Dental anxiety is the fear of visiting the dentist. This anxiety can manifest in many ways and can result in a mild fear when visiting the office to panic attacks related to receiving care. Our goal is to make your visit with us as comfortable and stress free as possible, so that is why we offer NuCalm for dental anxiety as a drug-free alternative to dental sedation. Rather than providing sedation, NuCalm is a system which uses specially designed technology to help you get into a deeply relaxed state for the duration of your procedure.
Why might you benefit from NuCalm?
In many cases, dental anxiety is a lifelong problem that manifests during childhood. Many patients who are afraid of visiting the dentist put off receiving care and often allow smaller dental problems to get worse because of not seeking adequate treatment. If you experience dental anxiety, NuCalm can help put you into a relaxed state, reducing or eliminating the fear associated with your procedure. This technology can help make going to the dentist a stress-free experience, allowing you to get the care you need.
“Dr. Baldwin and his staff are by far the best dental experience I have ever had in my entire life. From the time you step into the office, it feels like you're at a friend’s home and not at the dentist. I've been going to his office faithfully for 3 years and I honestly couldn't be happier.”

Who is a good candidate for treatment using NuCalm?
We offer a comfortable and friendly environment to help calm your anxiety. Despite this, many patients still experience fear and anxiety when they come into the office for any procedure. If you avoid going to the dentist as a result of your anxiety, NuCalm may be a great way to help ease your stress and fear while having dental work done. This technology is a great alternative to dental sedation, and induces relaxation without the needing to take a drug.
What can you expect from treatment using NuCalm?
When you come in to our office for any procedure, we will begin by setting up the NuCalm system before we start any work. We will provide you with headphones and place special stickers on your wrists. Through the headphones, we will play neuroacoustic soundtracks from the NuCalm software, specially designed to interact with the brain and put you into a state of relaxation. We will then complete the procedure while you are left in a deeply calm and relaxed state. Once complete, you can leave the office with your work done, free of stress related to the procedure.
If you have anxiety over visiting the dentist and are interested in learning more about NuCalm, we invite you to call our office and schedule a consultation to meet with our friendly staff members.
