Overcome dental fears with acupuncture

Calm nerves, relieve pain and reduce a racing heart before your next visit to the dentist with acupuncture; the new, revolutionary approach to support holistic dentistry at the Covent Garden Dental Spa.

Receiving acupuncture prior to dental treatments is the latest combined offering to be introduced by the practice pioneering in advances in dentistry to help overcome dental fears; another route to effectively help with sweaty palms, an alarming pulse, or high levels of anxiety when sitting in the dentist's chair.

Recent studies in Sheffield and Denmark concluded that acupuncture, the complementary therapy in which fine needles are inserted into specific points on the body, before dental treatments has a ‘beneficial effect on the level of unease in patients with dental anxiety'. The study found that just five minutes of acupuncture in the top of the head can cut anxiety levels by more than half.*
 
Upon arrival at the Covent Garden Dental Spa, patients are asked to fill in a form about daily aspects of their life and well-being, followed by a personal consultation with professionally qualified in-house acupuncturist, Jake Gold, in a comforting massage chair in the relax and massage room. This helps to determine where the needles will be strategically administered for optimal results.

Jake Gold, a member of the British Acupuncture Council, says: 'Acupuncture rebalances the body to positively affect health. The effects can be subtle, giving you a calm relaxed feeling, as it is a natural sedative, while at the same time being able to help with real physical issues. It is virtually safe and can be done on a regular basis.'

The Covent Garden Dental Spa has tried and tested acupuncture on a selection of patients before performing dental treatments, with positive responses including feeling more relaxed and calm, helping overcome fears and anxiety and finding it an enjoyable experience.

‘I have met patients with dental anxieties, some I would call "dental phobes" and after acupuncture sessions and treatments in my dental chair, they now walk in and out of here with smiles of glee,' says Dr Flora Chigwedere, founder and principal dentist at Covent Garden Dental Spa.

Acupuncture sessions last approximately 30 minutes and are priced from £80.

Notes To Editors

* Based on a study on 20 patients, all of whom feared the dentist and had not visited between 2 and 30 years due to fear, as reported in the journal Acupuncture in Medicine. On previous dental visits, three patients had needed general anaesthetic to cope with their fears, while six others had required sedatives.
