Therefore, for your convenience, we offer treatments that will reduce your anxiety in order to have a relaxed, enjoyable procedure.
Stressed for your next dental visit? Get NuCalmed!
NuCalm provides a uniquely positive experience, reduces your stress, and lets you leave feeling refreshed. NuCalm is a safe way to quickly relax you without using any narcotics or controlled substances. NuCalm is administered by our team at the beginning of your appointment. Most patients experience deep relaxation within 3 to 5 minutes while listening to music in our comfortable chair. Once your dental appointment is completed, you can leave our office immediately with no side effects.
Nitrous oxide, sometimes called "laughing gas," is one option offered to help make you more comfortable during certain procedures. Nitrous oxide is a safe and effective sedative agent that is mixed with oxygen and inhaled through a small mask that fits over your nose to help you relax. It is not intended to put you to sleep. You will be able to hear and respond to any requests or directions the dentist may have. You will be asked to breathe normally through your nose, and within a few short minutes you should start to feel the effects of the nitrous oxide. You may feel light-headed or a tingling in your arms and legs. Some people say their arms and legs feel heavy. Ultimately, you should feel calm and comfortable. The effects of nitrous oxide wear off soon after the mask is removed.
Regular checkups are an important part of maintaining a healthy smile!
The American Dental Association recommends visiting your dentist every six months for regular checkups and routine teeth cleanings to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
We understand that you have a busy schedule, so when you're preparing to visit the dentist, please remember that your first appointments can last between 45 and 90 minutes.
Our staff here at MGS Tewksbury Dental would be more then happy to offer some stress-free options to help maintain your health. Call us today to keep that smile in tact and looking better then ever!
