Acupuntura na Medicina Dentária

É possível tratar a dor da articulação da boca com acupuntura?

Quando o doente apresenta dores na articulação da boca que até podem limitar a abertura da boca, dores nos músculos da face, dores de cabeça localizadas às têmporas ou mesmo “estalidos” na articulação poderemos estar perante uma disfunção temporomandibular.

A Disfunção Temporomandibular (DTM) é o termo médico usado para classificar vários tipos de doenças músculo-esqueléticas e neuromusculares que envolvem a articulação “da boca” (Temporomandibular), os músculos da mastigação e diferentes tecidos associados, com um quadro clínico muito variável de acordo com a zona acometida de patologia.

Tendo a sua origem diferentes factores, também o seu tratamento pode ser feito por diferentes terapêuticas – tais como medicamentos, as goteiras oclusais ou “placas rígidas”, a fisioterapia e a punção seca e acupunctura.

Sabendo-se hoje que a grande maioria das disfunções são de origem muscular e muito influenciadas pelo stress e fatores de ansiedade, a punção seca e a acupuntura têm ganho relevo como método de tratamento. Isto deve-se ao facto de terem cada vez mais evidência científica nesta área particular, pelo sua fácil aplicação e aceitação e pelo seu baixo risco de efeitos secundários, quando comparado com medicamentos ou tratamentos dentários irreversíveis, sendo hoje aceite como método complementar de tratamento pelos médicos dentistas com formação diferenciada.
