Enjoy Relaxing Dental Procedures At Our Office
Do you ever feel nervous about seeing the dentist? If so, you’re not alone. At The Center For Holistic Dentistry, we work hard to soothe and ease all of your concerns. In fact, relaxation is an important aspect of our treatment plans – not only does it reduce pain, but it also helps your muscles relax for more effective care. Read on to learn more about sedation dentistry and NuCalm in Westchester County, NY.
A Calm, Peaceful Atmosphere
We strive to make you feel at home here. Our team will listen carefully to your needs and create a beautiful, tranquil atmosphere. Once you’re relaxed, dental anesthetics work better and the gag reflex is diminished. This is why we offer a range of sedation and comfort options including:
Local anesthetic medicine used to numb the tooth that’s being treated.
For thousands of years, acupuncture has been used for the relief of pain and anxiety. It works with the body’s own pain control mechanisms, stimulating the release of endorphins which block the pain signals in the brain. It’s so effective that some patients prefer acupuncture over a local anesthetic. Most are more comfortable with a local anesthetic and acupuncture used an adjunct, while others choose acupuncture in combination with nitrous oxide and/or oral sedation.
Oral Sedation Therapy
This type of treatment is an excellent choice for dental anxiety, difficulty getting numb, or a strong gag reflex. We will prescribe a medication for you to take a short time before your appointment. You will take your pill with a glass of water and before you know it, you will be relaxed and ready for your dentistry experience!
For those who don’t want sedation dentistry but need a little help to stay relaxed, nitrous oxide is a good option. It takes effect very quickly but as soon as the gas is turned off, you will begin regaining clarity and function immediately.
Dr. Lerner shares why he screens each patient for chemical sensitivities and how we all have individual needs according to our unique makeup.
The NuCalm System Offers Natural Relaxation
As a holistic dentist, we try to avoid using chemicals and prescription drugs. If there’s a more natural way to achieve the same results, we believe that your body will be better off in the long run with that option. We do offer different types of sedation and stand by their use and effectiveness — however, we are happy to offer a more holistic approach to help patients relax in the chair with NuCalm deep relaxation technology.
NuCalm is a patented, all-natural stress management technology that’s been proven to decrease stress and improve the quality of your sleep – without prescription drugs! NuCalm creates deep relaxation by mimicking the patterns your brain recognizes for relaxation. NuCalm quickly and safely “flips the switch” on stress so your body can relax, heal, and rejuvenate.
How Does NuCalm Work?
NuCalm uses a four-step system to produce amazing effects without sedatives. This method is administered by our team at The Center For Holistic Dentistry at the beginning of your appointment and takes just a few minutes to get started. You will quickly begin to breathe deeper, your body will feel heavier, your mind will quiet, and you will drift into a waking dream-like state of deep relaxation.
NuCalm can help you relax in the chair while balancing your mind and body for a more peaceful state. Without the use of sedatives, NuCalm can allow you to get the dental care you need, comfortably. You’ll even be able to drive yourself home afterward feeling refreshed and rejuvenated, not groggy and confused.
NuCalm’s Four Steps
- Apply NuCalm cream. NuCalm is a proprietary blend of amino acids that work naturally with your body to help you relax. Ingredients are all-natural and hypoallergenic.
- Apply a CES patch behind each ear. Microcurrent stimulation provides undetectable electrical signals to the body to facilitate a relaxation response.
- Put on NuCalm headphones. Soothing music layered with proprietary neuro acoustic software guides you into deep relaxation.
- Put on light-blocking eye mask or glasses to block visual stimulation and help maintain a relaxed state.
