Anxiety Relief Techniques in Denver, CO

NuCalm Technology

NuCalm is a revolutionary technology designed to relax the body without the use of drugs. It puts patients in a deeply relaxed state, which mimics the body’s normal preparation for sleep, eliminating the need for narcotics or controlled substances. NuCalm has no side effects, meaning there is no recuperation time or supervision needed after treatment. Patients feel relaxed and rejuvenated after treatments or surgery, creating a much more enjoyable dentist experience. Additionally, patients feel wide awake and alert, allowing them to drive immediately after their appointment. Dr. Whatcott uses this advanced technique to assure the comfort of his patients and provide them with a more relaxing dental visit. 

How NuCalm Promotes Painless Dentistry

NuCalm contributes to painless dentistry by remaining the only patent in the world that can effectively balance and maintain the human autonomic nervous system naturally. The components of the NuCalm technology include the following: 

  • NuCalm Biosignal Processing Disc – The biosignal processing disc delivers electromagnetic frequency patterns to the body. The disc is placed on the inside of the ear, at your Pericardium-6 acupuncture point, and sends a signal to the heart, which in turn transmits these signals to the brain. These frequencies assist the brain in interrupting adrenaline and cortisol release, increasing vagal nerve output and slowing down cellular actions. This process works to mimic the body’s naturally occurring transition to sleep. 
  • NuCalm Neuroacoustic Software App – Through highlysophisticated neuroacoustic software, NuCalm is capable of delivering frequencies that guide the brain to the Theta wavelength, also known as the restorative and healing “zone” within the brain. 
  • Light-Blocking Eye Mask – The NuCalm eye mask helps eliminate any visual stimuli so patients can effortlessly maintain a state of deep relaxation and sense of sleep. 

By combining all three of these NuCalm componentsColorado Advanced Dentistry ensures patients can achieve feelings of deep relaxation while simultaneously feeling less anxiety while visiting our Lakewood, CO office.

Dentist in Denver Offering Patients Pinhole Gum Surgery

Colorado Advanced Dentistry is pleased to offer Denver, CO patients the innovative and non-invasive gum recession treatment optionThe Pinhole Surgical Technique! Dr. Whatcott is one of the only dentists in Denver, and one of the handful of dentists in the entire world, that is trained and licensed to perform this revolutionary surgery. The Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST) works to rejuvenate areas where gums are receding. This gum recession treatment does not involve any cutting, stitching, or grafts, which promotes painless dentistry due to low levels of swelling, pain, and bleeding after treatment is complete. At Colorado Advanced Dentistry, our mission is to provide a gentler, more personalized approach to gum recession care that offers alternatives to more conventional gum recession surgeries. Below are some of the additional benefits of PST: 

  • Significantly less treatment time compared most other conventional receding gum surgeries.  
  • This innovative gum recession treatment can treat as many teeth in one sitting as the patient and dentist see fit.  
  • Traditional treatment options use the patient’s own tissue, which offers limitations on how much of the area can be treated at one time and can require multiple rounds of palatal grafting. 
  • The pinhole technique works to restore the natural look of the gum line almost immediately following treatment.
