For Our Apprehensive Patients
It is okay to be scared of the dentist. Virtually every dental office can accommodate apprehensive patients. At Smiles By Design, we have done a few things to really help our apprehensive patients.
Our staff is trained to listen. Feel free to vent to any of our staff members, and they will listen to you and offer considerate, empathetic advice. Our offices are also equipped with nitrous oxide (laughing gas), as well as televisions in EVERY treatment room.
We have also incorporated the newest non-medication relaxation therapy, called NUCalm. NuCalm is a system that tricks the brain to mimic the sleep cycle, so when you are "Nucalmed," you are in a very relaxed state, but not drugged. NUCalm involves the patient taking a few amino acids (like vitamins) in the treatment room. The chewable pills consist of melatonin and other amino acids.
After chewing the tablets, you'll wear headphones that play neuro-acoustic music, and we'll place two small electrodes behind your ear. The electrodes emit a slight, painless electrical pulse, and through the combination of headphones, chewable tablets, and electric stimulation, along with a pair of dark glasses, you'll feel very relaxed. Many people fall asleep during treatment. The best part about NUCalm is, after your incredible dental visit, you'll feeling great, with no after effects at all. While this fabulous treatment may sound expensive, it is really affordable for everyone's budget. So why not call us at Smiles by Design and give NuCalm a try and get that beautiful smile you have always wanted?
