Dental Acupuncture Near Briarcliff Manor, NY
Traditional Techniques Used for Pain & Anxiety Relief
Acupuncture is a technique used to relieve various health conditions including pain and anxiety. It works with your body’s own pain control mechanisms, stimulating the release of endorphins that block pain signals in the brain. At The Center For Holistic Dentistry, we have many patients who prefer acupuncture treatment over a local anesthetic. Other patients are more comfortable with a local anesthetic and acupuncture used as an adjunct. For some, we will use acupuncture in combination with nitrous oxide and/or oral sedation. As a holistic dental practice, we also use acupuncture near Briarcliff Manor, NY, in other ways.
Your Mouth & its Relationship With Your Whole Body
Your overall health is directly influenced by the conditions in your mouth. Any disruptions to the flow of energy through your mouth can also have an effect on remote regions of your body in the same way that disruptions in your body may manifest in your mouth. These relationships are a result of communication between the Acupuncture Meridians and your teeth. We will treat your mouth considering the dental acupuncture relationships with your whole body.
As an experienced holistic dentist and dental acupuncturist, Dr. Lerner screens all our patients for sensitivity to materials in their teeth as well as for potential sensitivity to materials that are used for treatment. He uses Applied Kinesiology on acupuncture points to determine if your body might respond adversely to the material.
When appropriate, we can also order blood tests such as a BioComp Screening for sensitivity to dental materials. This is similar to the Clifford Test, which is unavailable in the state of New York.
