Dr. Price, a dentist known for his work on the relationship between nutrition and dental health, was able to show that root canals can cause chronic diseases of inflammation by experimenting on rabbits.
He conducted a series of experiments on rabbits, using extracted teeth from people with various health problems. His research found that rabbits would develop the condition that the person with the tooth had.
In other words: when using a tooth from a person with heart attacks and arthritis, the rabbit implanted with the root canal tooth would develop heart attacks and arthritis within a few weeks.
The bacteria that are found inside of root canals include groups of bacteria called Fusobacterium, Parvimonas, Prevotella, Porphyromonas, Dialister, Streptococcus, and Treponema.
Many of these bacteria are naturally present in the mouth, but they only become a problem when we are infected with them. When they grow in the root canal, the anaerobic conditions inside the root canal can cause these bacteria to become more dangerous. In addition, the ecosystem of these bacteria can make them even more dangerous.
These bacteria, in the context of periodontal infections, are linked to many chronic inflammatory diseases:
The bacteria Fusobacterium, Porphyromonas, and Treponema are linked to atherosclerosis.
The bacteria Porphyromonas is linked to Alzheimer’s disease through its ability to create inflammation in the body. ?
Porphyromonas, Treponema, and Tannerella are linked to poor blood sugar control and diabetes.
Dentists who speak out against the safety of root canals bring up 3 main concerns:
1. There is no way to completely remove all the dead tissue from the tooth.
2. There is no way to sterilise the tooth, thus leaving bacteria in the tooth.
3. The materials used to fill the hollowed out tooth leak and cause problems “downstream”.
If you have unexplained health conditions, please be sure to consider the health of your teeth and ALWAYS look for a holistic dentist if considering having these removed. We must ensure all bacteria is properly removed, often with ozone therapy.
To health and happiness,
