A man uses his Alpha-StimEnhance patient results with a proven, non-drug prescription for sleep

When you specialize in Dental Sleep Medicine, your patients come to you for guidance on how to finally find a solution to their longstanding sleep apnea and other sleep issues. Alpha-Stim is an FDA cleared, non-invasive medical device that has already impressed dentists with its ability to quell anxiety in patients who fear the dentist, as well as its fast relief of dental induced pain.

But in the field of Dental Sleep Medicine, Alpha-Stim is a powerful player for another reason: it brings relief from insomnia. Patients who use Alpha-Stim experience longer, better quality sleep – without relying on drugs or having to bear the side effects that accompany them. In fact, surveys show that patients get better results with Alpha-Stim than with prescription medications.

Backed by decades of experience and over 100 clinical research studies, Alpha-Stim has stood the test of time – simply because it works. Offer your patients Alpha-Stim and witness firsthand how much of an improvement it can make.

Your patients – and their well-rested smiles – will thank you.

Why Choose Alpha-Stim?

Alpha-Stim is compact and portable, delivering a patented electrical microcurrent through two small Earclip Electrodes to restore balance to the brain. Treatments are quick and easy, and will not interfere with any oral appliances or medical equipment that your patients may require.

While you can certainly prescribe medications to help your patients sleep, Alpha-Stim is a non-drug option that is both safe and proven effective. Sleep medications can cause unpleasant side effects and can lead to dependency. More frightening still, sleep medications have been proven to increase a person’s risk of death by more than 350% – even when fewer than 18 doses per year are consumed.1

Where research tells a cautionary tale of sleep medications, it proves that Alpha-Stim shines. In one study,, military Service Members with insomnia reported an increase of 43 minutes of sleep after only 5 Alpha-Stim treatments.2 In another, the number of subjects rating their quality of sleep as poor dropped from 60% to 5% at the end of the study.3

What you offer as a specialist is essential: patients with dental sleep disorders require your expertise and skills. With Alpha-Stim in your armamentarium, you can provide your patients an alternative insomnia treatment that will set your practice apart from the rest.

What dentists are saying…

“We understand that with dental visits can come a feeling of anxiety or intense fear. Sometimes it can lead to cancelling the appointment itself or sudden panic attacks.
Dr Lisa Lucey spends dedicated time with each patient building trust, confidence and caring relationships. However, she also understands that for some of her patients they may still feel anxious before treatment.
Dr Lisa introduced the Alpha-Stim to her practice and for some patients it has been life changing. It’s an alternative to oral medication with zero down time. You can still pop in for a visit on your lunch.”
– Lucey Dental

What patients are saying…

“My doctor prescribed the Alpha-Stim for my chronic insomnia. The first night I tried it, I went to sleep without any medication for the first time in years. It’s a small miracle! As I continue to use it, I find my mind is clearer, my moods more even and my stress level is at an all-time low. I’m extremely grateful to have discovered this wonderful device.” — Linda Segall

“Fantastic product I can’t recommend it highly enough. I use it every night for 20 minutes before I go to sleep and I wake up refreshed and calm. I no longer get an adrenaline spike in the morning which is great.” – Genee Schock, UK

Survey shows patients feel better with Alpha-Stim than with drugs

Survey shows patients using Alpha-Stim for anxiety treatment or pain treatment get better results and more relief than with drugs. So Alpha-Stim has proven to provide better results than medication and without the side effects.

“I haven’t slept more than four hours in a night in years. The VA used this on me last week, 30 minutes a day for three days. I slept 6 hours two nights and almost 7 the third night. More sleep, better the mood, much less anxiety.” – Paul Reinhardt, US veteran

How it works

Pain, mood conditions (like anxiety and depression), and insomnia are all controlled by your body’s central nervous system. The billions of individual cells that comprise the nervous system communicate every sensation by conducting electrochemical signals between the cells in your body and brain.

Your moods and emotions, including anxiety, insomnia and depression, are controlled through electrochemical signals in your brain. When these signals aren’t functioning properly, the hormones and neurotransmitters that regulate your emotions can become unbalanced.

By modulating the body and brain’s electrochemical signals, you can safely and effectively relieve pain, improve mood conditions such as anxiety and depression, and experience better sleep.

Most people experience significant relief after a single treatment. The body accommodates to pharmaceutical drugs over time. This can never happen with Alpha-Stim! Alpha-Stim’s effect is cumulative, meaning each treatment is potentially more and more effective—and you can decrease use after time.

Dental Anxiety Significantly Reduced with Breakthrough Microcurrent Treatment

It’s quite usual for many of us to become anxious or even develop a phobia about going to the dentist, and for some this can become very extreme. Almost half of adults in the UK have a fear of the dentist and 12% will suffer from an extreme dental anxiety.

However, a new form of technology is helping to combat this; a recent study on a portable cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES) device called the Alpha-Stim demonstrated how it can significantly reduce dental anxiety. And it’s now starting to catch on with dentists across the UK and Ireland.
