Role of homeopathy in Post-Surgical Dental Implants Paresthesia – A case report
Paresthesia is the partial loss of sensation and paralysis is the total loss of sensation and movement. They generally originate from injuries in the trigeminal terminal branches. This article discusses the implants complications, but it is important to note that other surgical procedures can cause the same damage and the source of the injury changes the indication of the drug to be prescribed. The objective is to report to implantodontists knowledge of Hypericum and Causticum, from the homeopathic therapy, and effective help in the resolution of post-surgical dental implant. According to the results observed in the present case, the authors conclude that the use of Homeopathy as a complementary therapy is effective in treating postoperative paresthesia. However, controlled trials are needed to assess the real benefit of homeopathy as an adjunct in the treatment of post-surgical paresthesia.
