Chicago Dentist Relieves Your Worries with NuCalm

It is not uncommon for the team of Kaufman and Kaufman Smile Design Studio, LLC to encounter patients who are uneasy about visiting the dental chair. Dental anxiety affects millions of Americans. It can stem from a previous bad experience or just from the fear of the unknown. No matter the reason for dental anxiety, the dentists here in Chicago, IL are excited to offer a medication-free way to address the nervous energy that can make it difficult for patients to get the dental care they need. This is done with the use of NuCalm.


NuCalm is a patented system designed to improve the autonomic nervous system. By combining several elements together, patients can feel more relaxed and calm—especially during dental visits. In fact, NuCalm is used by many medical professionals to ease anxieties and have found it to be incredibly helpful even in patients with PTSD. This method calms nerves and lowers stress, allowing anxious patients to receive the dental care and attention they need for a healthier, more beautiful smile.


NuCalm incorporates four elements. The first is a chewable dietary supplement taken right away to counteract adrenaline. Then, microcurrent stimulation patches are placed behind the ears. A mask is worn over the eyes to block out light and distractions, while noise-dampening headphones provide neuroacoustic software that can bring the brain to the presleep stages. When all of these elements are working together, patients feel extremely relaxed and can go through their dental procedure with little to no anxiety.


When our dental team starts the process of NuCalm, patients will begin to feel relaxed in just a few minutes’ time. We wait until our patients are completely involved with their NuCalm service and are no longer anxious before we start the procedure. NuCalm can be used for more invasive treatments or even for simple cleanings and examinations.
