Acupuncture helps to recover from dental surgery

Surgical removal of the impacted or semi-impacted third molars is a routine procedure performed by oral and maxillofacial surgeons. The edema and limitation of mouth opening can be triggered by the inflammatory process initiated by surgical trauma. Usually its presence contributes to the increase of pain because there is an increase of tissue tension. Acupuncture therapy helps the maintenance of immune function and restores homeostasis, promotes muscle relaxation, therefore it is selected as an adjunctive treatment for this surgery in a research. The aim is that acupuncture treatment can minimize the symptoms of these occurrences. The result has shown that acupuncture was effective in reducing postoperative residual edema and intraoperative bleeding.
