Developed by Dr. Elmajian in the early 1990’s, I.O.N.T. is a neural therapy technique having many applications in the field of Dental Medicine. Dental Medicine is one of the major disciplines dealing with chronic illness and pain. The dental component in chronic pain management can play an important role in removing burden placed on the autonomic nervous system and therefore impacts the overall health of the body.
I.O.N.T. is a procedure performed in the mouth to detect and correct disturbances in the jawbone, such as infections due to root canals, cavitations or hyperemic/sensitive teeth. It produces local effects by relieving pain and treating infection in the mouth. It also has far reaching effects by stopping the spread of infection from the mouth or jawbone to other parts of the body.
This is accomplished by delivering deep anesthesia as well as homeopathic remedies to infected teeth and infected jawbone areas. In some cases only one treatment is required. Other situations may require a short series of I.O.N.T. treatments to fully address the issue.
I.O.N.T. can also be used in conjunction with organ/dental points to determine if there is a dental disturbance field in relation to and affecting a specific organ.
As the different teeth in our mouths correspond to specific organ systems in our bodies, I.O.N.T. is a valuable tool in determining if a tooth could be related to a potential health issue.
