Benefits of NuCalm
NuCalm relaxation dentistry offers many benefits. It can help:
- Reduce dental anxiety
- Enjoy a relaxing dental experience
- Control strong gag reflex
- Reduce discomfort from dental treatment
- Reduce soreness from tense jaw, neck, and arms
- No drugs
- Achieve a meditation-like state
- Get relaxed in just five minutes
- Stay relaxed for the duration of your visit
It is very effective and about 95% of people achieve relaxation with NuCalm so they can enjoy the benefits.
But it isn’t just about addressing dental anxiety. Many people who use NuCalm find that they enjoy many other benefits. Some of the benefits people report include:
- Increased focus
- Improved energy
- More creativity
- Better sleep
These benefits vary from person to person, but they make NuCalm a valued approach to relaxation for many people. In fact, many people use it exclusively for these benefits. Motivational speaker Tony Robbins uses NuCalm to help keep up his energy while on tour. Pilots use it to help conquer jet lag. Athletes use NuCalm to help them refocus, recover, and regain energy between games.
How NuCalm Works
NuCalm is the only system that’s patented to control your autonomic nervous system. The autonomic nervous system is often called the “involuntary” nervous system because it controls many automatic functions in your body, including your stress response. It is able to essentially shut down your body’s stress response. Instead, you enter a state like being at the edge of sleep or in deep meditation.
Nucalm uses four main components to achieve this effect. First, you get gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA), a natural sleep hormone. This can be delivered either through chewable tablets or with a skin cream (preferred, since you’re getting dental work). This hormone helps encourage your body to relax.
Next, you’ll be given some gentle electric stimulation called cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES). CES has been used for years and is clinically proven to reduce stress and improve sleep. This helps put you in a relaxed state.
Next, you’ll be exposed to a proprietary neuroacoustic software. This neuroacoustic software triggers your brain’s following response. By exposing you to specific beats, the software encourages your brain waves to slow down to a more relaxed frequency.
Finally, eye shades block out the light that can heighten your anxiety. With the combination of these four elements, it only takes a few minutes to achieve a deeply relaxed state, and you’ll stay there, awake but meditative, until we complete your treatment.
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.
