Have you avoided seeing the dentist throughout your adult life? Do those close to you tell you to “just get over it?” We know. Dental anxiety is not something you can just get over. It is very real and can be very strong. We want to help you get the dental care you need, regardless of your fears.
An interesting thing about those who are afraid to see the dentist is that these same people may also be apprehensive to be sedated during dental treatments. In our Shakopee general dentistry practice, patients have a different option altogether. Patients of O’Brien Dental Care can sail through their checkups, cleanings, or other treatments using our drug-free sedation option, NuCalm.
How NuCalm Works
There are a few key elements to the NuCalm relaxation method that combine to achieve outstanding results, which is a calm, stress-free patient. These include:
- Non-pharmacological supplements that temporarily inhibit adrenaline production. This is the first step in the system and lasts for the duration of a visit.
- Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation is conducted through patches placed behind the ears. CES has been used for more than 60 years, aiding individuals with anxiety, insomnia, and other concerns.
- Noise-cancelling headphones deliver soft music to drown out the sounds of dental instruments. The neuroacoustic notes manage brains waves in a pre-sleep state. This means that you will be lulled out of anxiety and into a restful frame of mind.
- A light-blocking eye mask creates a comfortable experience.
You deserve to have no worries about seeing the dentist for routine care, cosmetic treatment, or a restorative procedure. By using the NuCalm system, we significantly improve the experience you have in our office, and the benefits of your newfound sense of confidence can extend throughout your life. People whose dental anxiety is addressed with kindness and a usable system are people who, over time, often lose their fear of seeing the dentist altogether.
