Toothaches and Acupuncture
Acupuncture is an effective therapy for all types of pain, including the pain associated with toothaches. The treatment of acupuncture for toothaches involves detoxifying the meridians (removing the heat that is leading to pain and inflammation). The process also unblocks the flow of Qi and promotes better circulation and therefore healing in the affected area of the mouth.
Because toothaches are often indicative of poor health in other areas of the body, acupuncture is particularly helpful because it seeks to rebalance and harmonize the health of the entire body. Acupuncture also boosts the body’s immunity to prevent infection in the entire body.
Following a tooth extraction or other oral surgery, acupuncture can be a very helpful tool for those looking for natural, drug free methods of alleviating pain. Acupuncture helps with the release of endorphin compounds in the nervous system. These endorphins have opiate-like qualities and can work as natural painkillers to relieve toothache pain.
