The frequent involvement of vital teeth in focal disturbances

American Journal of Acupuncture 8(1): 25-30

The frequent involvement of vital teeth in focal disturbances

It is extremely difficult to ascertain changes in the dentin and pulp when severe morphological signs are not yet present by X-rays and accepted clinical examintion methods. An histological examination always requires an extraction. Bacterial presence in the dentin shows the close relationship of the teeth with the entire organism. Although conventional methods give no picture of the energetic situation, its presence cannot be denied. Since energetic processes precede the detectable morphological changes, an EAV test (Electroacupuncture According to Voll), can be of great assitance, revealing within minutes whether focal disturbances are the reason for the patient's resistance to therapy. This EAV test can give us a clear picture of the situation in the pulp and dentin.
