NuCalm FAQs

People have many questions about NuCalm, so we’ve compiled some of the most common ones we get from people considering NuCalm relaxation dentistry.

What is NuCalm?

NuCalm is a relaxation system that uses your body’s natural processes to interrupt its stress response and help you enjoy a comfortable, resting state similar to deep meditation. It is:

  • All natural
  • Drug free
  • Very safe
  • Easy to experience

It consists of four components. First, there are natural supplements that use food-sourced materials to stimulate the release of your body’s natural sleep neurotransmitters. A mild electric stimulus applied to patches behind the ears encourages it to absorb these nutrients which are not utilized during stressful situations.. You also wear headphones that play music embedded with a special neuroacoustic software. Finally, you will wear dark glasses or an eye mask to block out light which is one of the most powerful stimulants to the brain..

Is NuCalm effective?

Yes! NuCalm users experience a sense of rest and deep relaxation. 95% of NuCalm users report that they would use it again, and 98% of them say they would recommend it to family and friends. Based on effectiveness data included in the application, the system was awarded a patent – the only one in the world – for “…systems and methods for establishing and maintaining the health and balance of the human autonomic nervous system.” The autonomic nervous system controls body functions you don’t consciously direct, such as breathing, heartbeat, and digestion.

What does NuCalm feel like?

NuCalm feels very much like drifting peacefully off to sleep, though you probably won’t actually fall asleep. Instead, you’ll hover at the edge of sleep, feeling weightless and having your thoughts free to roam. Many people don’t feel much of anything, but still reap the benefits deep relaxation offers.

How long does NuCalm take?

Unlike sedation dentistry which can take a long time to administer and recover from, NuCalm takes two minutes to administer and less than 5 minutes to achieve its effects. Recovery takes about the same length of time, so you are perfectly capable of driving  to and from your appointment and can easily return to work or enjoy the remainder of your day.

Who will benefit from NuCalm?

Everyone can benefit from NuCalm’s relaxing effects. People will be able to rest, relax, and enjoy dental and doctor visits as never before, and they may even experience some positive side effects of the treatment. In particular, NuCalm can help the body heal and recover more quickly from treatment and injury.

Are there any side effects of NuCalm?

With over 450,000 NuCalm sessions nationwide, there has not been a single reported adverse event–no one has had a serious event related to the treatment. Most people experience positive side effects, such as increased energy, better sleep at night, and reduced overall stress.

Can everyone use NuCalm?

NuCalm is very safe, and there are no strict contraindications for NuCalm. However, we like to be on the safe side–that’s how we’ve been able to approach half a million treatments with no adverse events–so we recommend that some people not use all components of the NuCalm system. Women who are pregnant or nursing should not use the dietary supplements or the cream. People with pacemakers, VADs (ventricular assist devices), or other medical implants should not use the CES. Individuals with claustrophobia should not use the light blocking mask.

Can I still use NuCalm if I’m taking prescription medications?

Yes. The natural ingredients in NuCalm won’t interact with your medication. Unless explicitly told to avoid NuCalm or any of its components, there is no concern.
