A significant number of Americans do not visit the dentist for regular checkups because they are too fearful or suffer from dental anxiety. Sedation dentistry offers an excellent way to provide a safe, anxiety-free, dental experience to those who are afraid of the dentist.
How NuCalm Works
NuCalm uses four components that work together to bring the body to a deep state of calm. It is administered as soon as you sit in the chair and takes about 3 minutes. You will feel the relaxation effects in 3-5 minutes.
Microcurrent stimulation patches are placed behind each ear. Research shows this helps facilitate the relaxation response
Noise-dampening headphones are used to deliver proprietary neuroacoustic software, layered with soothing music, to bring your brain wave pace to the pre-sleep stage (8Hz -12Hz per second).
Light-blocking eye masks are used to negate visual stimuli and help maintain the NuCalm relaxation state.
The combination of these four components provides you with a powerful and effective relaxation experience, especially during dental procedures. The more stressed or anxious you are, the more profound the NuCalm effect will be.
NuCalm will relax your mind and your body throughout the entire dental procedure. You will be conscious and able to respond to voice commands, but you will physically be unable to have an anxious response and will be unaware of time and space...you will feel like you are in deep meditation or about to go to sleep.
Your NuCalm appointment will provide a sense of balance and wellness for hours, and even days, after your appointment. The neuromuscular release will resolve any tension in your head, neck, and upper back which may also last for a couple of days. With NuCalm, you can be diligent about your oral health care and have the benefit of full body rejuvenation. It's going to seem strange wanting to go to the dentist, but you will get used to it
