Nobody loves coming to the dentist and Dr. David Little understands that. A dentist in San Antonio, Texas, Dr. Little offers many options to his patients to make the dental experience as pleasant as possible.
Dr. Little uses the NuCalm system, which is a non-narcotic relaxation technique involving four different things. The patient takes a dietary supplement that makes them feel relaxed, they wear noise-blocking headphones that also play acoustic music to make them relax, they wear dark glasses to block out the light and lastly, they wear electrostimulators behind the ears. This whole process put together really makes the patient feel relaxed, like they're having a spa-like experience, Dr. Little says. "It's a really good, non-narcotic solution for patients," he adds.
For those patients wanting a little more, he can combine the NuCalm with nitrous oxide, or laughing gas. For those who "don't even want to know they were there," IV sedation can be used or oral sedation, both of which would require someone else to drive them home. Both of those options are safe and closely monitored.
