NuCalm Sedation Technique
"I originally became interested in Dr. Dixon because of his sedation dentistry. I also wanted a dentist who was current with new methods in dental care. I have found that Dr. Dixon is on the leading edge of dental care and is very concerned with the comfort and care he gives each patient."
NuCalm is a revolutionary dental sedation technique that calms dental patients through a system of neuromuscular relaxation. Dr. Brad Dixon is a leading dentist in Gainesville who is trained in the NuCalm process.
NuCalm has four components:
- Non-narcotic chewable tablet that naturally suppresses adrenaline
- Micro current pads placed behind the patient’s ears
- Light-blocking glasses remove visual stimuli
- Headphones block clinical sounds and provide soothing tones
This fourfold treatment induces and maintains a state of calm similar to how you feel just before falling asleep. It is a form of therapy that can relieve anxiety in minutes, releasing tension in the head, neck and back. Some patients experience a rejuvenated feeling for days after the appointment.
NuCalm is perfect for patients that suffer from dental anxiety or prefer a more comfortable experience at the dentist. If NuCalm is not the best method for you, Dr. Dixon may also recommend nitrous oxide (laughing gas) or oral conscious sedation.
