Lake Forest, Lake Bluff IL
A growing body of evidence ties oral health with overall health and well-being, with scientists linking tooth decay and gum disease to chronic medical issues. But many people feel anxious – even fearful – about the sights and sounds of a dentist’s office, causing them to ignore their oral health and risk serious consequences down the road.
Fear need not be a dental deterrent anymore. Thanks to NuCalm, more than 160,000 patients across the United States – even those who are fearful of the dentist – have now walked out of a dentist’s office feeling more relaxed and rejuvenated than they felt walking in.
What is NuCalm?
NuCalm is a revolutionary, all-natural sedation technology that we are excited to offer in our Lake Forest dental office. This drug-free, holistic stress intervention makes the dental experience relaxing even for anxious patients, with 98 percent of those who have experienced it saying they would recommend it to family and friends. Many people have reported that NuCalm makes them feel the same way they feel just as they’re about to fall asleep.
How does it work?
NuCalm, administered by our dental team at the beginning of appointments, scientifically sequences relaxation therapies to mimic your body’s own process for winding down and preparing for sleep. While listening to soothing music, most patients experience deep relaxation within 3-5 minutes and will remain comfortable in the dental chair for the entire appointment.
Steps to relaxation
Deep relaxation is achieved in three simple steps:
- Step 1: FDA-approved microcurrent stimulation calms your brainwaves, rapidly facilitating the relaxation response.
- Step 2: Noise-canceling headphones play soothing music layered with proprietary neuro-acoustic software designed to facilitate relaxation.
- Step 3: We apply light-blocking glasses or an eye mask to block visual stimuli and help maintain relaxation.
That’s it! When the appointment is over, patients enjoy no side effects, no impairments and no recovery time. In fact, most report feeling more refreshed and less tired after their NuCalm experience.
