Does the thought of going to the dentist make you nervous? Is the thought of taking drugs to go to the dentist just as bad–or worse? We have good news: with NuCalm, you can be relaxed at the dentist without drugs. NuCalm is a neuroscience technology that uses your body’s own relaxation mechanisms to essentially “shut off” your anxiety response. You enter a meditative state that can be so refreshing, even previously anxious patients can find that their dental visit is the most relaxing thing on their calendar.

Benefits of NuCalm Relaxation Dentistry
NuCalm is a revolutionary new technology for achieving a relaxed state. It can be similar to meditation, but it doesn’t take years of practice to master. With NuCalm, you can:
- Control dental anxiety
- Desensitize your gag reflex
- Avoid muscle tension and soreness
- Get relaxed in just five minutes
- Stay relaxed throughout your visit
- Get relaxed without drugs
NuCalm can do many of the same things as sedation dentistry, and about 95% of people find it works for them.
Of course, NuCalm is a technology whose impact goes beyond simply countering dental anxiety. Many people use NuCalm for a variety of purposes, and if you use NuCalm during your dental visit, you might experience these benefits as well, including:
- Improved focus
- Increased energy
- More creativity
- Better sleep
Not everyone experiences these benefits, and using NuCalm periodically for dental relaxation isn’t the best way to achieve them, but we have had people who report these benefits just from this type of use.
How NuCalm Works
NuCalm works by controlling your autonomic nervous system. It’s the only technology patented to accomplish that control. People often call the autonomic nervous system the “involuntary” nervous system because it regulates many things in your body such as whether your body should be focused on “fight or flight” or “rest and digest.” NuCalm is a neuroscience technology that flips the switch to shut down your anxiety response so you enter a deeply restful state. It’s like being at the edge of sleep or deep in meditation–the kind of meditative state that it takes years to be able to achieve.
How does NuCalm do this? It uses four simple components:
- GABA tablets or cream
- Neuro acoustic software
- Light-blocking mask
GABA (gamma-aminobutyric acid) is a natural sleep hormone. It helps your body prepare for rest. CES (cranial electrotherapy stimulation) is a gentle electric current that has been used for decades to reduce stress and help sleep. It is well-supported by clinical data.
The neuro acoustic software is an elaborate form of asynchronous beats. This provides your brain with two different patterns of beats, and as the brain tries to reconcile them, its brainwaves match the frequency differential. Brainwaves at this frequency put your brain in a relaxed state.
Finally, the light-blocking mask helps you keep out the bright light from the dental operatory. The light amplifies your stress and makes it hard to rest, but blocking it out helps you relax.
It takes only five minutes to go through the sequence to initiate NuCalm and enter the NuCalm state. You’ll stay in that state as long as you keep the headphones on. This lets you stay relaxed through your dental procedure.
When we take off the system, you’ll recover just as quickly, so you can head right back to work or play–you can safely drive.
