Some people are hesitant to try acupuncture. The thought of pins placed on the skin sounds uncomfortable to those who are unfamiliar with this technique. However, there is research supporting its use in changing the perception of pain and releasing those natural pain killers.

It is possible that acupuncture prior to dental treatment may decrease feelings of anxiety. There is more research needed to determine the extent of the benefits. However, if you feel anxious at the thought of visiting your dentist and are open to trying acupuncture, it may be worth exploring.
