Experience stress-free, comfortable, efficient dentistry in Louisville, CO with NuCalm

NuCalm® Logo

Could you use a tranquil break in your busy day? Louisville, CO family dentist Dr. Tracey Hughes takes a personalized approach to dental care. Her gentle demeanor and one-patient-at-a-time philosophy let you know you are welcome and receiving her full attention. She also offers NuCalm, a soothing solution that can help you relax for treatment, with benefits that may extend long after your visit.

What is NuCalm?

NuCalm is high-tech stress relief. Patients who experience dental anxiety or avoid oral care due to fear of the dentist can feel totally relaxed during treatment. This revolutionary relaxation technique is a safe, natural alternative to traditional sedation dentistry. NuCalm is non-invasive and does not use any sedatives, affording patients a drug-free state of total relaxation.

Nucalm treatment

How is NuCalm administered?

A combination of distinct therapies interrupts stress signals from adrenalin and cortisol, guiding a physiological change in the midbrain region similar to what occurs as you are falling asleep.

  • The first step is application of lavender calming cream, as instructed by Dr. Hughes.
  • A neuropatch is placed behind each ear delivering gentle electromagnetic microcurrents.
  • The NuCalm device includes headphones that replace external sounds with pleasant neuroacoustic frequencies.
  • Light blocking glasses or an eye mask further reduce stressful stimulus.
  • Now simply sit back and relax as your whole being slips into a natural recovery zone.

How do patients in Louisville, CO benefit from NuCalm?

When dental treatment is completed, you feel revived and refreshed. Because NuCalm is non-medicinal, there is no residual grogginess – you may return to your daily routine immediately, without side effects. While NuCalm’s sleep benefits are not the emphasis during dental treatment, it is a natural “off switch” for your mind and body, so you may experience improved sleep quality after your appointment.
