'Complementary Therapies in Dental Practice' looks at the various types of complementary therapies that can be used in dentistry, outlining the ways in which these therapies can be used in everyday dental practice or, if more appropriate, in which direction a dental practitioner can refer a patient. As time goes on, more and more dental practitioners are referring patients to specialists in alternative therapies. The aim of this book is to make more people aware that alternative therapies have a place in the practice of dentistry.

Public interest in the use of complementary medicine continues to grow and patients are increasingly demanding a higher level of awareness of the holistic aspects of health care. In common with other health care professionals, dental practitioners are now referring patients to specialist alternative therapists to complement the more orthodox treatments they administer. Proven benefits have been found in the treatment of many conditions, for example, temporomandibular joint dysfunction and associated headaches (Cranial Osteopathy/Chiropractic) and pain (Acupuncture).About the Author:
