Chronic dental pain can agony, and many people are willing to try anything to find relief. One alternative option that many people will explore is magnet therapy. Under this practice, powerful magnets are worn in key places to dull pain and promote healing. But is the science sound, or is it just another dose of snake oil?
The unfortunate truth is that it is difficult to say just how much magnets have to offer. It isn’t entirely absurd to think that magnets may be able to affect your health, as magnetic fields run through the body. However, some of the claims made by magnet therapists don’t hold up to scrutiny. It is claimed by some that the magnets act upon the iron in your blood, but this iron is not in a state where it will react to magnetism.
