NuCalm Sedation Dentistry


NuCalm Sedation Dentistry

Anxiety about going to the dentist is all too real and often puts oral health at risk for the people suffering from it. We understand how debilitating fear and anxiety are and can be when it concerns visiting the dentist, and we take this issue very seriously. At Michael Nussbaum, DDS, we work tirelessly to ensure that our patients have a comfortable experience that inspires trust and relaxation. Dr. Nussbaum uses the innovative NuCalm® system to provide a relaxing dental experience that promotes oral health and positive experiences. Call us today to experience drug-free sedation dentistry in Austin!

What is NuCalm®?

NuCalm® is a revolutionary system that features all-natural relaxation techniques. By using a topical cream, the NuCalm Essential Calming Cream, and cranial electrotherapy stimulation, the system interrupts your body’s natural stress response and instead makes your mind think that it is about to fall asleep. In addition to these proprietary techniques, Dr. Nussbaum will give you noise-cancelling headphones that will allow you to drift away from any fear of anxiety you are experiencing.

This drug-free approach works with your body’s natural responses to stress, the release of cortisol and adrenaline, by calming your autonomic nervous system.

Benefits of NuCalm®

NuCalm® offers many benefits over traditional sedation dentistry. The most apparent benefit is that this system doesn’t rely on prescription drugs. Not everyone reacts well or wants to take prescription medication, and at Michael Nussbaum, DDS, we are the only practice in the area offering drug-free sedation dentistry that we know of. Other benefits include:

  • Decreased cortisol and adrenaline production
  • Decreased blood pressure
  • Increased energy
  • You don’t need a ride home
  • Increased immune function
  • Increased circulation

Is NuCalm® safe?

Yes. The NuCalm® system uses natural ingredients and is safe. According to their website, NuCalm® has not received a single report of an adverse response to their product. Because no two people are the same, some people may opt out of certain components of the system, but on a whole, this approach is very safe and appropriate for almost everyone.

Other types of sedation dentistry

Since everyone is different, we don’t rely entirely on the NuCalm® system. If you need more than this system can offer, we do have nitrous oxide and oral conscious sedation.

Fear of the dentist shouldn’t hold you back from living your healthiest life and being in a state of optimal wellness. Our mission is make sure that everyone gets the oral health care that they need, and sedation dentistry is a part of our commitment to you.
