NTI appliances

NTI stand for Nociceptive Trigeminal Inhibition; NTI dental appliances are used alleviate pain associated with migraines, TMJ dysfunction, and bruxism (chronic grinding of the teeth).

These custom acrylic mouthpieces are small, simple to use, and comfortable. Essentially the NTI appliance suppresses your nerves from transmitting negative pain impulses, allowing your jaw to relax. This treatment is non-invasive, non-surgical, and medication-free!

Ozone Dentistry

Ozone dentistry is using medical grade oxygen (O2), which is treated with high energy to break apart the O2 molecules to create additional oxygen (O) molecules that are picked up by other O2 molecules to create O3 or ozone.

This Oxygen/Ozone gas is then applied to a dental cavity in this highly reactive form to sterilize the tooth and promote your body’s ability to heal itself. This revolutionary treatment uses modified oxygen, water and the same minerals that are found in your teeth to treat early cavities non-invasively. The treatment process is painless and quiet—ideal for patients with dental anxiety! If the cavity is too large, Oxygen/Ozone can be used to sterilize out the deeper prepared tooth surfaces to help prevent possible root canals or tooth sensitivities. This process is extremely safe and has many uses in dentistry from treating cavities, gum disease, root canals, infections and soft tissue inflammations.

NuCalm®

Get the Relaxing, Comfortable Dental Treatment You Need With All-Natural NuCalm®!

NuCalm®, what’s that?

NuCalm® a completely natural relaxation protocol that helps dental patients remain comfortable during dental treatment. After using NuCalm® patients leave our office feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.

How does it work?

NuCalm® treatment combines a few different techniques to relax the patient. The purpose of NuCalm® is to coax the patient into the first stage of sleep. NuCalm® is designed to shift brain waves from high frequency beta brain waves (wakefulness) to lower frequency alpha/theta waves (deep relaxation).

What exactly happens during treatment?

There are four consecutive steps to NuCalm®:

  • First you’ll take a dietary supplement. This supplement helps to counteract the effects of adrenaline in your body.
  • Next, our dental team will attach small microcurrent stimulation patches behind your ears. Low-level electrical currents facilitate your body’s relaxation response.
  • Then, you’ll put on a pair of noise-dampening headphones. These headphones play soothing music that has been optimized calming neuroacoustic tones. As you listen to these sounds, you’ll fall deeper into a stage of pre-sleep.
  • The final step is for you to put on light blocking glasses. These glasses are so important—they help you block out distractions and potentially stressful stimuli!

It takes only moments for the effects of NuCalm® to kick in—you’ll notice the difference right away!

Why choose NuCalm®?

Dental patients of all ages choose NuCalm® because it:

  • Is effective
  • Is completely natural
  • Starts working in minutes
  • Doesn’t include any medications or narcotics
  • Does not require the patient to receive injections
  • Does not incapacitate you physically or mentally (you’re never unconscious)
  • Is free from side effects—you won’t have to wait for the effects to wear off post-treatment
  • Is relaxing and rejuvenating

NuCalm® is suitable for all kinds of dental patients, and it is great for those people who avoid dental treatment due to fear and anxiety.
