If going to the dentist gives you anxiety, you’re not alone. Visiting the dentist tends to stress out many people. Luckily, we’re here to help!
Here at Cosmetic & Esthetic Dentistry, we understand that going to the dentist brings a lot of stress. Still, we encourage you to get your regular cleanings.
In order to make it to your appointments, we want you to be comfortable. We offer the best care combined with the newest technology in the Boston area. This includes NuCalm®, a system that offers stress and anxiety-free treatment.
What is NuCalm®?
Whether you’re getting a simple cleaning or going to the dentist for an involved procedure, NuCalm® helps you relax. By using calming practices, it helps your body slow down. Then, your body will feel as though you’re ready to fall asleep.
NuCalm® includes four therapies to help you unwind. When you visit the Cosmetic & Esthetic Smile team, we’ll help you achieve ultimate relaxation. Once your dentist implements these therapies, we will use numbing agents and other tools to make your visit as pleasant as possible.
Dietary Supplements to Ease Your Mind
First, your dentist will give you an all-natural dietary supplement to take. This will increase the number of amino acids in your body, which, in turn, soothes anxiety. Though it helps you relax, it won’t interfere with any of the other medications you take.
Increase Healing with Small Currents
We use a microcurrent stimulation to send extremely small and weak currents throughout your body. Even though it might sound scary, the tiny currents have the ability to relieve pain and increase healing. Additionally, the electrical currents lead you into a state of comfort and calmness. Our patients generally love this step of the process because it’s easy and simple!
Music Helps You Relax
You may or may not have heard of the benefits of music therapy. This therapy benefits patients by managing stress and promoting wellness. Sometimes dentists don’t use this technique because they don’t know how efficient it is when helping their patients.
At our office, we have done a lot of research on the topic. When you see Dr. Clancy, he performs your entire procedure while you listen to calming tunes. The music, specifically designed using proprietary neuro-acoustic software, helps the mind slow down.
Wearing an Eye Mask Gives Extra Comfort
Finally, you will wear a mask or light-canceling glasses to block out visual stimuli. Here at Cosmetic & Esthetic Dentistry, we know that big dental equipment is scary. Our goal is to remove any nerve-provoking sights while introducing a calm state-of-mind.
