    Default Root Canals: Cause of Many Degenerative Diseases

    http://www.realfarmacy.com/97-of-ter...tal-procedure/
    97% of Terminal Cancer Patients Previously Had This Dental Procedure…
    by Dr. Mercola

    Quote Do you have a chronic degenerative disease? If so, have you been told, “It’s all in your head?”
    Well, that might not be that far from the truth… the root cause of your illness may be in your mouth.
    There is a common dental procedure that nearly every dentist will tell you is completely safe, despite the fact that scientists have been warning of its dangers for more than 100 years.
    Every day in the United States alone, 41,000 of these dental procedures are performed on patients who believe they are safely and permanently fixing their problem.
    What is this dental procedure?

    The root canal.
    More than 25 million root canals are performed every year in this country.

    Root-canaled teeth are essentially “dead” teeth that can become silent incubators for highly toxic anaerobic bacteria that can, under certain conditions, make their way into your bloodstream to cause a number of serious medical conditions—many not appearing until decades later.

    Most of these toxic teeth feel and look fine for many years, which make their role in systemic disease even harder to trace back.

    Sadly, the vast majority of dentists are oblivious to the serious potential health risks they are exposing their patients to, risks that persist for the rest of their patients’ lives. The American Dental Association claims root canals have been proven safe, but they have NO published data or actual research to substantiate this claim.

    Fortunately, I had some early mentors like Dr. Tom Stone and Dr. Douglas Cook, who educated me on this issue nearly 20 years ago. Were it not for a brilliant pioneering dentist who, more than a century ago, made the connection between root-canaled teeth and disease, this underlying cause of disease may have remained hidden to this day. The dentist’s name was Weston Price—regarded by many as the greatest dentist of all time.

    Weston A. Price: World’s Greatest Dentist

    Most dentists would be doing an enormous service to public health if they familiarized themselves with the work of Dr. Weston Price. Unfortunately, his work continues to be discounted and suppressed by medical and dental professionals alike.

    Dr. Price was a dentist and researcher who traveled the world to study the teeth, bones, and diets of native populations living without the “benefit” of modern food. Around the year 1900, Price had been treating persistent root canal infections and became suspicious that root-canaled teeth always remained infected, in spite of treatments. Then one day, he recommended to a woman, wheelchair bound for six years, to have her root canal tooth extracted, even though it appeared to be fine.

    She agreed, so he extracted her tooth and then implanted it under the skin of a rabbit. The rabbit amazingly developed the same crippling arthritis as the woman and died from the infection 10 days later. But the woman, now free of the toxic tooth, immediately recovered from her arthritis and could now walk without even the assistance of a cane.

    Price discovered that it’s mechanically impossible to sterilize a root-canaled (e.g. root-filled) tooth.
    He then went on to show that many chronic degenerative diseases originate from root-filled teeth—the most frequent being heart and circulatory diseases. He actually found 16 different causative bacterial agents for these conditions. But there were also strong correlations between root-filled teeth and diseases of the joints, brain and nervous system. Dr. Price went on to write two groundbreaking books in 1922 detailing his research into the link between dental pathology and chronic illness. Unfortunately, his work was deliberately buried for 70 years, until finally one endodontist named George Meinig recognized the importance of Price’s work and sought to expose the truth.

    Dr. Meinig Advances the Work of Dr. Price

    Dr. Meinig, a native of Chicago, was a captain in the U.S. Army during World War II before moving to Hollywood to become a dentist for the stars. He eventually became one of the founding members of the American Association of Endodontists (root canal specialists).

    In the 1990s, he spent 18 months immersed in Dr. Price’s research. In June of 1993, Dr. Meinig published the book Root Canal Cover-Up, which continues to be the most comprehensive reference on this topic today. You can order your copy directly from the Price-Pottenger Foundationii.

    What Dentists Don’t Know About the Anatomy of Your Teeth

    Your teeth are made of the hardest substances in your body.

    In the middle of each tooth is the pulp chamber, a soft living inner structure that houses blood vessels and nerves. Surrounding the pulp chamber is the dentin, which is made of living cells that secrete a hard mineral substance. The outermost and hardest layer of your tooth is the white enamel, which encases the dentin.

    The roots of each tooth descend into your jawbone and are held in place by the periodontal ligament. In dental school, dentists are taught that each tooth has one to four major canals. However, there are accessory canals that are never mentioned. Literally miles of them!

    Just as your body has large blood vessels that branch down into very small capillaries, each of your teeth has a maze of very tiny tubules that, if stretched out, would extend for three miles. Weston Price identified as many as 75 separate accessory canals in a single central incisor (front tooth). For a more detailed explanation, refer to an article by Hal Huggins, DDS, MS, on the Weston A. Price Foundation website.iii (These images are borrowed from the Huggins article.)

    Microscopic organisms regularly move in and around these tubules, like gophers in underground tunnels.

    When a dentist performs a root canal, he or she hollows out the tooth, then fills the hollow chamber with a substance (called guttapercha), which cuts off the tooth from its blood supply, so fluid can no longer circulate through the tooth. But the maze of tiny tubules remains. And bacteria, cut off from their food supply, hide out in these tunnels where they are remarkably safe from antibiotics and your own body’s immune defenses.

    The Root Cause of Much Disease

    Under the stresses of oxygen and nutrient deprivation, these formerly friendly organisms morph into stronger, more virulent anaerobes that produce a variety of potent toxins. What were once ordinary, friendly oral bacteria mutate into highly toxic pathogens lurking in the tubules of the dead tooth, just awaiting an opportunity to spread.

    No amount of sterilization has been found effective in reaching these tubules—and just about every single root-canaled tooth has been found colonized by these bacteria, especially around the apex and in the periodontal ligament. Oftentimes, the infection extends down into the jawbone where it creates cavitations—areas of necrotic tissue in the jawbone itself.

    Cavitations are areas of unhealed bone, often accompanied by pockets of infected tissue and gangrene. Sometimes they form after a tooth extraction (such as a wisdom tooth extraction), but they can also follow a root canal. According to Weston Price Foundation, in the records of 5,000 surgical cavitation cleanings, only two were found healed.

    And all of this occurs with few, if any, accompanying symptoms. So you may have an abscessed dead tooth and not know it. This focal infection in the immediate area of the root-canaled tooth is bad enough, but the damage doesn’t stop there.

    Root Canals Can Lead to Heart, Kidney, Bone, and Brain Disease

    As long as your immune system remains strong, any bacteria that stray away from the infected tooth are captured and destroyed. But once your immune system is weakened by something like an accident or illness or other trauma, your immune system may be unable to keep the infection in check.

    These bacteria can migrate out into surrounding tissues by hitching a ride into your blood stream, where they are transported to new locations to set up camp. The new location can be any organ or gland or tissue.

    Dr. Price was able to transfer diseases harbored by humans to rabbits, by implanting fragments of root-canaled teeth, as mentioned above. He found that root canal fragments from a person who had suffered a heart attack, when implanted into a rabbit, would cause a heart attack in the rabbit within a few weeks.

    He discovered he could transfer heart disease to the rabbit 100 percent of the time! Other diseases were more than 80 percent transferable by this method. Nearly every chronic degenerative disease has been linked with root canals, including:
    -Heart disease
    -Kidney disease
    -Arthritis, joint, and rheumatic diseases
    -Neurological diseases (including ALS and MS)
    -Autoimmune diseases (Lupus and more)
    There may also be a cancer connection. Dr. Robert Jones, a researcher of therelationship between root canals and breast cancer, found an extremely high correlation between root canals and breast cancer.iv He claims to have found the following correlations in a five-year study of 300 breast cancer cases:

    -93 percent of women with breast cancer had root canals
    -7 percent had other oral pathology
    -Tumors, in the majority of cases, occurred on the same side of the body as the root canal(s) or other oral pathology
    Dr. Jones claims that toxins from the bacteria in an infected tooth or jawbone are able to inhibit the proteins that suppress tumor development. A German physician reported similar findings. Dr. Josef Issels reported that, in his 40 years of treating “terminal” cancer patients, 97 percent of his cancer patients had root canals. If these physicians are correct, the cure for cancer may be as simple as having a tooth pulled, then rebuilding your immune system.

    Good Bugs Gone Bad

    How are these mutant oral bacteria connected with heart disease or arthritis? The ADA and the AAE claim it’s a “myth” that the bacteria found in and around root-canaled teeth can cause disease. But they base that on the misguided assumption that the bacteria in these diseased teeth are the SAME as normal bacteria in your mouth—and that’s clearly not the case.

    Today, bacteria can be identified using DNA analysis, whether they’re dead or alive, from their telltale DNA signatures.

    In a continuation of Dr. Price’s work, the Toxic Element Research Foundation (TERF) used DNA analysis to examine root-canal teeth, and they found bacterial contamination in 100 percent of the samples tested. They identified 42 different species of anaerobic bacteria in 43 root canal samples. In cavitations, 67 different bacteria were identified among the 85 samples tested, with individual samples housing between 19 to 53 types of bacteria each. The bacteria they found included the following types:

    -Capnocytophagaochracea
    -Fusobacteriumnucleatum
    -Gemellamorbillorum
    -Leptotrichiabuccalis
    -Porphyromonasgingivalis
    Are these just benign, ordinary mouth bugs? Absolutely not. Four can affect your heart, three can affect your nerves, two can affect your kidneys, two can affect your brain, and one can infect your sinus cavities… so they are anything BUT friendly! (If you want see just how unfriendly they can be, I invite you to investigate the footnotes.)

    Approximately 400 percent more bacteria were found in the blood surrounding the root canal tooth than were found in the tooth itself, suggesting the tooth is the incubator and the periodontal ligament is the food supply. The bone surrounding root-canaled teeth was found even HIGHER in bacterial count… not surprising, since bone is virtual buffet of bacterial nutrients.

    Since When is Leaving A Dead Body Part IN Your Body a Good Idea?

    There is no other medical procedure that involves allowing a dead body part to remain in your body. When your appendix dies, it’s removed. If you get frostbite or gangrene on a finger or toe, it is amputated. If a baby dies in utero, the body typically initiates a miscarriage.

    Your immune system doesn’t care for dead substances, and just the presence of dead tissue can cause your system to launch an attack, which is another reason to avoid root canals—they leave behind a dead tooth.

    Infection, plus the autoimmune rejection reaction, causes more bacteria to collect around the dead tissue. In the case of a root canal, bacteria are given the opportunity to flush into your blood stream every time you bite down.

    Why Dentists Cling to the Belief Root Canals are Safe

    The ADA rejects Dr. Price’s evidence, claiming root canals are safe, yet they offer no published data or actual research to substantiate their claim. American Heart Association recommends a dose of antibiotics before many routine dental procedures to prevent infective endocarditis (IE) if you have certain heart conditions that predispose you to this type of infection.

    So, on the one hand, the ADA acknowledges oral bacteria can make their way from your mouth to your heart and cause a life-threatening infection.

    But at the same time, the industry vehemently denies any possibility that these same bacteria—toxic strains KNOWN to be pathogenic to humans—can hide out in your dead root-canaled tooth to be released into your blood stream every time you chew, where they can damage your health in a multitude of ways.

    Is this really that large of a leap? Could there be another reason so many dentists, as well as the ADA and the AAE, refuse to admit root canals are dangerous? Well, yes, as a matter of fact, there is. Root canals are the most profitable procedure in dentistry.

    What You Need to Know to AVOID a Root Canal

    I strongly recommend never getting a root canal. Risking your health to preserve a tooth simply doesn’t make sense. Unfortunately, there are many people who’ve already have one. If you have, you should seriously consider having the tooth removed, even if it looks and feels fine. Remember, as soon as your immune system is compromised, your risk of of developing a serious medical problem increases—and assaults on your immune system are far too frequent in today’s world.

    If you have a tooth removed, there are a few options available to you.
    1)Partial denture: This is a removable denture, often just called a “partial.” It’s the simplest and least expensive option.
    2)Bridge: This is a more permanent fixture resembling a real tooth but is a bit more involved and expensive to build.
    3)Implant: This is a permanent artificial tooth, typically titanium, implanted in your gums and jaw. There are some problems with these due to reactions to the metals used. Zirconium is a newer implant material that shows promise for fewer complications.
    But just pulling the tooth and inserting some sort of artificial replacement isn’t enough.

    Dentists are taught to remove the tooth but leave your periodontal ligament. But as you now know, this ligament can serve as a breeding ground for deadly bacteria. Most experts who’ve studied this recommend removing the ligament, along with one millimeter of the bony socket, in order to drastically reduce your risk of developing an infection from the bacterially infected tissues left behind.



    I strongly recommend consulting a biological dentist because they are uniquely trained to do these extractions properly and safely, as well as being adept at removing mercury fillings, if necessary. Their approach to dental care is far more holistic and considers the impact on your entire body—not JUST your mouth.

    If you need to find a biological dentist in your area, I recommend visiting toxicteeth.org, a resource sponsored by Consumers for Dental Choice. This organization, championed by Charlie Brown, is a highly reputable organization that has fought to protect and educate consumers so that they can make better-informed decisions about their dental care. The organization also heads up the Campaign for Mercury-Free Dentistry.

    Thank you, mine had to be removed about 4 years ago. Only had one, but it caused a lot of problems and wouldn't take, before it just chipped so low, they had to remove it. They talked me into it. I wanted it gone, but they said they could save it. It turned a deeper shade of grey and they offer to bleach it. Enough already charging for stuff that isn't safe or doesn't work. Anything for a buck has cost people many heart attacks, kidney failures and immune difficiencies, so they can expect to make lots of money, when the shtf time released to kill slowly.

    Interesting. I have two root-canaled teeth. One seems fine but the other not. Sometimes I got sick (flu, for instance) and the last one hurts, which is quite strange, given the procedure done to it. More curious yet is that one time I asked a dentist to x-ray it for me using a digital equipament he has and that shows a lot more details than the usually machine found at dental clinics here at XXX that just "prints" your teeth on a black card and it showed dark spots that could be small infections... Something then was put inside this tooth, filled with fluoride, and now the situation is much better. But you know what people here says about fluoride...

    Wow cool to see this thread this morning! I am just on my way to a biological dentist for my initial appointment towards getting my 10 year old root canal tooth extracted. After going to a traditional dentist and more or less getting yelled at for asking such a thing. (Actually he told me he thought mercury fillings were safe to, I kid u not) I am so happy to have found the julian center in Maryland. It makes no sense to leave dead rotting body parts in our person! Only a matter of time before it goes toxic IMO.

    That's disturbingly enlightening. I've had three failed root canals. One of them caused an infection that landed me in the ER. The ER told me I should have gone back to my dentist instead. Somehow, I was able to remain calm while explaining that the dentist was not available at 4 a.m. on Sunday.

    I have always had a sweet tooth, and lots of grinding my teeth from stress when I was younger, so I ended up with a number of cavities and a number of root canals.
    The dentist who did most of them told me out front that he didn't know if they were really safe, and said he would advise having them pulled and getting dentures instead.
    So I have to credit him for that, but I was in my 20s then, about 40 years ago when root canals weren't as common as today and the problems with them hadn't really been identified.
    I finally had those teeth extracted a couple of years ago, and have been feeling much better, even though dentures aren't a lot of fun, either.
    And I'm not so sure that implants are all that safe.
    I wonder if stem cells might enable teeth to grow back.
    Wouldn't that be nice!

    I've had chronic post nasal drip of a very viscous quality ever since I had a root canal done about 3 and a half years ago. I told my doctor about 2 years ago that I thought the cause of my problem was my root canal and he could barely keep from laughing at me. I can tell when something is out of whack in my body and often can pinpoint the source. My husband yelled at me the other day when I mentioned having the tooth pulled. He said, "O.K.!!! JUST GO AHEAD AND THROW AWAY A $3,000 DOLLAR TOOTH!!! He thinks I'm silly for thinking my tooth is causing this chronic, super-nuisance of a problem, but I'll never have another r.c.

    It's hard to know how much of this is legit. It makes sense to me that if you had something that awful in your mouth, it would cause tremendous swelling and inflammation, that was noticeable in the gum area as well as showing up in your blood stream.

    About three years ago, I had a severe toothache and was faced with having to have a root canal, so I read Weston Price's book, Nutrition and Physical Degeneration, first. After reading, I decided to postpone the root canal procedure, and started implementing some of his dietary findings, such as sourcing a supply of high vitamin butter, taking cod liver oil and eating organ meat, plus cutting out refined white flour and sugar, etc.

    I then used energetic healing to clear the bacterial infection and regenerate the root (it was dying but not dead yet, thus causing pain). The healing technique also enables one to scan, so I was able to monitor progress in getting rid of the bacterial infection. My dentist's assistant phoned me and I told her what I was doing - surprisingly she was ok with it. It took about two months to clear everything.

    After that, my tooth felt normal, I was able to eat anything, including nuts. Tapping the tooth did not cause any sensitivity. I haven't been back to the dentist since.

    My point is that often, one can heal oneself. And it's an amazing exploration ...

    One thread says root canals are fine, another says they cause cancer - I'm wondering where all these opinions are coming from? One needs to put thought into their dentistry and consider the alternatives. For example, extracting a tooth in the middle of your upper or lower jaw will cause the other teeth around it to "fall into the hole" and your teeth will all move a little over time.
    Also, talk to older people who have no teeth & see how hard it is for them to eat normal foods like meat or nuts, etc.

    I have had top dentures and a partial in the bottom jaw since I was 17 years old. I eat everything especially nuts. The secret is in the fit and finding a Denturist .......not a dentist to facilitate the creation of your dentures.

    My understanding is that Denturists, study making dentures and partials for 2 years before certification. A dentist may get 6 weeks if that so go to someone who specializes. Also, don`t stop going back until you have a fit that doesn`t hurt anywhere, make sores or move around with your food when you are chewing. Hope this helps.

    People have always expressed surprise when they find out I wear dentures and for the most part I have never regretted having to get them at such a young age, not that they were even doing root canals when I was 17 hahahahha

    Holistic dentists are having success treating root canal bacterial infections or preventing them by use of ozone. The trick is to get the ozone into the extremely tiny pathways.
    Thanks Conk, do you have any particular references to this?, I'm also concerned with root canal teeth.
    Sorry, no. Have just read about it several times over the years.

    Having had 3 root canal treatments in the long-distant past - I now make my own colloidal silver nano-silver solution, which I use as a mouthwash daily during 'flare-ups'. Any 'niggles' are immediately quashed by this solution. I carry on rinsing 2 - 3 times a day with 30ml of solution, keep in mouth for about a minute after swooshing between teeth, then swallow. The nano-silver solution stays in your gut and kills any other nasties. How to diy - refer to Colloidal Silver and search on PA as there are many ways to do it. I have a machine, and distill my own water prior to electrolising the 99.9% pure silver rods with a 'bubble' activator for 3 hours. The solution keeps in a dark place (not refrigerated) in sealed glass-topped bottles for up to 6 months. I don't like advertising - but here is the machine I use : http://www.thesilveredge.com/howto.shtml There are many others on the market - so feel free to search them for yourselves.
    I used to be taught to go to the dentist every 6 months - and they did so much unnecessary work costing us a fortune. Each time I went they 'loosened' a crown, or disturbed a nerve, I began to realise that with effective brushing, colloidal silver treatments rarely needed to be used - so my dentists vists were curtailed until absolutely necessary. When I returned - they marvelled at my healthy gums and teeth! Take care of yourself, and don't unnecessarily stuff the dentists' pocket. Oh - check your insurance in case it becomes void if you don't go regularly. I am not in that circumstance. Massage gums and brush ;-)

    This is the machine I use also. Have you read anything of silver pulling mercury from fillings? I have this vague memory of it and fear doing what you do orally. I now use MMS for any minor oral infections. It works very well. I would like to try swishing a little silver around in my mouth to possibly kill of some of these bad bugs.

    And yes, Dear God, dentists have ruined my teeth. So many fillings, root canals, crowns. Had I known what I know now. At least my children won't be subject to that invasive, unnecessary BS.

    .
    I'm waking up an old thread here. Thanks to this new article by Erin Elizabeth, Netflix pulls controversial documentary that claims root canals cause cancer, I came across a fairly new documentary, "The Root Cause", starring Aussie Ben Purser, in his own battle with the various health problems caused by a root canal.

    Some of the names I've grown to trust, such as Jerry Tennant, Joseph Mercola, Thomas Levy and Candace Owens, speak frankly of the dangers of root canals to long term health.

    Here's a version on Youtube:

    It's quite well done. I can understand that the American Dental Association would have wanted to suppress this documentary.

    Excellent, thanks.

    About three years ago, I had a severe toothache and was faced with having to have a root canal, so I read Dr. Weston Price's book, Nutrition and Physical Degeneration, first. After reading, I decided to postpone the root canal procedure, and started implementing some of his dietary findings, such as sourcing a supply of high vitamin butter, taking cod liver oil and eating organ meat, plus cutting out refined white flour and sugar, etc.
    Yes. I had the same experience about 20 years ago, when my dentist — truly enlightened! — lent me HER OWN COPY of the book to read overnight so I could make my own informed decision about whether to have the root canal treatment or not. (I came back the next day and told her to pull the tooth.)

    Here's the book — a REALLY valuable asset:
