Sedation Dentistry | NuCalm
Orthodantics Dubai

"As an Expat from the USA, I struggled to find a dentist in Dubai that was up to the standards. Dr. Abdolreza Nassouti took such wonderful care of me on an emergency treatment, with follow-up care and the use of state of the art technology; so I continued my general services at the clinic with satisfaction. The clinic and his services were even better than my treatments in the USA that I am sad to leave the UAE and begin another search."

Sedation Dentistry

If you fear going to the dentist, you are not alone. Between 9% and 20% of Americans avoid going to the dentist because of anxiety or fear. Indeed, it is a universal phenomenon.

Although it’s common, giving in to fear and allowing it to prevent you from seeking dental care is dangerous, can negatively affect your health and cost you a lot of money.

Thankfully, it doesn’t have to be this way. Here at German Dental and Neuromucular Clinic, we offer two alternatives to help you through dental visits. We have the NuCalm and the Nitrous Sedation (Laughing Gas).

NuCalm

The NuCalm a natural and completely drug-free relaxation method to help limit dental anxiety and encourage a calming dental experience. This proven neuro-science technology helps bring your body and mind to a deep state of calm in just a few minutes. You’ll feel relaxed throughout your dentist appointment.

Over 700,000 dental patients have used NuCalm;95% of those patients say they would use it again, and 98% say they would recommend it to their family members and friends.

  • How Does NuCalm Work?

    NuCalm is a proven and safe technology that helps you relax without the use of narcotics, benzodiazepines, or other controlled substances.
    NuCalm is the only technology patented as "Systems and Methods for Balancing and Maintaining the Health of the Human Autonomic Nervous System."
    The autonomic nervous system is an involuntary nervous system that controls many aspects of your body's function, including the regulation of your organs as well as the management of your body’s "fight-or-flight" response. It's what kicks in and makes your heart start racing, your muscles start twitching, your pupils dilating, and you break out in a cold sweat.
    By regulating this system, NuCalm disarms your body’s stress response.
    By listening to NuCalm, the system brings brain waves to a certain frequency, and the system creates a natural relaxation response in your body enabling you to feel calm and balanced throughout your dental appointment. NuCalm’s 4-step system helps bring your body to a deep state of relaxation. The NuCalm 4-Step System:
    1. Apply a NuCalm Topical Cream of the natural relaxation hormone GABA (gamma aminobutyric acid), which your body naturally produces to help you to sleep.
    2. Place Microcurrent Stimulation Patches Behind Each Ear
    3. Use Noise-Dampening Headphones with Neuro-Acoustic Sound Patterns
    4. Wear a Comfortable, Light-Blocking Eye Mask

  • Is NuCalm Safe?

    One of the benefits of NuCalm is that it is very, very safe. Although NuCalm is new, most of the components have been used for decades in clinical settings with an outstanding safety record. And the NuCalm system altogether has an outstanding safety record. With over 700,000 procedures, and no adverse effects reported, NuCalm is a safe and effective approach to getting and staying relaxed at the dentist.
    While sedation dentistry does have the same goal of helping you feel calmer during your appointment, the difference comes in the methods used to achieve relaxation.
    Sedation dentistry uses medication to help you relax – whether it’s inhalation sedation (through nitrous oxide), enteral sedation (with medication in a pill form), or intravenous sedation. Since sedation dentistry uses drugs to help you relax, it can have many side effects afterwards, including lightheadedness, dizziness, mental fogginess, nausea, or a hangover/jet lag feeling. With many forms of sedation you need someone to drive you to and from your dental appointment, and may need to spend the rest of the day at home recovering.
    NuCalm, on the other hand, is completely natural and has no recovery time or side effects. It’s 100% natural, safe, and a great way to feel calm and relaxed during your dental appointment. You can drive yourself to and from your appointment, can return to your normal routine immediately, and may even feel better when you leave than when you arrived.

  • How do I know if NuCalm will be effective?

    NuCalm isn’t only used by progressive dentists to help their patients relax – it has been used by sports trainers to help professional athletes manage cortisol; high-powered professionals to maximize performance; therapists to treat anxiety and PTSD; and wellness providers to improve heart health, strengthen the immune systems, and slow the aging process. And of course, it can help anyone get a better night’s sleep.

  • What is nitrous oxide?

    Nitrous oxide is an odorless and colorless gas. In the early 1800s a British scientist found that inhaling nitrous produces highly pleasurable sensations. New York dentist Horace Wells learned in 1844 that nitrous could distract patients from acute pain such as the type associated with tooth extraction. Dentistry has relied upon nitrous oxide ever since then, but the techniques, type of gas mixture and delivery methods have been greatly improved.

  • What is nitrous oxide/oxygen sedation?

    Undiluted nitrous oxide - as it was used in the nineteenth century - can cause hypoxia. Hypoxia occurs when the body is deprived of an adequate oxygen supply, leading to dizziness and other problems. Fortunately scientists have found that combining nitrous oxide with oxygen all but eliminates the danger of hypoxia. This mixture is now used to calm many millions of anxious patients annually, all around the world. Nitrous oxide and oxygen sedation is used not only in dental offices but in hospitals and outpatient and inpatient settings.

  • What is the effect of this type of sedation?

    Sedation encourages a state of relaxation. It ranges along a spectrum from minimal on one end to general anesthesia on the other (this generally applies to surgery patients in a hospital setting). During minimal sedation patients can still hear, see and respond to the action taking place around them. Sedated patients are much less likely to experience anxiety as a result of these environmental stimuli. Nitrous oxide and oxygen sedation falls within the mildest category of sedation. Patients may feel tingling or a sense of well-being. However they remain alert. Once inhalation is discontinued the effects end also, often within seconds.

  • What is laughing gas?

    Laughing gas refers to nitrous oxide and oxygen sedation. When scientists first studied the effects of nitrous oxide they noticed that users felt so giddy or ecstatic while breathing the gas that they often laughed or giggled. Nitrous oxide and oxygen sedation is still known by the term laughing gas in many parts of the world.

  • How is nitrous oxide and oxygen sedation given to patients?

    Nitrous oxide and oxygen gases are stored in canisters and delivered to patients via a tube and small mask. A flowmeter regulates the amount of nitrous oxide and oxygen delivered. This simple and straightforward system is easy for the dentist and dental staff to operate and maintain.

  • Is nitrous oxide and oxygen sedation safe?

    Because nitrous oxide and oxygen sedation has become a mainstay of medical and dental practice, researchers have been able to study it across many decades. They know how nitrous oxide and oxygen sedation affects very young patients, pregnant women and the elderly. They have documented reactions that occur between nitrous and the medications millions of people take every day. This careful research has revealed that nitrous oxide and oxygen sedation is extremely safe for the vast majority of people.
    Among the most famous studies is that conducted by Dr. Gardner Colton of New York's Columbia University. Colton documented more than 193,000 cases without a fatality. The work of Dr. Niels Bjorn was even more striking. He followed over 4 million cases, again without finding a single death.
    Nitrous oxide and oxygen sedation carries few if any side effects and produces no known allergic response. For these reasons it makes a nearly ideal form of anxiety relief in the contemporary dental office.

  • Which patients are appropriate for nitrous oxide and oxygen sedation?

    Patients ranging from the very young to the elderly have been safely treated with nitrous oxide and oxygen sedation.
    Who is not a good candidate for nitrous oxide and oxygen sedation?
    Women in their first trimester of pregnancy are not good candidates for nitrous oxide and oxygen sedation. Patients with emphysema or those who have recently undergone ear surgery should also avoid nitrous.

  • Are there any side effects?

    While rare, side effects have been linked to the use of nitrous oxide and oxygen sedation. These most often include nausea and vomiting, and result because too much nitrous oxide has been used. Several studies confirm the lack of side effects for children-- fewer than 1 percent were reported, and most were symptoms of nausea and vomiting. Side effects are quickly reversed with the elimination of nitrous and the addition of pure oxygen gas.

  • Can nitrous oxide and oxygen sedation be used for any type of pain relief?

    Nitrous oxide and oxygen sedation is an analgesic, which means it relieves pain and anxiety. However, it is a very weak anesthetic (numbing agent). That means it would not be effective at blocking pain over long periods of time, such as the hours necessary to complete a typical surgical procedure.

  • Does my dentist or the office staff need special training?

    Your dentist and the dental office staff do need special training to administer nitrous oxide and oxygen sedation. Depending on the state or province you live in they also require a permit to provide this service. You should never hesitate to ask the dentist or staff member if you have any questions about techniques, side effects equipment or training.

  • Does my dentist or the office staff need special training?

Depending on the state or province you live in they also require a permit to provide this service. You should never hesitate to ask the dentist or staff member if you have any questions about techniques, side effects equipment or training.

  • How do I know whether the equipment is functioning properly?

    The flowmeter ensures that patients receive the right mixture of nitrous oxide and oxygen gas. (This percentage will range according to your specific needs and situation.) The flowmeter contains a safeguard which actually prevents the delivery of unsafe levels. Some states and provinces require that this equipment be certified either annually or biannually.

  • Is exposure to excessive nitrous oxide dangerous?

    Studies around the world have assessed the dangers of exposure to nitrous oxide in the dental setting. These have generally concluded that the amount of gas a patient receives during treatment is too small to be hazardous.
    Research is less conclusive regarding the exposure of dental staff to nitrous oxide gas. And government regulations urge precautions be used to reduce the levels of unscavenged gas staff experience. For this reason you may be asked to wear a small plastic mask as well as minimize how much you talk. If this happens be assured your dental team is simply following current best practices about how to create the safest possible environment for all.
