This purpose of this article is to contrast the analgesic efficacy of acupuncture following dental surgery with the analgesic effects based on the expectation of benefit in two independently conducted placebo-controlled trials evaluating acupuncture as an adjunctive therapy for dental surgery. Both trials used pain following dental surgery as the outcome variable, and both included a blinding check to ascertain patients' beliefs regarding which treatment they were receiving.

The basic mechanism of dental amalgam corrosion has been thoroughly studied during the last 50 years by various experimental techniques, most often carried out in vitro. Electrochemical methods were extensively employed, and it was recognized that a gradual dealloying of the more electroactive components, Zn, Sn, and to a lesser extent Cu, contributed to change the surface composition. It is also well known that, in all circumstances, galvanic coupling threatens the longevity of the restoration.

In August, 1995 dental treatment was provided in an orphanage in Romania. This treatment took place over three weeks using three different dentists. Two dental nurses served for full the duration. For the last two weeks the team was joined by a dental health educator. All have given accounts of their time in Romania. The patients had various degrees of handicap but generally co-operation for treatment was poor. Most patients needed pre-operative sedation of oral valium. A papoose board was used for restraint.
