The Bright Future of NuCalm Sedation Dentistry

NuCalm Brightens the Future of Sedation Dentistry

In traditional sedation dentistry, dentists use controlled substances to calm nervous patients. Fortunately, thanks to NuCalm dentists no longer need to use drugs to sedate their most anxious patients. NuCalm is a proven, safe, chemical-free, sedation-dentistry system. The dentist neither injects drugs into patients nor requires them to breath “laughing gas”. NuCalm system components consist of dietary supplements, a cranial electrical stimulation (CES) device, calming music with neuroacoustic sound, and light-blocking glasses that reduce distractions.

How NuCalm Works

At the beginning of a dental appointment, the dentist (or dental practitioner or hygienist) administers the NuCalm system through four steps:

1. The dentist gives the patient NuCalm proprietary chewable dietary supplements that contain only natural ingredients. These supplements are formulated to help the patient relax by counteracting the effects of adrenalin. A nervous person’s body produces adrenalin, which amplifies the nervousness.

2. The dentist places NuCalm microcurrent electrode patches behind the patient’s ears, connects wires from the electrodes to the CES device, and then turns it on. The low current helps the patient feel calm and happy.

3. The patient puts on NuCalm noise-cancelling headphones, and the dentist connects them to an MP3 player to play neuroacoustic software, which is mixture of soothing music and computer-generated sound. This neuroacoustic music and sound has been programmed to set the patient’s Alpha brain waves to a pre-sleep frequency, between 8Hz and 12Hz.

4. The patient puts on NuCalm light-blocking glasses, which can be either opaque or tinted. The light-blocking glasses limit visual distractions so the patient can relax more easily and completely.

The Benefits of NuCalm

The NuCalm system benefits both patients and their dentists. For example:

The near-sleep state induced by the NuCalm system keeps the patient remain calm and unafraid during a dental procedure. Therefore, the dentist can focus on the procedure without worrying about whether the patient is too nervous.

Though a patient who is in a near-sleep state can respond to a dentist’s vocal instructions, the patient otherwise ignores most of the procedure. A patient who ignores a procedure tends to worry less about it.

A fully relaxed patient is less likely to move unexpectedly. Therefore, injuries to the patient and dentist are less likely.

There is no recovery time after a procedure because the NuCalm system is drug free. Therefore the patient can drive immediately.

For many people, fear of dentistry is so intense it prevents their seeking adequate and timely treatment. People who avoid dental treatment for too long not only risk losing some or all teeth, they also risk other serious illnesses, including jaw infections and digestive disorders. Therefore, if you are fearful and reluctant, make an appointment with a dentist who uses the NuCalm sedation-dentistry system. You will find that you can experience pleasant, stress-free dentistry.
