Relaxation Dentistry vs. Sedation Dentistry
You may have heard dentists advertising “sedation dentistry” or “sleep dentistry” as the way to overcome your dental anxiety. While these techniques can work, they rely on medications that give you a drugged out feeling.
Sedation drugs stress your system and may not be helpful in overcoming your dental anxiety. With sedation dentistry, you may feel even more out of control and helpless, which could the cause of your anxiety in the first place. Sedation dentistry can help you get the work done, but it’s not going to make you feel better. And after you leave a sedation appointment, you may be useless for anything else all day.
But with relaxation dentistry, we can eliminate your anxiety using your body’s natural mechanisms. There are no drugs, and you won’t feel drugged out. Instead, what you experience is more like deep meditation. You’re awake, but deeply centered in your consciousness, drifting through thoughts at the edge of sleep.
Benefits of Relaxation Dentistry
With relaxation dentistry, you can overcome many of the things that make you feel uncomfortable at the dentist. You can control:
- Fear of sights, sounds, and smells
- Tension in the jaw, arms, back, and neck

These can also be controlled with sedation dentistry, but with relaxation dentistry, you also enjoy:

Many people who used to dread their dental appointments start looking forward to them once they try NuCalm. Instead of something that stresses them out, it becomes the most relaxing part of their week.
How NuCalm Works
NuCalm is a scientific relaxation technique, based on the neuroscience of your body’s natural relaxation mechanisms. It combines four elements to put your body in a relaxed state by disarming your body’s anxiety mechanisms.
The first element in NuCalm is GABA (gamma aminobutyric acid), a neurotransmitter your body uses to shut down overactive neurons. This is delivered either as a natural supplement or as a cream. It helps your body start engaging its relaxation mechanisms.
Next, we use cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES), a gentle electric current that’s been used for decades to treat insomnia and anxiety. It helps make your brain more receptive to becoming relaxed, even in a stressful environment.
Then we utilize your body’s natural following mechanism to calm your brainwaves. Special neuroacoustic software delivers beats through headphones. When your brain hears these beats, it naturally emulates them, slowing down the brainwaves to a relaxed frequency.
Finally, an eye mask blocks out light that can trigger stress and prevent your brain from relaxing.
With these four techniques, about 95% of people achieve relaxation in an average of five minutes.
