Dental sedation is often requested for cosmetic dentistry or even general dentistry and necessary for TMJ treatment. Many patients have some dental anxiety, which is normal. NuCalm is the world’s first and only patented neuroscience technology that is proven to lower stress and even improve sleep without drugs!
"Our patients express how much better they feel after NuCalm as well as that their muscles are more relaxed as well. This helps us treat TMJ and complex cases more efficiently. "
Using NuCalm in the dental chair often replaces sedation drugs and “laughing gas”. Patients have expressed great satisfaction with this product. Generally speaking, NuCalm treatments last 20-50 minutes, depending on the level of stress , or can be used for the entire duration of dental care.
A true benefit is patients can wake up and drive and go about their normal activities as opposed to having to take the day off after being sedated with drugs. In high anxiety cases NuCalm can be used in conjunction with sedation medications. When “NuCalming”, patients simply wake up the way the do when napping. Physiologically,the NuCalm experience helps you calm down and slows your breathing and heart rate to relaxation. The nice thing is your mind will not shut down either.
In retrospect, a NuCalm treatment is synonymous with deep relaxation. After NuCalming you may feel:
-physically and mentally more relaxed
-less muscle tension, which is why we use it for TMJ cases
-have better sleep
The only contradictions are pregnancy, pacemakers or claustrophobic patients.
This is truly a revolutionary product and we are proud to be one of the few in Houston to offer this.
