Dr. K. Cheyn Gunnerson

Dr. Gunnerson did his undergraduate work at the University of Utah, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science and Medical Biology. He received his dental degree from  Oregon Health Sciences University, where he graduated with Honors in the top 5 percent of his class.As a dentist in Payson, Utah, Dr. Gunnerson sees continuing education as a way to constantly improve the quality care he provides to you as a patient. This includes the use of CEREC, which allows him to provide dental crowns, bridges, and onlays in just one visit! That’s because he can make the restorations in his office rather than send them off to a lab.SICAT cone beam CT imaging gives Dr. Gunnerson the precise information he needs for diagnosis and treatment of many different oral and general health conditions. He can use this technology in combination with the CEREC machine to produce a 3D replica of your orofacial structures, including the soft tissue of your airway. This helps him diagnose sleep apnea and plan oral appliance therapy. Dr. Gunnerson is the first dentist in the state of Utah to provide this technology.

Value of a NuCalm Dentist in Payson

In the US, too few people see their dentist for preventive care. People should see their dentist about twice a year for proper care, but not everyone even sees their dentist once. In Payson, less than 70% of people make a dental appointment even once a year. This puts not just their teeth at risk, but their overall health. Gum disease has been linked to heart disease, dementia, autoimmune disorders, cancer, and other systemic illnesses.

Why aren’t people seeing their dentist? Anxiety is a big part of it. Many people avoid making dental appointments because they are afraid of the dentist, and their fear increases the longer they go without making a dental appointment. Sedation offers one way for patients to see the dentist, but not everyone wants to get drugged at the dentist. NuCalm dentists offer another alternative: relaxation without drugs. NuCalm uses neuroscience to disarm your body’s anxiety response so you can feel more like you’re relaxing at home and not sitting in a dental chair.

NuCalm’s Value Beyond the Dental Chair

NuCalm can help with more than just feeling comfortable at the dentist. NuCalm disarms the body’s anxiety response, which isn’t limited to dental anxiety. It can help with chronic stress and tension. When you use NuCalm, you enter a deeply meditative state, the kind that many people can only achieve after years of dedicated practice.

With NuCalm, a dentist visit can become the most relaxing thing you do all week. It helps you combat the chronic stress and exhaustion of daily life so you feel more energized and better prepared to do great things with your day.

NuCalm dentist Dr. Gunnerson is proud to offer this relaxing, energizing option to his patients in Payson, UT, Provo, and beyond.
