The dental anesthesia alternative


When you lay down to go to sleep, sometimes your mind wanders to to-do lists, the day’s events, or other thoughts. Gradually, without even being aware, your mind relaxes to the alpha state of sleep, a stage characterized by deep breathing, day dreaming, and involuntary twitching. The alpha stage is not a deep sleep, but instead a relaxed, almost “zen like” state.

The alpha stage is very similar to the state you reach during Nucalm, an all natural alternative to dental sedation. Your mind is able to rest, your body feels rejuvenated, and any anxieties you may have about your appointment–or otherwise–are laid to rest as you relax in the dental chair. Over 140,000 patients and counting have used the Nucalm system, and 98% of them would recommend Nucalm to their friends and family.

The benefits of Nucalm vs. traditional dental sedation are simple:

  • Nucalm is all natural. It consists of a dietary supplement designed to provide natural relaxation, combined with noise canceling headphones, light blocking glasses, soothing music, and microcurrent stimulation patches behind the ears.
  • Nucalm does not require any “recovery” time after the appointment. You do not feel woozy, “out of it” or require a driver to and from your visit. In fact, you may feel more awake and relaxed than you did before you came in!
  • Nucalm does not cause any side effects.
  • Nucalm is cheaper than other sedation options.

For most people, the Nucalm system can provide the relaxation and relief from dental anxiety without the need for traditional sedation. Check out the video testimonial on how Nucalm worked for Lisa.
