Chapman and Prs. John Gehrig, professor of oral surgery in the dentistry school, and Michael Wilson of the anesthesiology department, simulated dental pain by applying several intensities of electrical shock to the teeth of experiment volunteers. Received Neither Some of the volunteers received acupuncture stimulation in the fleshy part of the hand between the thumb and forefinger. Others were administered nitrous oxide. A third group. used as experiment controls, received neither. Chapman said that compared with the control group, both the nitrous oxide and acupuncture groups showed a significant, though small, decrease in sensitivity to pain. “The real payoff from the use of acupuncture in dentistry will be what we will learn about the nature of dental pain,” said Chapman. Chapman recently returned from the People’s Republic of China, where he accompanied ll other pain researchers and physicians on a three-week tour of medical facilities in Peking, Canton and Shanghai. The group witnessed 48 operations with the use of acupuncture, including oral surgery One oral surgeon told Chapman that although he uses a local anesthetic for most of his cases to save time, he prefers acupuncture and has actually used acupuncture anesthesia for approximately 2.00ft cases.
