The truth is that many people have an innate dental fear, primarily because they are afraid of painful dental treatment. It is a common anxiety issue with practically all dental patients to some extent, and dentists have dealt professionally with this problem for many years.

NuCalm brings an advancement in relaxation therapy to provide an dental sedation option that works without drugs. Here’s how:

Step 1: Dietary supplements

The first component of Nucalm anxiety relief therapy is providing dietary supplements for the patient to chew for helping reduce the adrenaline associated with anxiety and fear. This takes about 3-5 minutes to take effect. There is no narcotic substance included in the supplements, but there is a Nucalm company proprietary chemical included that is not classified as a controlled substance.

Step 2: Ear patches and headphones

Stimulation patches are next applied behind the ears allowing the relaxation sensation to be more effective. Headphones are then put over the ears, and relaxing music is programmed through the headset to further enhance the relaxation therapy before actually beginning the dental treatment. This combination is used for a few more minutes.

Step 3: Sunglasses

The dentist will then provide a pair of sunglasses to block distracting lighting that the patient will obviously notice while inclined in the dentist chair. This allows the patient to further relax while the dentist is preparing to work on the patient’s teeth.

Positive results of all ages

The results of the Nucalm combination have been very positive for all dentists who have taken the step to offer relaxation and anxiety reduction therapy to their patients. It has been particularly effective for all age groups and can help reduce fear that children experience anytime they go to the dentist. Anxiety and fear often begin well in advance of the actual appointment day, especially for children.

It is important to remember this process is not intended to replace local numbing agents or applied anesthesia in serious dental treatment processes. But, it can help relieve the anxiety before the actual anesthesia is administered. One thing is clear about the success of this new approach. It means that anxiety levels can be reduced in the patient, and it also means that the dentist will not need to deal with patients that are overly anxious by nature, allowing the dentist to also relax while working.

Dental Anxiety Is In The Past

shapira-dental-sedationThere are quite a few options these days when it comes to dental sedation methods. Triazolam is one of these options, which includes many benefits for those who are looking for needle-free sedation options.

Because many people are looking for needle-free dental sedation options in order to avoid any pain they might experience when needing dental work, it’s worth the time to find out more about how Oral Triazolam works.

Essentially, oral Triazolam is specifically used to treat dental patients who tend to experience a lot of anxiety or fear, even when simply thinking about making a dentist appointment.

There are many people who are afraid to go to the dentist because they want to avoid anything that can cause them pain. And because needles are often used when treating dental patients, it’s important that those who experience fear and/or anxiety when thinking about these needles know that there are needle-free options.

Although dentists have been using traditional methods of sedation for many years now, there are more and better choices available for you these days, including oral sedation options.  

Relief That Fits In The Palm Of Your Hand

Oral Triazolam is being used as a method of oral sedation because it’s highly efficient for treating patients who have a great deal of dental fear and anxiety. It contains elements that are going to act as a depressant on your central nervous system, which allows you to enter a deep state of relaxation. Once you’re totally relaxed, all of your fears and anxieties will slowly drift away. Triazolam is safe to use and highly effective as a  stress reliever. 

How Does Oral Triazolam Work?

Triazolam is taken orally in pill form, begins working as a stress and anxiety reliever within about an hour, and lasts about 3 to 4 hours in total. Once the medication starts to work you’re going to start experiencing a very warm and relaxing feeling throughout your entire body. You may even begin to feel so relaxed and comfortable that all of your worries begin to slip away, making you feel happy and carefree.

The advantages to using Triazolam are many, with the most significant advantage being that you’re no longer feeling that anxiety and/or fear that’s been keeping you away from the dentist’s office for so long. Other advantages include feeling no pain during the dental procedure, with your experiencing minimal side effects after the procedure is completed.
