Benefits of NuCalm
When we consider the benefits of NuCalm, the cost is quite reasonable.
NuCalm is a technology with many benefits. Not only can it be used as an add-on therapy to relieve anxiety for patients, but even for those without anxiety, it can provide a more positive patient experience. Patients may experience true relaxation during their visit, which can come with many benefits:
- Increase energy
- Improve sleep quality
- Stimulate digestion
- Decrease stress hormone production (cortisol & adrenaline)
- Lower heart rate
- Slow breathing rate
- Decrease blood pressure
- Increase blood flow / circulation
- Enhance immune function
- A more positive mood/emotional state when leaving the provider’s office than when they came in
Many providers have reported that patients recover faster and have fewer complications when they use NuCalm.
Can I Get My Own NuCalm Machine?
Many people first experience NuCalm at the doctor, dentist, physical therapist or other provider’s office, then decide they want to have one at home. You can pick up your own NuCalm system at our shop. The cost of a personal NuCalm Performance Package is $4,695.00. That gives you a complete NuCalm system that you can use at home whenever you want. It includes supplies for 100 NuCalm sessions. Supplies for additional sessions can be purchased at our shop, as well.
Decide How Much to Charge for NuCalm
Providers, as well as patients, experience benefits from NuCalm. Working with more relaxed, comfortable and happy patients makes for a less stressful and more rewarding workday. NuCalm allows procedures to be completed more quickly; and it allows the provider to focus on performing their best work without worrying about an anxious patient. Many providers see enough value in this that they will provide NuCalm as an add-on service at a discount or even for free; or they may offer NuCalm for no charge with longer, more complicated treatments, but have a charge for NuCalm in conjunction with shorter procedures.
Many providers believe that patients cannot truly appreciate the benefits of NuCalm until they have tried it, and may offer NuCalm free or at reduced cost at first, but increase the cost later.
Does Insurance Cover NuCalm?
Currently, no insurance companies list coverage for NuCalm. It is likely considered an optional treatment, comparable to a luxury or cosmetic procedure. It may be possible to cover it through a Health Savings Account, but we recommend you contact your provider to confirm.
Variability in the Cost of NuCalm
One reason why we cannot give specific quotes about the cost of NuCalm is that the costs of dental procedures vary widely across the country. We could give a range of costs, but if they were inclusive of the costs your dentist might charge, the range might not seem useful.
Let’s look at a couple of examples in the USA using the database of RealSelf, a website where people share information about their experience with various cosmetic procedures, including cosmetic dentistry. Smile makeovers with porcelain veneers have an average cost of about $7000, but that includes a range that goes from about $275 to $29,000. Straightening teeth with Invisalign has an average cost of about $5000 and a much smaller range, from about $3000 to $8500.
As you can see, costs vary widely around the country and worldwide. NuCalm costs will likely be a fraction of that for either of these procedures, ranging from free to about $500.
The only way to get a reliable quote about the cost of NuCalm in your area is to talk to a local NuCalm dentist about their pricing practices.
