Hospiten Lanzarote reinforces its O.R. dentistry service to improve the patient experience

Posted on 29-07-2019

This new procedure is aimed at people who are afraid, children, with psychomotor problems or with some kind of attention deficit requiring more cooperation


Santa Cruz de Tenerife, July 2019: Hospiten Lanzarote has incorporated a new operating procedure in dentistry aimed at patients who are afraid of interventions and going to the dentist, pediatric patients, or people with psychomotor problems, some type of attention deficit or behavior requiring a greater degree of cooperation.

The aim is to promote a feeling of security and calmness, in addition to lowering the patient’s pain threshold using sedation and analgesic and anti-inflammatory medication during the procedure in the operating room.

According to Hospiten dentist Gloria Irina Eugenio, for most patients visits to the dentist are usually marked with the fear of a lot of appointments and having to go through several painful surgeries. With this new service, the feeling of insecurity is also reduced, given that the patient feels more relaxed and safe in a hospital, with greater cooperation and less physical and mental discomfort, as well as less surgery time in cases of implants. In fact, it is estimated that the duration of the session is shortened by almost 50%.

"This new service is also designed for patients requiring multiple root canals or fillings who prefer this option to be more relaxed, open their mouths for a longer and reduce the number of clinical sessions needed," adds the specialist.

This service at Hospiten Lanzarote will offer first-rate health professionals and the most avant-garde technology to improve integral oral care. The improvements include an easier postoperative period, fewer appointments in consultation, reducing treatment, in the vast majority of cases, to just one day.

On the other hand, a bad experience at the dentist’s also affects patients in making the decision to treat their dental problems, aggravating their situation and making interventions longer and more complicated when they finally make the decision to go to the dentist.

This is an important breakthrough that ultimately translates into shorter, less painful and less distressing experiences for patients.

The group is chaired by Dr. Pedro Luis Cobiella and annually attends more than 1,700,000 patients from all over the world, and employs more than 5,000 people.
