to hear the drill spinning and therefore are more likely to relax during the visit. This makes patients more comfortable and makes it easier for the dentist to do their job. In addition, drills and other tools make high-pitched noises that can actually damage the hair cells and tympanic membrane of patients and dentists. Therefore, it is just as important that patients have some form of protection for their ears. Ear plugs will both protect the hearing of patients as well as help patients relax during a stressful visit.
When dentists and patients are looking for ear plugs, it is important to consider the quality of the hearing protection that people are investing in. Sound Blocker earplugs not only reduce noise but actually focus on reducing the specific decibel levels and wavelengths that damage hearing. By focusing on the specific type of noise that produces anxiety and leads to hearing loss, the Sound Blocker ear plugs allow people to maintain important communication while still receiving the benefit of blocking out damaging or stress-inducing noise. These noise-reducing ear plugs were developed specifically for the medical field and therefore specialize in creating a better visit for both dentists and patients alike.
