How Does Relaxation Therapy Work?

Many patients find the rewards of NuCalm to be similar to those of sedation dentistry without having to take sedatives. Additionally, a reported 95% of patients find the system successful.

However, here at Dr. Andrea Stevens Dentistry, we value therapy over drugs. That’s why we offer relaxation treatment without popping pills. In order to do this, we use NuCalm, neuroscience technology.  With NuCalm, your body’s relaxation sensors come to the surface while your body’s anxiety sensors essentially shut off.

When you use NuCalm relaxation therapy, your body basically goes into a state of meditation. In fact, our patients love the experience so much that they start to think of the dentist’s office as a relaxing part of their schedules.

The NuCalm System

There are four steps to this system that help your autonomic nervous system slow down. First, we give you GABA tablets or cream, which are natural sleep hormones. These added hormones allow your body to begin its descent into a resting state.

Then, we stimulate your rest receptors with a gentle electric current. We know this may sound scary, but there’s no need to worry! This treatment method has undergone many tests and the results speak for themselves.

After that, your dental team gives you headphones to listen to some music. This isn’t just normal music, though! The patterns and beats give structure to your brainwaves to make you even more relaxed.

Unfortunately, we know just how uncomfortable and unsettling those bright dentist’s lights are. When you’re staring at those lights during your visit, you will never settle down. So, lastly, we give you a light-blocking eye mask. These masks are crucial for your state of relaxation.

So, there you have it! In five easy minutes, Dr. Stevens will have you relaxed and ready for your dentist’s appointment.
