Homeopathy is where a Homeopathic Doctor uses tiny amounts of natural substances to stimulate the healing process. These can be substances such as plants and minerals. The ideology behind homeopathy is "like cures like". So, small amounts of what causes a reaction may be given to a client to stimulate the patients natural defense system and desensitize them.
In dentistry we use homeopathic remedies as an alternative to antibiotics, pain killers, nitrous gas. A few examples are:
Hepar Sulphuris - Use for abscess accompanied by pus formation.
Pulsatilla - Use for dental anxiety
Arsenicum album - Use for unhealthy, bleeding gums.
Silicea - Periodontal abscess with swollen glands.
Apis mellifica - Good for post-injection soreness after dental work.
Phytolacca decanda - Use for earaches with pain extending into teeth, jaw, and throat.
Calcarea carbonica - Use for a toothache that worsens when exposed to hot or cold air.
