Every patient is probably stressed to a certain degree on visiting the dentist. This makes it all the more important not to make the tension worse by sitting uncomfortably. Everyone benefits if the patient is sitting or lying comfortably and if the dentist and his assistant can proceed with treatment efficiently with back-friendly posture.
There is no doubt that unfavourable working positions and workflows cause back problems – something that is also possible in dental practices. 64% of dentists suffer from back problems and 42% from posture-related headache.
What's needed is therefore a dentist's chair that is not just comfortable for the patient but also permits ergonomic working procedures for the practice team. This means the dentist's chair must put the dentist close to the patient in a position that permits a back-friendly posture, whether standing or sitting.
Generous horizontal adjustment is also possible so that both extremely small and very large patients can be treated in a position that is pleasant for both sides. The possibility of motor adjustments to the actual seat is also a patient-friendly option, allowing comfortable changes in position for the patient particularly during longer treatments.
Heeding all these points means that there are no longer any hindrances to a stress-visit to the dentist.
