Does the thought of going to the dentist make you feel nervous or anxious? Do you feel uncomfortable with the unfamiliar sights and sounds you experience in a dental office? If so, we have just what you need. At our practice, we are pleased to offer NuCalm®, a unique relaxation system to help you feel more comfortable during your dental appointment.

NuCalm is a patented system that focuses on relaxing not only your body but also your mind in just a few short minutes. To do this, NuCalm combines physics, biochemistry, and neurophysiology to bring your mind into a natural state called parasympathetic nervous system dominance. This state of mind is one where your body can rebuild, heal, and recover naturally. To achieve this state of being, NuCalm uses four components:

  • Topical cream: this works to counteract adrenaline by calming your sense of fight or flight and helps you enter a relaxed state more quickly by including a nutrient-sourced building block.
  • Microcurrent stimulation patches: these small patches are placed behind both ears, passing a small current into your body to help facilitate the relaxation state.
  • Noise-dampening headphones: by using neuroacoustic software, these headphones can block out sound and bring your brainwaves to the natural pre-sleep stage.
  • Light-blocking eye mask: this helps eliminate all visual stimulation to keep you relaxed during your treatment.

When you are treated with NuCalm, you will remain awake during your treatment, but you will be in a naturally relaxed state that may cause you to not even care that you are sitting in a dental chair. In many cases, patients can allow their minds to wander and focus on things other than their treatment, which ultimately helps reduce any nervousness or anxiety. In fact, once your treatment is complete, you will most likely feel refreshed and rejuvenated, just as you would after a good night’s rest.

Our team at Gunnerson Dental wants you and your family to feel as relaxed as possible when you visit our practice. We understand that going to the dentist can be an uncomfortable experience for many people, which is why we are proud to offer NuCalm® in Payson, Utah! NuCalm’s unique relaxation system helps you cancel out the sights and sounds of a dental office, so you can feel more like you are relaxing at home than sitting in a dental chair. Now, there is no need for medication or sedation to give you a more comfortable experience. If you are interested in using NuCalm at your next appointment with Dr. K. Cheyn Gunnerson, we invite you to contact our office at 801-658-0102 and speak with our team.
