Dentistry Without The Anxiety
NuCalm: The Drug-Free Alternative To Sedation DentistryIn traditional dentistry, there have been three common sedation methods to help keep patients comfortable during dental procedures: oral sedation, nitrous oxide, and IV sedation. NuCalm provides an alternative that uses four techniques to stimulate the body’s natural relaxation pathways. Because it uses no drugs, it can also be used safely alongside traditional sedation, making lower doses possible.
How Does NuCalm Work?The four relaxation techniques of NuCalm are:
- Gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA). GABA is the body’s natural relaxation chemical. Applied as a topical cream or taken as a nutrient supplement, it will help your body relax just like it does when preparing for sleep.
- Cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES). When we are stressed, our bodies resist GABA, but the CES device stimulates the brain to produce serotonin, making it easier to absorb GABA.
- Headphones. A pair of headphones deliver binaural beats to help slow your brainwaves from rapid, anxious speeds to the calmer speeds at the edge of sleep.
- Light-blocking glasses. Blocking out light will further help your mind and body relax.
