Why do people become so anxious when it’s time to visit the dentist? Even when they accept the fact that good dental health is important to their overall health and happiness, they still find excuses not to go to the dentist. Why? It’s mostly fear of pain, and for many people, it’s specifically fear of pain from shots. It’s the number one problem dentists encounter with their patients on a daily basis. And it’s one of the primary reasons that many people avoid seeing a dentist altogether. To counter this sense of apprehension, Dr. Ron VanWechel offers a variety of anxiety reducing options to his patients.
NuCalm is a revolutionary technology designed to relax the body without drugs. The NuCalm system creates a deep relaxed state that naturally mimics the body’s normal preparation for sleep. NuCalm is unique because it creates deep relaxation without using narcotics or controlled substances, causes no side effects, and requires no recuperative time or supervision. The patient’s post treatment experience is a feeling of relaxation and rejuvenation. And the patient is alert, wide awake and able to drive immediately after the appointment.
NuCalm is just one of the many advanced techniques Dr. VanWechel uses to assure the calm and comfort of his patients. FDA cleared LANAP (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure), the virtually painless laser gum therapy, is the comfortable alternative to traditional cut and stitch gum surgery. And the Wand computerized anesthetic injection system is the perfect solution for patients who have a deep-seated fear of needles. Dr. VanWechel is also trained to provide his patients Oral Sedation with prescription medications. Every tool and procedure at Colorado Advanced Dentistry is utilized to provide the safest and most comfortable patient experience.
