How It Works: NuCalm is a drug-free approach to relaxation dentistry. Instead, NuCalm uses neuroscience to induce a deeply meditative state, like just being at the edge of sleep. Time passes quickly and your mind wanders. You have little awareness of the world around you. It’s very effective at controlling mild to moderate anxiety for most people. However, it provides no pain relief, other than distraction. When necessary, we use local anesthetic. When we stop NuCalm, you can come to full alertness within a few minutes. There are few negative side effects, but people sometimes experience positive side effects like feeling calm, recharged, and inspired.
