We strive to make every dental experience a positive one. However, there are moments when a little extra help is needed. NuCalm® is a tried and true non-narcotic sedation technique that we use for patients every day. This system was developed out of a profound desire to help the anxious dental patient.
NuCalm® is the all-natural way to experience a relaxing dental visit. NuCalm® is a patented all-natural stress intervention technology. NuCalm® scientifically sequences four relaxation therapies to mimic your body’s own process for ‘winding down’ and preparing for sleep. You will feel the same way you feel just as you are about to fall asleep. Read our new patient introduction to NuCalm® here.
How does NuCalm® work?
Step 1: Application of calming cream containing all‐natural ingredients that interrupt stress. The cream will not counteract or interfere with any medications or dietary restrictions.
Step 2: Patches are applied behind each ear for microcurrent stimulation. Research shows this helps to facilitate relaxation.
Step 3: Wear headphones and listen to soothing music. Layered in the music is proprietary neuroacoustic software designed to facilitate deep relaxation.
Step 4: Wear NuCalm® light-blocking eye mask or dark glasses to remove visual stimuli and maintain relaxation.
Most patients report a significant reduction in anxiety and feel well-rested rather than exhausted after the procedure. In fact, they are perfectly capable of driving immediately after their dental procedure, unless NuCalm® is combined with other sedation methods that restrict patient driving.
The level of safety associated with this system is far greater than intravenous or non-intravenous conscious sedation and can be used with most patients. As always, it is important for patients to provide information regarding current medical conditions and medications being taken so that our doctors may evaluate and qualify you for use of NuCalm®.
