P208 Dental Acupuncture

Speaker:Dr David Johnson

  • About This Course

Presented by Dr David Johnson, acupuncture is a technique whereby diseases can be either cured or alleviated - or put in other words- an extra tool in a dentist's toolbox. It has been known in China for the last 3-4000 years and the technique has been able to demonstrate results that even today are surprising. In dentistry, it is used to treat conditions from TMJ pain to trigeminal neuralgia and prominent gag reflex.
