Dr. Scott Shamblott from Shamblott Family Dentistry in Hopkins and St. Paul stopped in to show us how a new FDA-cleared technology called Alpha-Stim®️ works! The idea has been used by dentist since the 1800s. It uses cranial electrotherapy stimulation to deliver a patented waveform via two earclip electrodes to treat anxiety insomnia and depression.
It also has been proven to be effective in reducing anxiety when it comes to the dentist! Many patients suffer from dental anxiety and this is one way to make a trip to the dentist last stressful. it also can make things like nitrous oxide more effective.
