Any dental clinic can provide an experience in sensitive nerve
paralysis followed by tooth extraction, however an example of every curing case will
seldom to appear among the patients admitted to its services. Though a meticulous
correction of all dental and medical complications will do much to aid the patient, much
of the emotional unrest for the dentists while curing paralyzed area is due to unsure
feeling produced by their disorientation on a medical suit, misidentifications and
misinterpretations may lead to catastrophic results.
Dr. Schwartz has already revealed in 1973 that 66% among 1291
patients experienced sensitive nerve paralysis after tooth extraction. Of the patients
with paralyzed areas, 418 cases were unreversible and 58 cases instituted to the medical
suit against dentists, he reported. Hence, this repoet deseribed one of six caces of
successful acupuncture treatment for the sensitive nerve paralysis appealing numbness,
abnormal gestation, ptyalism, occlusal and burned trauma.
Manipulations:The meridians selected for the acupuncture
treatment were as follows : (names in Japanese) for the facial meridan points and (names
in Japanese) for the oral meridan points, primarily an interval of 30 min daily
acupuncture treatment were repeated 7 to 10 times, and the treatment intervals were
prolonged to the weekly according to the results of efficacies. When the signs of recovery
was unclear, additional meridans were selected for the treatment. In case of glossal
nervous paralysis remained, the treatment by oral meridian points and soft laser
irradiation were appliced.
Prognosis:The curing processes of the paralysis were observed
in order of the following steps:
2. Recovery begun,
3. Numbness remained,
4. Sensory impulse registering,
5. Slight recovery in angulue oris,
6. Labial paralysis concluded,
7. Trival paralysis remains in mentum,
8. Paralysis disappeared, and
9. Complete recovery.
Results and discussion: Most patients face sensitive nerve
paralysis with courage, hope, a willingness to place their trust in others, and a capacity
to endure. They do this quietly, not seeking paraise but simply because this is the way
they made. an acupuncture treatment has proposed that therapy done not for the immediate
good of the patient but for the general welfare of mankind should be carried out by those
who do not simultaneously have responsibility for the clinical care of the subject.
