Poor oral health is a global pandemic. There are many often-overlooked health problems that develop as a consequence of common dental procedures like root canal treatments, dental implants, nickel braces, or even extraction of wisdom teeth.
In the 1930s Dr. Weston Price was one of the first researchers to understand the link between root canals and illness. He discovered it’s mechanically impossible to sterilize a root canaled tooth. Many chronic degenerative diseases have been linked with root canals, including heart and kidney disease, arthritis, joint and rheumatic disease, gastrointestinal disorders and autoimmune diseases like lupus and even cancer.
Each of the teeth is a living organ. When a dentist performs a root canal, the tooth is filled with gutta-percha, which cuts off the tooth from its blood supply and fluid no longer circulates through it. Leaving in a dead tooth as a silent incubator for highly toxic anaerobic bacteria cannot be good for the body. It is common for such an infection to extend down. If your immune system is compromised due to an illness, trauma or high levels of chronic stress, it may be unable to control such an infection. The toxins may enter the general circulation and migrate to an organ, gland or other tissue.
Many studies on the materials used in dentistry are not looking at the long-term exposure risks to the patient or the potential toxicity when these materials breakdown over time. Moreover, functionality of the restorations is often the dentist’s only consideration.
It’s important for the dentist to examine the biocompatibility of each material used in all dental procedures.
And if you’re concerned about the role that root canal teeth may be having on your health, start by consulting a qualified biological dentist at our center. Biological dentistry is concerned with the whole body.
