Today homeopathy is an often used system of medicine which is not only safe, but also has no harmful side-effects. It involves remedies chosen on a highly individual basis. In the dental field it offers surprisingly effective therapies for toothaches, gum disease, abscesses, ulcers, children’s teething problems, dental fear and anxiety, etc. Since homeopathy acts on an energy level, it acts extremely well on children especially, because of their high energy, vitality and purity.
Herbal remedies can be used as teas which stimulate the body’s immune system and its detoxification mechanisms, and also as natural constituents in mouthwashes and toothpastes. Some herbs are not suitable for children, pregnant women, for those on anti-depressive or other drugs, or with liver damage. Please consult your physician before using herbs internally.
Aromatherapy, hypnosis, acupuncture, bioresonance, low level laser, biomeridian and bioenergetic therapy, applied kinesiology, osteopathic therapy and nutritional therapy can all have applications in dentistry. A biological dentist uses a multidisciplinary approach in utilizing these services, or referring a patient to specialists in complementary therapies, thus benefiting the patient as a whole.
