 Integrative Dentistry: Homeopathy in Dentistry 

It is advisable to take homeopathic treatments fifteen minutes before or after eating. Strong flavors such as mint and camphor, odors from perfumes and paints, and caffeine may decrease the effectiveness of the remedies.

Homeopathy requires personal observation to determine the length of treatment needed with each remedy. If no change occurs in a chronic ailment after a week, switch to another remedy. If improvement is noted, continue with the remedy until all symptoms have disappeared. If a new set of symptoms appears, start a different remedy.
