We make every effort to understand your individual needs to ensure your comfort at our office. We’ve helped many patients overcome dental anxiety because we believe that having compassion and mutual trust helps us work together so you can have healthy gums, teeth, and overall health.
While some patients with anxiety have become used to sedation during their dental visits, we don’t want our patients to be impaired to make decisions, feel groggy afterwards, or to disrupt their day. NuCalm provides you with a deep relaxation experience during your appointment, so you’ll leave feeling refreshed and rejuvenated – without drugs or side effects.
At O’Brien Dental Care we are always looking for the best ways to make you as comfortable as possible. NuCalm is one of the newest advancements that can greatly improve your dental experience without sedation!
What is NuCalm?
NuCalm is a patented, all-natural stress intervention technology. NuCalm scientifically sequences four relaxation therapies to mimic your body’s own process for ‘winding down’ and preparing for sleep. You will feel the same way you feel just as you are about to fall asleep.
How Does NuCalm Work?
Deep relaxation is achieved through 4 simple steps. NuCalm is administered by our dental team at the beginning of your appointment and takes just a few minutes to apply. While listening to soothing music, you will relax comfortably in the chair for the entire appointment. The dental assistant will take about 90 seconds to do the following steps prior to your procedure.
Step 1: Apply the NuCalm cream to the front of the neck to help relaxation.
Step 2: Apply patches behind ears for the Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation device to help facilitate the relaxation response.
Step 3: Listen to soothing music through noise-cancelling headphones. Layered in the music is proprietary neuroacoustic software designed to guide you to deep relaxation.
Step 4: Light-blocking eye mask or glasses to block visual stimulation and help maintain relaxation.
What to expect
You will feel completely normal, just as relaxed as you are about to sleep. You’ll be able to think, hear and talk to us as needed without impairment. NuCalm helps to relieve everyday stress and anxiety. That’s why it’s been so beneficial in dentistry. In fact, over 400,000 dental patients across five continents have experienced NuCalm and 97% would recommend NuCalm to family and friends.
