Stress is a fact of life. Caused by busy weeks, conflicts with friends or family, worries over finances or health, and challenges at work, it’s nearly impossible to avoid the triggers of stress. Even "good stress", like planning a vacation or preparing for a wedding or new baby can cause a person to feel anxious, affect his or her sleep, mood and appetite. Over time, stress can lead to illness.
Dr. Jeanne Anne Krizman, DMD, MPH, is a respected and trusted dentist serving patients in the Tucson, AZ, area. Understanding that her patients are facing enough stress outside her office, Dr. Krizman and her team work hard to ensure that their patients feel relaxed and calm when they're at Tucson Biological Dentistry. Recently the team introduced NuCalm, an advanced and clinically proven method to guide the patient to deep relaxation without the use of drugs.
Dental visits can be unnerving. Patients are on their back, in a vulnerable position, with the dentist and a hygienist in their personal space placing cold, metal tools in their mouth. Many patients experience gagging, excessive saliva - even sweating. They also notice that their startle reflexes are on high alert. NuCalm can change those feelings and greatly improve the patient experience.
How does it work?
NuCalm is a neuroscience technology that brings the patient to deep states of relaxation, similar to that of nearly falling asleep. It's a quick four-step process that mimics certain patterns recognized by the brain to trigger relaxation. Most patients feel the effects of NuCalm in less than five minutes.
NuCalm topical cream is applied or dietary supplements are administered.
Stimulation patches are placed behind each ear.
Noise-reducing headphones with neurocoustic sounds are placed over the ears.
Light-blocking masks are placed over the eyes to block out the outside world and help the patient remain in a relaxed state.
NuCalm can be used for a single appointment or during many sessions. Many patients will notice greater effects after using NuCalm several times, including greater resistance to stress, improved quality of sleep, and an overall feeling of being relaxed, healthy and energized following a NuCalm session.
