How Sedation Dentistry Can Help You Overcome Your Fear of the Dentist
Boutique Dentistry for Nashville, Tennessee
If you suffer from dental anxiety, there’s a good chance you had some bad experiences at the dentist in the past. Nearly four out of five people report feeling some level of dental anxiety before their appointment. What if we told you that we could help you overcome your dental anxiety for good? You would no longer have to make excuses to skip your appointment and actually get the dental care you need when you need it. At the Center for Advanced Dentistry, Dr. White can help you overcome your dental anxiety with sedation dentistry in Nashville.
Sedation Dentistry Helps You Relax
If you’re ready to defeat sedation dentistry for good, the first step is requested sedation dentistry for your next dental appointment. When you arrive at our dental office, we will set you up with NuCalm, a drug-free sedation dentistry method. NuCalm helps you feel entirely relaxed. During your dental procedure, you won’t hear any dental instrument sounds, or even see the bright lights shining at your face. You will be entirely conscious but unaware of what’s going on since you’re wearing headphones and an eye mask. While you stay relaxed, we will work on your dental work.
Create Positive Dental Experiences
After you experience a few dental appointments using NuCalm, you will soon realize that visiting the dentist isn’t as bad as you once thought. With these new positive dental experiences in your life, you will soon feel less anxious about going to the dentist. Eventually, you might not even feel the need to request NuCalm or any form of sedation dentistry ever again. No matter what types of experiences you had at the dentist in the past, we ensure you won’t have an unpleasant experience at the Center for Advanced Dentistry.

So how does NuCalmwork? NuCalm is the world’s first Systems and Methods for Balancing and Maintaining the Health of the Human Autonomic Nervous System. The autonomic nervous system is the network of nerves that affect and regulate your organ’s functions. This system controls your body’s response to stress by causing you to feel fight or flight response or a freeze and dissociate response. NuCalm helps regulate your body’s response to stress by putting you in a relaxed state.
We start by giving you a skin cream or chewable supplement of sleep hormones (GABA) which the body naturally produces to make you sleep. If you’re not relaxed, your body won’t react to the hormones. To help you relax, we then deliver cranial electrotherapy stimulation to the brain. This gentle treatment is effective for treating insomnia and anxiety.
To top off your experience, we provide you with neuro acoustic music that plays two different beats in each ear. Your brain tries to match its brainwaves to the two different beats which is what happens when you sleep. Lastly, you will wear an eye mask to block out any bright light. The entire process takes about five minutes total and you will feel completely relaxed and ready for your procedure.
