Dental Acupuncture in Westchester County, NY

Materials Sensitivity Testing and Effective Pain Relief

Acupuncture has been used for thousands of years to relieve pain and anxiety. It works with the body’s own pain control mechanisms, stimulating the release of endorphins which block the pain signals in the brain. It is so effective that we have some patients for whom acupuncture treatment is preferred instead of a local anesthetic. Many patients are comfortable with a local anesthetic and acupuncture used as an adjunct. For some, we will also use acupuncture in combination with nitrous oxide and/or oral sedation. As a holistic dental practice, we employ acupuncture in Westchester County, NY, in other ways as well.

The Relationship Between The Mouth & The Whole Body

Conditions in the mouth have a profound potential to reflect and influence the health of the whole person. Disruptions to the flow of energy through the mouth may affect remote regions of the body. What’s more, disruptions elsewhere may manifest in the mouth. These relationships are a result of communication between the Acupuncture Meridians and the teeth. We will treat your mouth considering the dental acupuncture relationships with your whole body for optimal health.

As a dental acupuncturist and holistic dentist, Dr. Lerner screens patients for sensitivity to materials in their teeth. Additionally, we also screen for potential sensitivity to materials we are considering using in their treatment. The simplest test is to screen with Applied Kinesiology on acupuncture points to determine if the 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 NY state.

This is a comprehensive chart based on the original work of Rheinhold Voll, M.D., which illustrates the relationship between the teeth and the rest of the body. It is an essential reference for understanding the influence of diseased teeth and chronic health conditions.

"I can’t thank Dr. Lerner and his staff enough, notably his assistant Nicole for expertly handling my mercury filling removals.I had it done in 2 phases and they took very good care of me on both occasions. The whole office is very pleasant, so professional and I look forward to my visits. On this most recent cleaning appointment, Linda did my cleaning. She was gentle and thorough. Highly recommend."

"Excellent experience during my initial consultation. The most complete examination I have ever had by a dentist, including full body muscle testing. This testing uncovered major alignment issues with my jaw which has been causing a lifetime of misalignment throughout the rest of my body. Dr. Lerner and his staff are outside the box thinkers and I am very happy I have found them."
