People spend time and money to correct teeth damage by having fillings, braces, root canals, crowns (caps), bridges and implants, extractions and teeth whitening. These procedures are very common and not many people question them. However, there are many common illnesses which were discovered to be associated with these dental procedures.
In last July’s newsletter I talked about amalgam fillings that can cause many diseases such as ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), Rheumatoid Arthritis, Thyroid Disease, Fibromyalgia, Multiple sclerosis, Alzheimer, Parkinson Disease. However, I also found out through the “Holistic Oral Health Summit” that any metal fillings (amalgam and/or gold) in the mouth generate unnaturally high electric current. You can even measure oral electrical currents with medical equipment sensitive enough to measure very low voltage.
According to one of the speakers from the summit, the body’s normal electrical (bioenergetic) reading is around 450 millivolts. However when saliva mixes with amalgam (or metal) fillings, a measurable electric current of up to 1,000 millivolts can be detected. This kind of highly charged electrical current is suspected of overpowering the body’s normal electrical flows and potentially interfering with energy flow to the brain. It is also suspected of causing various irritations to the nervous system. So, you can imagine if your brain is stimulated with unnatural electric current, having headaches, chronic fatigue, memory loss, sleep deprivation, and irritability makes sense to you, isn’t it?
Another dreadful discovery from the summit is about the wisdom teeth extraction procedure. Have you ever heard of Cavitation? If the bone does not heal correctly after the extraction, it creates holes in the jawbone that then harbor bacteria and other debris. These holes are called Cavitations, NICOS (Neuralgia-Inducing Cavitational Osteonecrosis), or the more technical term: Osteonecrosis of the bone. They can be a source of bacteria that then infects other parts of your body. Osteonecrosis means bone death and happens when there is a lack of blood supply to an area of the bone.
Research indicates that 45% of all jawbone cavitations are located in the third molar area where wisdom teeth have been previously extracted. One of the speakers, a holistic dentist, Blanche D. Grube DDS said that the caviation on the wisdom teeth are caused by using epinephrine as a local anesthesia. This information is confirmed in a book called “Toxic Teeth” by Y.L. Wright, M.A. , J.M. Swartz, M. D. The book says, “A cavitation may also result when a dentist uses a local anesthetic with epinephrine. The best option is to skip the epinephrine when you get a tooth extracted. You want to get a good blood flow and a good clot to form in the extraction site. The epinephrine causes constriction of the blood vessels. Your heart beats faster. You don’t get much bleeding. This is good for the dentist because the patient stays numb for one or two hours and bleeding is slowed. But you don’t get a good clot to form. As the small capillaries close, red blood cells cannot be delivered to the area. The bone cells are deprived of oxygen. When bone cells are deprived of oxygen for as little as 34 seconds, they will die. The bone cannot heal because it is dead. If you had four wisdom teeth taken out with epinephrine, it is a given that you now have four cavitations in the bone where the wisdom teeth roots used to be.”
Having a hole in the jawbone is quite scary to think about it, but the worst part is that cavitation introduces powerful anaerobic bacteria into the bone, causing a silent infection in your jawbone. This infection can then follow meridian pathways in the body leading to serious disease states. Many articles document that heart disease, kidney disease, rheumatoid arthritis, neurological diseases (including ALS and MS), and other autoimmune diseases (Lupus and more), are very similar to root canal infections.
So if you suffer any type of chronic disease and none of your conventional doctors are able to figure out what is going on in your body, I always suggest that you should see a functional medicine, naturopath, or osteopathic doctor. However, because I was very fascinated with oral health and the physical health connection by Holistic Oral Health Summit, I also suggest that you go to see a holistic/biological dentist who can review your physical complains and connect missing dots. There is a meridian tooth chart that shows the connection between each tooth and various organs, tissues, and glands in the body. If a person has a weak internal organ, the condition of the associated meridian tooth could make it considerably more problematic. The chart is pretty interesting. You may be able to find a connection!
