THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A GOOD ROOT CANAL.
Root Canals: Why would anyone want a dead tooth in their mouth â€¦ for life?
* * * There Is ONLY One Healthy Alternative to Root Canals
The Health Coach
Of all the dental procedures and dental materials utilized throughout the field of dentistry there is none more destructive to human health than root canals.
â€œItâ€™s like putting a bullet in your mouth, and then just waiting for the day it might kill you.â€ â€” An Oral Health Consultant after years of observing the ravages of root canal â€˜treatmentâ€™
Letâ€™s first draw the picture â€“ in living color â€“ for you to look at closely before you choose to do a root canal(s) in your mouth.
This routine procedure involves the following technique every time the endodontist or general dentist gets busy in your mouth making canals in your teeth, some of which may be stubs at that point.
First the dentist removes all the dental pulp from the tooth. â€œThe dental pulp is the part in the center of a tooth made up of living connective tissue and cells called odontoblasts.â€œ This vital pulp, which is necessary for a living tooth to remain living, is full of blood vessels and nerve tissue. When this blood supply and network of nerves is extracted, the tooth is essentially devitalized, aka killed. The tooth is then completely unable to perform all the normal activities which are required for optimal tooth health.
Why would anyone, ever, want a dead tooth in their mouth â€¦ for the rest of their life?!
Why Would I Want A Dead Tooth In My Mouth For Life?
So, the first question any rational person would ask themselves is: â€œWhy would I want a dead tooth in my mouth â€¦ for the rest of my life?â€
Answer: You donâ€™t want a dead tooth in your mouth for the rest of your life.
Please show us â€” The Health Coach â€” another instance in your body where a dead organ, tissue, limb, digit, etc. is purposefully kept in or attached to your body by the Medical Practitioner. Show us just one example â€¦ please!
Our experience has been that whenever an organ dies, the doctor removes it pronto. Whenever a limb becomes gangrenous, the surgeon amputates post-haste. If your eye were to â€œdieâ€ due to some traumatic injury which then became irreparably infected, the ophthalmologist would completely remove the eye leaving an empty socket cleaned out of all infected tissue, yes?
Why then does an endodontist go out of his way to keep your white shiny tooth in place even though he has just killed it?! The only reason he/she is able to get away with this extremely dangerous procedure is because of our ignorance of the associated health risks and long-term medical repercussions. This is often coupled with vanity, together with his/her â€˜compellingâ€™ sales pitch as to why you donâ€™t want to lose the tooth â€¦ ever, no matter what the consequences may be (thatâ€™s another long story for another dental coaching session).
The Raw Truth About A Root-Canaled Tooth
Letâ€™s revisit the dead tooth that sits in your mouth after the root canal is completed. Because it still appears white does that mean it is okay. If it turned black and oozed pus, what would you do with it? Wouldnâ€™t you take it out? Well, hereâ€™s whatâ€™s REALLY going on with that tooth.
The human body was designed to rid itself of all dead and infected cells, tissues, organs, etc. Teeth are no different and itâ€™s why we see so many toothless people around the world where there is not adequate preventive dental care and maintenance-oriented oral health. The body gets rid of the tooth thatâ€™s â€œgone badâ€â€¦ one way or another.
You see, the tooth dentin* is full of thousands of microscopic dentin tubules which are critical to maintaining healthy teeth. Once the root canal is performed these tubules become home to all sorts of pathogenic bacteria and accumulated toxins which can no longer be removed because the toothâ€™s vascular system has been removed (and the toothâ€™s natural self-healing system has been totally incapacitated). All the normal activities that are carried out within this matrix, â€œwhich radiate outward through the dentin from the pulp to the exterior cementum or enamel borderâ€œ, cease to take place. Itâ€™s important to understand that â€œthese tubules contain fluid and cellular structures. As a result, dentin has a degree of permeability which can increase the sensation of pain and the rate of tooth decay.â€œ
*â€œDentin is bone-like matrix characterized by multiple closely packed dentinal tubules that traverse its entire thickness and contain the cytoplasmic extensions of odontoblasts that once formed the dentine and maintain it.â€
Thatâ€™s enough anatomy for the time being; the upshot is that your dead, root-canaled tooth has now become a haven for all sorts of nasty pathogenic microorganisms which sit there for the lifetime of the body doing more damage than youâ€™ll ever know. Much of the havoc actually starts around the roots of the root-canaled tooth. This is where the body sets up it first line of defense against a tooth that has died and is on the way to becoming necrotic.
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A GOOD ROOT CANAL.
What are Focal Infections?
They are called focal infections because they are localized in an infected tooth socket â€œwhich then spread to some other organ or structure of the bodyâ€. They are especially found around the tooth roots, especially the tips of every root-canaled tooth. These infections are almost always subclinical in nature, which means the dentist or doctor doesnâ€™t pick up any symptoms upon physical examination. Those who observe their bodies closely and are intuitive rarely miss the telltale signs that something has gone awry in their mouth.
Incidentally, many abscesses in the mouth are directly the result of infections that occur around the roots of root-canaled teeth. These often start out as a very small swelling, but they can easily evolve into painful inflammations requiring the use of antibiotics and the immediate extraction of the tooth. The swelling, pain and inflammation are simply the bodyâ€™s response to the dead tooth. The older the root canal, the greater the likelihood that a full-blown infection will require urgent, if not emergent, care.
This unfortunate state of affairs is not the most serious aspect of root canals, however. The real caveat surrounding this extraordinarily harmful procedure are the FOCAL INFECTIONS which inevitably result in teeth which exhibit no symptoms, have no pain, and seem perfectly â€˜healthyâ€™.
Just what is a focal infection? Here you go from The Free Dictionary (by Farlex):
focal infection n. A bacterial infection localized in a specific part of the body, such as the tonsils, that may spread to another part of the body. n. the site or origin of an infectious process. Endodontically treated teeth have frequently been accused of being the source of septicemiasâ€¦.
This is where root canals really rear their ugly heads. However, it takes a very perceptive individual to recognize that ugly head for what it is before it takes an awesome toll on their health, even to the point of death.
What we have seen with root canals with over 25 years of close observation is that each individual possesses his/her own signature points, weaknesses if you will, which are targeted by these focal infections. In one person it may be their heart, another their thyroid, yet another it may be their brain or kidneys which are targeted. No matter what the target organ(s) and/or tissues(s), the particular organ or tissue or body location becomes the recipient (focus) of the infection that began in the mouth (most often a root-canaled tooth).
What ultimately can occur if this condition is allowed to proceed undiagnosed or unattended ranges anywhere from a heart attack or worse, cardiac arrest, to a brain attack or stroke. When the cerebrovascular accident is less severe it may only take the form of a TIA (transient ischemic attack) or mini-stroke. Nevertheless, you hopefully get the picture of how serious these focal infections can be.
After reviewing the thorough and painstaking work of Dr. Weston A. Price, it has become clear that many a heart attack which has killed its victim actually started in the tooth socket cavitation, the root-canaled tooth or the infected crowned tooth which went unnoticed or untreated for two or three or four decades. By removing the infected teeth of an individual who died of cardiovascular disease and implanting them under the skin of a rabbit, Dr. Price documented that the rabbit then succumbed to the same type of heart disease as the original human victim.
Dr. George Meinig, D.D.S. to the rescue
The Health Coach who is the author of this Root Canal coaching session was fortunate to study under Dr. George Meinig, DDS, FACD. With Dr. Meinig as our mentor for over ten years we were able to fully apprehend the catastrophic consequences to the health of those countries where root canals are performed in the greatest numbers. Clearly the incidence of the Alphabet Soup Diseases, Multi-Infection Syndromes and New Millennium Maladies have skyrocketed in those areas where root canals are routinely performed. Dr. Meinigâ€™s book Root Canal Cover-Up nicely details all the reasons why you ought to re-consider the dentist advice of root canal â€˜therapyâ€™.
There is no question that autoimmune disorders have become a predominant theme in the aforementioned groupings of syndromes, diseases and infections. Hereâ€™s why:
When the human body is subjected â€” day after day, month after month, year after year â€” to relentless, raging focal infections, completely under the radar, they take a HUGE toll on the individualâ€™s immune system. So huge, as a matter of fact, that the immune system goes on the fritz. Call it auto-immune dysregulation, autoimmune disorder, autoimmune disease, or autoimmune syndrome; you know when you have it, because your quality of life is absolutely miserable
