How NuCalm Helps You Relax at the Dentist
At Smile On Dental Studio, we have a few different sedation dentistry options, however, NuCalm is the only system that is patented to allow us to control the autonomic nervous system. This is what is commonly referred to as your “involuntary” nervous system that controls several different aspects of your body that function automatically. Your autonomic nervous system also controls your anxiety response. NuCalm reduces this anxiety response to give you a relaxing feeling throughout your entire appointment.
The 4 Elements NuCalm Utilizes:
- All-natural skin cream or supplements
- Micro-pulse stimulation to facilitate relaxation (CES)
- Noise canceling headphones with proprietary neuro acoustic software
- Light blocking eye mask
First, we give our patients an all-natural skin cream or supplements that give your body sleep hormones it naturally produces. The hormones are all taken from food sources so they are completely safe to take. We then use the micro-pulse simulation to facilitate relaxation. This is a device that has been used to treat insomnia and anxiety for more than 50 years. It’s completely safe and effective to help you relax.
Next, we will give you a pair of noise-canceling headphones to wear. The headphones use neuro acoustic software to feed your brain specific beats embedding into peaceful sounds or music. The brain then naturally follows these beats to achieve a brainwave pattern associated with deep meditation or near sleep. This helps you feel extremely relaxed but it’s unlikely you will actually fall asleep. Lastly, we give you a light-blocking eye mask to keep light and distractions away from your eyes to keep you from feeling anxious.
Benefits for Dentist Appointments
We are excited to introduce NuCalm to our patients at Smile On Dental Studio. Since it’s a completely natural way to combat anxiety, many of our patients are excited to try it. Not only will you feel more relaxed at the dentist, but it also offers many other benefits that other methods of sedation dentistry provide. For example, NuCalm may help you reduce your gag reflex, reduce tension in jaw, neck, arms, and back or even help you have greater ease in getting numb.
Patients who use NuCalm have also reported having increased energy, better sleep, more creativity, and a positive mood following treatment.
Although NuCalm is used widely in dentist offices, it’s also used by cancer patients to improve mood and control discomfort. Sports teams like the Chicago Blackhawks have also used NuCalm to help players recover and rest between games. Motivational speaker Tony Robbins uses NuCalm to help maintain his energy between draining speaking tours.
Whether you want to try NuCalm for your next appointment or use it with another form of sedation dentistry for an ultimately stress-free dental experience, Dr. Chris Hill and the rest of our dental office is happy to do everything in our power to provide you with extra comfort. Try NuCalm at your next dental appointment to experience the benefits yourself.
