NuCalm System

For many people, dental visits are anything but relaxing. Dr. Kovtun wants his patients to experience the positive aspects of routine and restorative dental care and is happy to offer a revolutionary new way to promote natural relaxation during your visits!

NuCalm cream

NuCalm is not only effective at reducing the effects of dental anxiety; it provides you and your family with an all-natural approach to relaxation.
Do you hate the idea of needles or pills to help you relax in the dental chair? NuCalm cream works in a completely different way! A quick application of the proprietary NuCalm cream onto each carotid artery brings about a wonderful sense of relaxation very quickly and with no side effects.

The physiology of anxiety

The sensations we experience when we are anxious are the biological responses to a threat. Whether this threat is real or perceived, the body gets prepared by the brain to "fight" or "flee." Our natural fight or flight response occurs as the body is filled with adrenaline and the mind loses its ability to rationalize away fear. Within anxiety are behavioral, emotional, somatic, and cognitive components, all of which act synergistically to cause worry, apprehension, and all-out fear. In the moments during which anxiety is ongoing, one may experience headache, muscle tension, irritability, stomach pain, shortness of breath, chest pain, nausea, heart palpitations and more.

How anxiety affects dental care

Even mild anxiety can have a negative impact on dental care. On an obvious level, fear of dentistry may lead one to avoid seeing the dentist. In the absence of routine preventative care, dental problems may develop and grow to a point that pain cannot be alleviated without restorative care. When dental visits only occur when some type of urgent, painful situation arises, the patient is robbed of the opportunity to gain better experiences in the dental office. When dental care is given to an anxious patient who does not receive assistance for relaxation, such as NuCalm, the muscles around the face and jaw may be tense, compromising the efficiency of treatment.

How NuCalm helps

Dr. Kovtun is insistent that his patients feel comfortable during their visits. NuCalm cream is a natural solution that works transdermally to calm the anxious mind and relax tensed muscles simultaneously. Applied to the neck, ingredients such as L-Theanine and Gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA) reduce the responsive activity of excited neurons in the brain, leading to improved emotional and physical comfort.
NuCalm is not the standard sedative. After treatment, patients feel relaxed and refreshed, not groggy. Learn more about your options for more pleasant dental care during your next visit to our friendly office.
