Our team of dental professionals offers comprehensive and personalized dental treatments tailored to the unique needs and goals of the individual. We provide patients with educational information so that they can make informed decisions about their dental health.
NuCalm: Overcoming Dental Anxiety
For patients with a more severe fear of the dentist office, we offer the revolutionary NuCalm system. Dr. Ahrabi will discuss all sedation options with patients during their dental consultation. Your safety and well being are our top priority, and Dr. Ahrabi will help you choose what sedation options are appropriate to help you relax while receiving quality dental care.
NuCalm is an effective alternative to traditional sedation methods and can be used to help high-risk patients who are unable to undergo other forms of sedation. Patients can return to their daily activities immediately after treatment and can drive themselves to and from their appointment.
I can't speak highly enough of Dr. Ahrabi. I've gone to him every six months for my regular cleanings for about three years now. Dr. A is super-friendly, as is the rest of his staff. He explains everything he does…Joshua D.

How NuCalm Works
First, Dr. Ahrabi will apply a topical cream, or supply you with a dietary supplement to be chewed. This step is to help your body counteract the adrenaline that makes you feel anxious.This will create a natural feeling of relaxation.
Then small, noninvasive micro current stimulation patches are placed behind each ear. These help to facilitate the body most relaxed state. Noise-dampening headphones are worn and provide gentle and soothing sounds taking your brain to a pre-sleep state. A light-blocking eye mask is worn to help keep you in a relaxed state.
These four simple elements allow patients to rest in a blissful state of relaxation. With out the use of narcotics, you can remain aware of your surroundings while feeling totally and entirely relaxed.
