Needles Cure Phobia of Needles
A new study reveals that acupuncture of all things may be an effective treatment for dental anxiety. Researchers from Sweden Denmark and the UK did a study of 20 people with dental anxiety, all in their 40s. The participants have been battling dental anxiety anywhere from 2 to 30 years. They measured the patients’ anxiety level before and after a 5 minute acupuncture sessions and found that after the acupuncture the anxiety had lessened. All participants were able to receive dental treatment. A huge improvement from only 6 that were able to undergo the dental treatment before the study. More research is needed to confirm these promising results.
