If you have claustrophobia, you avoid enclosed spaces. If you have arachnophobia, you stay away from spiders. Fair enough! But if you fear the dentist you may be inclined to avoid checkups. At Victor H. Burdick Jr., DDS in Littleton, we know this is a bad idea.
The connection between your dental health and overall health is by now well-established. Skipping regular checkups due to fear, or any other reason, puts your general health at risk, too.

A solution that works is NuCalm, a drug-free treatment for dental anxiety.
NuCalm works by stimulating the body’s natural relaxation abilities. First we administer GABA (gamma aminobutyric acid), which works to relax your brain. Noise-canceling headphones deliver a neuroacoustic pattern to deepen your relaxation. Finally, a light-blocking eye mask shuts out any remaining external stimuli.
The NuCalm alternative has helped countless patients at Victor H. Burdick Jr., DDS in Littleton get the treatment they deserve. People from Ken Caryl, Englewood, and Centennial come to us for general dentistry services, and all their dental care needs. Call us to schedule an appointment today!
