Dental Anxiety

Did you know anxiety can be related to your dreams? Do you have dental anxiety? Ask the team at Dr. Tenaglia's about NuCalm and how it's natural components help subside anxiety for our patients in the chair.

Unknown to some patients, there are some options outside of narcotics or controlled substances that can help with dental anxiety. We know that many patients have a fear of the dentist, what we don’t’ know is how bad. There are many reasons why and many levels of anxiety.

Each person has their own reason why they have anxiety, whether it comes from a bad experience, bad story or just generalized anxiety about the word “doctor. Because of these many possible reasons, we at Dr. Tenaglia’s make sure to individualize each and every appointment to exemplify the positives of the said appointment.

What we are excited about at Dr. Tenaglia’s is the option to use NuCalm. This is an all-natural way to help relieve anxiety in the dental chair. NuCalm uses multiple human senses to maximize its effect, from sound and vision to nerve stimulation. The Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation device produces low amounts of electrical current. This easy-to-use device has been cleared by the FDA for the treatment of anxiety, depression, and insomnia. (https://www.nucalm.com/The-Science/)

Our team at Dr.Tenaglia’s, have experienced NuCalm and have reported no significant side effects or have reported any recuperation needed before resuming daily activities. Dr. Tenaglia was quoted saying, “My cleaning has never seemed to go so quick and relaxing in all my years practicing as it did using NuCalm today”. Since then, Dr. Tenaglia has used NuCalm in a time of stress and has been able to think clearly upon ending the NuCalm sequence.

Feel free today to ask one of our team members about how to optimize your next appointment. We promise you that you’ll leave feeling refreshed and happy that you chose our team to treat your dental needs. Your anxiety will seem as it never existed and it will make it easier to care for your oral health going forward.
