Some patients just fear dental sedation. Dental sedation techniques have improved over the years with drug free sedation alternatives. If you have a fear of sedation only, you are not alone; it is not uncommon to fear the sedation process itself.
If the thought of a dental visit that requires sedation creates a bout of dental anxiety, you will be relieved to learn about a new sedation method called Nucalm.
What is Nucalm?
This natural drug free sedation method places your body in a relaxed state, all without using narcotics. This feeling is similar to the first stages of sleep, relaxed but still aware of your surroundings. This method allows you to respond to your dentist because you are not rendered unconscious. This alternate process works well for those who fear the unconscious state of dental sedation.
What are the steps in using this drug free sedation method?
- You will be given a dietary supplement to start the relaxation process. This supplement helps to block adrenaline, which is your body’s response to any stressful situation. By blocking adrenaline, this supplement helps you to relax during your entire visit.
- Next, stimulation patches to aid your relaxation are positioned behind each ear by your dentist or hygienist.
- Headphones playing soothing music are worn to block the sound of drills or suction. In many instances, the sound of a drill or suction tube creates instant anxiety. Blocking these noises assists in preventing the fear associated with the sound of the drill.
- Eyewear designed to block incoming light are worn during the entire dental procedure.
By the time these four preparation steps are completed, you should be feeling as if you are going to fall asleep any minute.
