We know that many people are uncomfortable at the dentist, but not everyone wants to take sedation drugs to make their visit more comfortable. For the past three years we’ve offered NuCalm as an alternative to relax at your next dental visit.
NuCalm is an exciting new technology that uses advances in neuroscience to disarm your body’s anxiety response. Instead of being tense and worried, you’ll descend into a deeply relaxed state, similar to deep meditation or being at the edge of sleep.
What Is NuCalm?
NuCalm is a simple combination of four basic components that work together to modulate your body’s involuntary nervous system. Instead of being ruled by the sympathetic nervous system, which puts your body on alert and prepares it for a fight-or-flight response, your parasympathetic nervous system will take over. This is the part of the nervous system that sets your body up for relaxation, healing, and rejuvenation.
The four components of NuCalm are:
- Gamma aminobutyric acid (GABA)
- Cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES)
- Neuroacoustic software
- An eye mask
GABA is a natural sleep hormone, which helps get your body started relaxing. The CES is a microcurrent stimulation that’s been used for more than 50 years in the treatment of anxiety and insomnia. The neuroacoustic software is a specifically engineered set of sounds. You’ll listen to music or nature sounds, or another track of your choosing, and embedded in the sounds is special beats. Your brain picks up on these beats and harmonizes your brainwave frequencies to them, causing you to enter a relaxed state.
The eye mask keeps bright light from disrupting your relaxation.
