Sedation dentistry is an effective way for patients who are anxious or struggle with discomfort during dental treatments to get the comprehensive oral health and beauty services they deserve. Traditionally, optimal comfort has been achieved through sedation dentistry options such as nitrous oxide and oral medications. But these options are not right for everyone. To help ensure all of our patients are provided the safe and effective sedation dentistry solutions they deserve, Fairfax dentist Dr. Marzban is pleased to offer NuCalm®, a non-medicated and natural way to achieve complete relaxation before and during your entire procedure.
What is NuCalm?
NuCalm is a neuroscience technology that combines four components to help patients achieve optimal relaxation and calm without medications. Your NuCalm service will consist of:
- A naturally derived topical cream or dietary supplement designed to block adrenaline and create a natural relaxation response
- Microcurrent stimulation patches behind each ear to support the relaxation response achieved through adrenaline blockage
- Noise-dampening headphones to deliver proprietary neuroacoustic software that brings the brainwave pace to pre-sleep stages
- Light-blocking eye masks to eliminate visual stimuli and allow for complete and total relaxation
These components work together to disarm your body’s natural anxiety response. NuCalm helps you achieve a restful state like deep meditation. It doesn’t just work on the anxiety you’re aware of, it can tone down unconscious responses to anxiety. Nervous sweating, flushing, and other signs of anxiety reinforce negative feelings. By helping to stop these other symptoms, it keeps anxiety from feeding on itself.
Does NuCalm Work?
Although NuCalm is a new combination of technology, the individual components have been thoroughly tested and used for decades. For example, the microcurrent stimulation has long been used to treat both anxiety and insomnia. When the US patent office reviewed the system, they granted the first ever patent “for systems and methods for balancing and maintaining the health of the human autonomic nervous system.” The autonomic nervous system regulates, among other things, your anxiety response.
The system has been used by many people to induce calm, improve energy, and unlock creativity, including Tony Robbins and the Chicago Blackhawks. But most telling is the response of people who have used NuCalm: 95% say they would use it again, and 98% said they would recommend it to friends and family. Would people keep using or recommend a technology that didn’t work for them?
Don’t Just Get Through Dental Appointments–Enjoy Them
NuCalm is a welcome addition to the sedation dentistry services already in place at our Burke, Virginia office. Because NuCalm is drug free and without serious side effects, we can recommend it for every patient in our office–not just those with high levels of anxiety. It has the potential to turn your regular dental visits into restful and rejuvenating experiences.
Many people report feeling energized after a NuCalm session. They often feel a burst of creativity. And many people find they sleep better at night after using NuCalm. That’s because NuCalm is about more than just treating anxiety–it’s about finding calm.
During your initial consultation with Dr. Marzban we can help you determine if NuCalm or another form of gentle sedation will best meet your particular needs.
