If you are anxious about going to the dentist, it can make it hard to get even basic dental care, let alone the cosmetic dentistry treatments you want to get the smile of your dreams. You may have heard of sedation dentistry, but don’t like the thought of being drugged for a dental visit, don’t like the side effects, or the inconvenience of needing someone to drive you to and from the dentist. NuCalm is an alternative to sedation dentistry that uses completely natural mechanisms to help you feel relaxed at the dentist.

What NuCalm Feels Like
NuCalm won’t make you delirious or dizzy or make you black out suddenly like sedation dentistry can. Instead, the experience of NuCalm is like meditating deeply or experiencing that moment just before you fall asleep.
Think of what’s that like, getting slowly heavier, but at the same time feeling like you’re floating. You float away from the world and all of its cares, and your mind drifts through its own ideas. You’ll be aware of your dental care, but you won’t be able to care, you’re too deep in sleep or meditation. You won’t be aware of time, either, and while you’re in NuCalm time will pass by like the night during sleep: hours can seem just an instant.
The Secret of NuCalm
NuCalm starts with the recognition that there’s nothing wrong with people who experience dental anxiety. Instead, their brain is just following its natural response to the stimuli at the dental office. Strange smells, sounds, and sights, and a relative stranger is sticking objects in one’s mouth. The inventors then asked if there was a way we could replace that natural response with another natural response, one of calm relaxation, and they developed a method to do it.
The first step in NuCalm is when you take the all-natural supplements. These supplements are derived from food and contain amino acids that your body uses to regulate stress hormones like adrenaline and cortisol. This can predispose you to becoming relaxed.
But when you’re stressed, your body normally ignores these relaxation compounds, but cranial electric stimulation (CES) to make your brain receptive to becoming relaxed.
Then you are given headphones playing calming music. It’s not just the music that’s calming—inside the music is embedded special frequencies that regulate the processing speed of your brain at a relaxing level.
Finally, light-blocking glasses or a mask are used to keep out the light that stimulates an alert response. This creates a perfect environment for dozing off, and your brain responds by doing just that.
Is NuCalm Safe?
It’s important to be aware of the risks related to any kind of treatment. However, NuCalm is very safe, and has fewer safety risks than sedation dentistry. With more than half a million patients taking advantage of NuCalm–not to mention pilots, athletes, and others–there hasn’t been a single serious adverse event reported.
