Acupuncture is a great addition to our other dental treatments, as it can help make sure you are relaxed and comfortable during your time with us. The treatment works by inserting fine needles into specific points of the body that are considered the lines of energy (meridians) according to traditional Chinese medicine. The number of needles and where they are placed in the body will depend on the condition being treated, and we will discuss the procedure during your initial consultation.

These services work for many people and can allow patients to have a range of dental treatments they may have been unable to receive before. Whether you are interested in pain relief or want to calm your anxiety, contact us today to see how our professional treatments can help you.
With an acupuncture treatment, as the needles are so fine, most people do not feel them. However, it is normal to feel a mild tingle or dull ache. We will ensure you are comfortable throughout the treatment, and if you do experience any significant pain, please inform your practitioner straight away.
In some cases, people may experience mild side effects, such as feeling dizzy or faint. You may also notice light bruising where the needle has punctured the skin.
An initial consultation will be required to discuss the issues you are having and whether acupuncture will be suitable. If you are pregnant or have a bleeding disorder such as haemophilia or a metal allergy, we advise speaking to your GP before having the treatment.
