Rating: 5 Dermatologist Walnut Creek - Five Star Reviews By James W.
Dr. William E. Virtue DDS, NMD
I have been going to Dr. Virtue's dental office for many years after going to many other dentists in the area with no sucess. This practice is the TOTAL EXPERIENCE! From the time in walk in until you walk out you feel that not only are you in the best hands but that you are among experienced, caring friends. Not only do they care about their patients but about each other and it is apparent from the first visit. If you are looking for a dentist I strongly recommend Virtue Dental Care in Yadkinville. It is worth trying. Bet you can't just go one time!

NuCalm gives patients drug-free method of relaxation dentistry
NuCalm Yadkinville - Logo People who suffer with dental anxiety have an extremely hard time relaxing in the dental chair. For some, the fear can even keep them out of the office completely. While sedation dentistry has been available to patients for many years, there are many people out there who do not like the idea of taking medication to keep them calm. For patients interested in a drug-free form of relaxation, we offer NuCalm. NuCalm utilizes the brain’s own internal mechanisms to replace feelings of anxiety with relaxation and serenity.

How NuCalm Works

NuCalm Yadkinville - Itroduction NuCalm works by putting patients into the calming alpha (beginning) stages of sleep. Anyone who has ever put their head down at night after a particularly long day knows the feelings of relaxation that occur as the worries of the world disappear, eyes begin to become heavy, and you begin to drift off into sleep.

Anxiety is the body’s natural response to a perceived threat. Once we begin to feel a threat, whether it is perceived or real, the body begins to produce adrenaline and we lose our ability to rationalize away the anxiety. Anxiety responses can be behavioral, emotional, or somatic. All of these components are what causes feelings of worry and apprehension. Physical responses to anxiety can include chest pain, heart palpitations, nausea, headaches, muscle tension, shortness of breath, or irritability.

When NuCalm is utilized, patients are incapable of having the physiological and biological responses to anxiety. Many patients describe NuCalm as similar to a deep meditation experience.

The NuCalm system is scientifically designed to transition your brain through the steps it follows right before you fall asleep. The four-prong approach includes supplements, Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation, calming music, and light-blocking eye masks.

The supplements control the body’s cortisol and adrenaline production, which affects how you respond to stress and anxiety, helping you drift into a sleep state. CES helps your body absorb these supplements by activating the brain receptors. Headphones with calming music along with light blocking glasses continue to help your body block out activity and response to light and sound to maintain your relaxed state.
