NuCalm® Holistic Sedation in Massapequa, NY
Discover deep relaxation and anxiety-free dentistry
NuCalm® Makes Dentistry Better!
Nearly everyone’s heart rate goes up a little before a visit to the dentist. We get it. But for many people, feelings of worry can lead to canceled appointments and lost opportunities to improve their dental health.
If you suffer from dental anxiety (even just a little) you might be hesitant to try medical sedation dentistry options. But fortunately, there’s a completely natural and holistic form of sedation available at Greater Long Island Dental in Massapequa.
Even if you don’t consider yourself “dental-phobic,” we’ll offer to let you try NuCalm®. It’s easy, natural, and can make your trip to our office more relaxing than you thought possible.
NuCalm® is a 3-step holistic system backed by neuroscience research that helps put your mind at ease and reduce feelings of stress and anxiety. Let us show you what NuCalm® is all about at your next appointment!

The NuCalm® System of Holistic Sedation
- You’ll wear a light-blocking mask to prevent distraction and visual stimulation
- Microcurrent stimulation patches soothe your brain waves
- Noise-canceling headphones with personalized sounds induce deep relaxation
In as little as 3 minutes you’ll begin to feel calmer. The best part of NuCalm is that it’s natural and won’t leave you feeling “groggy” or “out of it” after your appointment.
NuCalm aids in relaxation and improves your mental state. Our dentists use it in concert with local anesthesia which numbs your mouth to keep you from feeling pain during your treatment.
We’ll Help You Feel Your Best
Our approach to sedation dentistry is tailored to your needs. If you need a little more help to relax before treatment we offer nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas. It acts quickly, is extremely effective, and has very few side effects.
If you’ll be in our office for a longer procedure, ask your dentist about general anesthesia. We’ll bring in an anesthesiologist to oversee your care.
We will work to find a way to help you feel confident and comfortable during your visit to our office. While NuCalm® is a great first choice, we are confident we have a sedation option that will help you.
You’ll never be judged at Greater Long Island Dental. We’re thrilled you’ve chosen us as your dental team and we’ll do what it takes to help you get the care you need.
