The efficacy of homoeopathic similimum compared to a homoeopathic complex in the treatment of problematic primary dental eruption
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the relative effectiveness of Homoeopathic Similimum against a Homoeopathic Complex (Chamomilla 30CH Belladonna 30CH and Scutellaria lateriflora 06) in the treatment of problematic primary dental eruption, thereby expanding on previous nornoeopathic research. This study was a double blind randomised clinical investigation, which compared a Homoeopathic Teething Complex with Homoeopathic Similimum treatment. Thirty infants were selected for this study if they were between the ages of four months and three years and experiencing problematic teething. The criteria for the study required that the infants involved exhibited the following signs and symptoms of teething: irritability, waking at night, biting and chewing objects, decreased appetite, increased thirst, diarrhoea without dehydration, hypersalivation, flushed cheeks or circumoral rash and swollen red gums.
