LA dentists ‘combining eastern and western medicine’
Dentists in Los Angeles are combining eastern and western medicines to supply their patients with winning smiles, it has been revealed.
Shahab Akhavan, an LA dentist, noted one of the best things about the combination of these two cultures is the fact that modern western equipment can be used in conjuncture with eastern traditional medicines to reduce pain and help people feel at ease over a procedure.
"The interests many patients have in natural methods were clearly understood by LA dentists … [they] combine breakthrough science with technological advancements, proper nutrition, vitamin complementation, exercise, co-enzymes and relaxation," Dr Akhavan commented.
Professor TP Chaturvedi, senior doctor of the Faculty of Dental Sciences at Banaras Hindu University, recently noted 30 per cent of all trips to the emergency dentist could be avoided if patients went for regular check-ups.
