Q. What is Alpha-Stim?
A. This technology is a “non-drug” way to treat anxiety, pain, depression, and insomnia. In the dentist’s office, it offers a safe, fast, and effective way to relieve fears.
Q. What can I expect?
A. After discussing Alpha-Stim with Dr. Fallah, the approach is as simple as wearing electrodes that clip to your earlobes. The cellphone-sized Alpha-Stim sends gentle electrical signals to your brain, which reduce anxiety.
Q. What is the science behind Alpha-Stim?
A. Alpha-Stim helps to modulate your brain’s electrochemical signals. When these signals aren’t functioning properly, the hormones and neurotransmitters that regulate your moods and emotions are thrown out-of-whack. Many of Dr. Fallah’s patients feel an immediate improvement, often after a few minutes of use.
