Homeopathy in Dentistry

Homeopathy in dentistry – the gentle healing

Homeopathy is a branch of medicine. Its roots date back to Hippocrates. Dr. Samuel Hahnemann, a physician-pharmacist who lived 200 years ago systematized it. The principle of homeopathy is that “like cures like”. Homeopathy does not suppress the body’s immune response, but stimulates the body’s self-healing ability. Homeopathic medicines have no side effects. Although dental care cannot be replaced by homeopathic treatment, the intervention and the organism can be assisted using homeopathic methods.

The rules for using homeopathic remedies

AHomeopathic drugs are placed on the market mostly in the forms of pellets or tablets. They are to be placed and sucked under the tongue. The drug gets absorbed through the mucosal, thus within half an hour before and after taking the drug eating, drinking, tooth brushing and smoking is not advisable. Use of menthol, camphor and other aromatic substances, use of essential oils (even externally) should be avoided as they can counteract the effect of the drug. For babies, the drug should be dissolved in water and they can take it with the help of a plastic spoon. One dose consists of 5 balls or a tablet. The drugs should be kept away from electrical radiation devices (mobile phones, microwave, radio, etc) and they should be stored at room temperature in a dry place.
