For many people, a visit to the dentist can cause substantial anxiety, even for a simple checkup. In fact, dental anxiety keeps many from going to the dentist at all. That's why Dr. Brown became one of the first to offer NuCalm in Philadelphia. He was one of a handful of clinicians to pioneer this neuroscience based approach to help patients overcome their dental anxiety.
Until recently, people with dental anxiety had few options - avoid the dentist altogether, go to the dentist and suffer with anxiety, or take drugs for sedation dentistry just to get through the visit. Now, though, more and more patients are turning to the groundbreaking NuCalm system as a safe, effective, drug free way to alleviate fear and turn a trip to the dentist into a relaxing experience.
Using Your Body's Natural Mechanisms for Relaxation
Without using any narcotics or controlled substances, NuCalm engages your body's own relaxation mechanisms to help you reach a stress-free state of mind. NuCalm quickly and safely brings you to your most relaxed conscious state, the alpha brain wave state experienced during the initial stage of sleep, when you are perfectly relaxed and hover somewhere on the border of sleep and awareness. During this state, you can still hear the dentist and respond, but your body and mind are completely relaxed and physiologically incapable of feeling anxiety. You lose the sense of time and place and experience a perfectly calm, meditative tranquility, happily relaxing your way through your time in the dentist's chair.
The benefits of using NuCalm include:
NuCalm uses four methods in conjunction to bring your mind and body into this state of absolute relaxation, and the transition process generally takes only a few minutes.
The four approaches of the NuCalm system work together to bring about remarkable relaxation, completely erasing any fear or anxiety.
