NuCalm for Sedation Dentistry

A woman smiling at her dental appointmentIf you’ve felt nervous or anxious before your dental appointment, just know that you are not alone. Millions of people in the United States skip their dental visits regularly out of fear of visiting their dentist. Whether this fear has always been present or occurred due to a poor past experience, the dentists at Katy Family Dental do everything they can to make patients feel comfortable. Of course, sometimes sedation techniques like nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation aren’t always appropriate. In some cases, patients would prefer a drug-free method of getting relaxed in preparation for their treatment. That’s where NuCalm, a sedation alternative for dentistry comes into play.

What is NuCalm?

NuCalm is a neuroscience technology specifically designed to help patients become relaxed and comfortable prior to their dental appointments. One of the biggest differences between NuCalm and other sedation techniques is the method in which it makes patients feel at peace, regardless of the treatment they’re getting completed.

Through the use of biochemistry, physics and neurophysiology, NuCalm puts patients into a deep state of relaxation rapidly and reliably, without the use of medications or gases. This class III medical device interrupts the stress response at the midbrain and guides people to a relaxed state naturally.

How NuCalm Works

NuCalm consists of four steps to get patients deeply relaxed without drugs. This includes natural supplementation, microcurrent stimulation, neuroacoustics, and eye masks.

The NuCalm supplements include either a topical cream or chewable dietary tablets, whichever one you prefer. Both are designed to counteract adrenaline and provide the brain with key nutrients and amino acids to help you relax.

The next step uses sub-sensory microcurrents which work to catalyze the supplements. This current is administered through a small device and two contact pads. By combining these steps, your dentists can interrupt the body’s natural stress response that occurs in the midbrain and balance the brain’s neurochemistry. Don’t worry, you won’t feel any of the current during this step.

The third step utilizes NuCalm’s proprietary software to oscillate brain wave function between deep relaxation and recovery. By guiding brain waves to alpha and theta zones, your relaxation will only become even more enhanced. The phone application also comes with different types of music and nature sounds that have neuroacoustic beats built into them, allowing you to customize your experience further.

Finally, the eye mask works to shut out visual stimuli and help you maintain your deep state of relaxation. This acts as the final touch to your truly immersive experience to erase stress and achieve a deeper and calmer state.
