NuCalm® in Houston, TX

Dental anxiety is a common issue impacting millions of Americans. In many instances, this anxiety causes people to avoid important dental treatments. Unfortunately, when you don’t visit the dentist for your regularly scheduled checkups, it often results in the development of serious oral health issues that require more involved, and often more painful, procedures to correct.

For years, sedation dentistry has been the gold standard for relieving this dental anxiety. While sedation dentistry is very effective, it’s not for everyone. If you prefer an all-natural way to experience a relaxing dental visit, then you may want to try NuCalm®.

What Are The Benefits Of NuCalm?

Dr. Fleschler is always looking for ways to improve your dental visit. The big advantage she sees with NuCalm is that it is an all-natural stress intervention system. We live in a stressful time, and many of us struggle to effectively manage stress. With NuCalm, your body experiences deep relaxation and recovers from the damage caused by the chemical transactions associated with stress.

NuCalm provides a uniquely positive experience, reduces your stress, and lets you leave feeling refreshed. NuCalm also allows Dr. Fleschler to focus exclusively on doing her best dentistry. Our patients and our team love NuCalm and we are proud to provide this exceptional technology to you.

How Does NuCalm Work?

With NuCalm, deep relaxation is achieved through 4 simple steps:

  • Step 1: Chew dietary supplements containing all-natural ingredients that interrupt stress. The dietary supplements will not counteract or interfere with any medications or dietary restrictions.
  • Step 2: Patches are applied behind each ear for microcurrent stimulation. Research shows this helps to facilitate relaxation.

  • Step 3: Wear headphones and listen to soothing music. Layered in the music is proprietary neuroacoustic software designed to facilitate deep relaxation.
  • Step 4: Wear NuCalm light-blocking eye mask to remove visual stimuli and maintain relaxation.

How Long Does It Take For NuCalm To Work?

NuCalm is administered by our team at the beginning of your appointment and most patients experience deep relaxation within 3 to 5 minutes.

What Does NuCalm Feel Like?

When using the NuCalm system, you may feel a sense of very deep relaxation that is nearly a sleep state. Your arms and legs may feel heavy. Your breathing and heart rate will be slow, similar to when you sleep. However, you may find that your mind wanders through many different thoughts. This is because you are not truly asleep but, rather, are deeply relaxed. At the end of your session, you will feel alert and refreshed, similar to how you may feel after taking a nap.

Am I Going to Fall Asleep on NuCalm?

Most people do not fall asleep when using the NuCalm protocol during their dental visits. That said, it's possible. NuCalm takes you to the brink of sleep, where you hover in a state of deep relaxation that is similar to meditation. If you tend to sleep poorly in general and are sleep deprived, you may fall into a light sleep state during your appointment.

Why the Eyemask?

The eyemask is an integral aspect of NuCalm's physiological effects. While earbuds cancel out the external noise that can cause stress or anxiety during dental visits, the eyemask eliminates the visual stimuli that can interfere with your relaxation. The gentle pressure of the eyemask may also offer a synergistic effect to the neuro acoustic sound waves that are layered into the soft music that plays throughout your treatment. Each tiny detail of the NuCalm protocol is designed to help you reach a deep state of relaxation more quickly.

I have Claustrophobia, What if That Eyemask Doesn't Work for Me?

Not to worry! If you do not find wearing an eyemask relaxing, you may choose to wear a pair of light-blocking sunglasses instead. The purpose of NuCalm is to promote a deep state of relaxation. If needed, we can make minor adjustments to ensure that we achieve this goal.

Can I Resume My Day Immediately After a NuCalm Session?

Yes! NuCalm works without the use of pharmaceuticals that can make you groggy, so you can expect to feel completely alert and well-rested after your session. It is safe to drive, go right back to work or engage in physical activity right away after receiving the NuCalm treatment during your dental appointment.
