Thoughts on acupuncture

I’m a big fan of Chinese Medicine! It’s funny how in our Western civilization we call acupuncture alternative. Well, over a billion people have been practicing this art for over five thousand years, so I wouldn’t call it alternative!

Being a Western physician myself and having studied Medicine, Anatomy and all those scientific subjects, I can say that we dentists are not really prepared to understand acupuncture. But the truth is that it actually works.

It is incredible how a few well-positioned needles can relieve tension and pain, bringing a lot of comfort to people in such a simple and cost-effective way. Just for the record, I’m a big fan of the so called “alternative” medicines and I think anybody in need of help, especially in cases in which traditional Western Medicine or surgeries are out of the question, should definitely try it.

It can be life-changing and it’s super-easy! I think nobody should really be scared of this. Of course, it helps to have a very good practitioner. Mine is Chinese and she has been doing this for twenty years! I can assure you: it does make a difference!

As in everything in life, experience and excellence make a difference in the medical field. It doesn’t matter if it is Western or Chinese Medicine.

When I first heard about clear aligners in the early 2000s (the US Food and Drug Administration approved the use of clear aligners to straighten teeth in 1980), it must have sounded like science fiction. The fact that it was created in Silicon Valley by people who had nothing to do with the dental industry, in seeking solutions that do not require complicated appliances in the mouth, is really an incredible story.
