Many dental practices offer sleep dentistry, which often requires the use of medications or gases. However, now patients can relax in the dental chair without the use of medications. Instead, Dr. Michael Westman of the Racine, WI area is pleased to offer a solution known as NuCalm for an amazing experience at the dental office.
NuCalm is a revolutionary way for patients to relax without the need for pharmaceuticals, IV injections, or gases to feel at ease. With NuCalm, patients are calmed with a variety of techniques in one for optimum calm. This all-natural solution to calming a patient utilizes four sensory applications to get optimum results:
- Chewable tablets – patients are administered a chewable tablet that includes natural anxiolytic neurotransmitters. These interrupt the body’s natural fight-or-flight response that often comes with dental anxieties.
- CES – cranial electrotherapy stimulation is a device cleared by the FDA for the treatment of insomnia, anxiety, and depression, which utilizes a mild electrical current.
- Music – NuCalm utilizes proprietary neuroacoustic music that provides a low-frequency beat that can relax the brain into the first stages of sleep.
- Glasses – special black-out glasses are used in maintaining relaxation and eliminating any visual stimulation that can cause anxiety.
While patients are relaxing with their NuCalm device, our dental professionals are able to complete dental work. This all-natural method of calming patients has been shown to be extremely effective in patients with mild to moderate dental anxieties. It has been a complete game-changer for patients who are not only anxious about visiting the dentist, but those who also have a fear of needles or want to avoid taking unnecessary pharmaceuticals to get through their appointments. We encourage patients to ask us about NuCalm for their next visit.
