Dental Acupuncture Near Briarcliff Manor, NY
Holistic Therapy for Pain Relief
Acupuncture is an age-old holistic therapy that promotes pain relief. It works with your body’s pain control mechanisms and stimulates the release of endorphins that block pain signals in the brain. At The Center For Holistic Dentistry, some of our patients prefer acupuncture treatment over local anesthetic, while others choose a local anesthetic and acupuncture used as an adjunct. In other cases, we use acupuncture in combination with nitrous oxide and/or oral sedation. As a holistic dental practice, we also employ acupuncture near Briarcliff Manor, NY, in other ways.
How Your Mouth & Whole Body Are Connected
Your whole body is affected by the conditions and flow of energy in your mouth. And vice versa, the conditions of your whole body can affect the conditions 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 for optimal health.
As an experienced dental acupuncturist and holistic dentist, Dr. Lerner will screen you for materials sensitivity. Additionally, he will screen for potential sensitivity to materials we are considering using in your treatment. The simplest test is to screen with Applied Kinesiology on acupuncture points to determine if your body might respond adversely to the material.
When necessary, 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 New York state.
