What is a root canal?
A root canal basically removes the live pulp from your tooth. It is then replaced with a synthetic material, which prevents the tooth from appearing to decay. Root canals also prevent any internal damage that could cause a toothache. You thought that the procedure finally solved your problem, but it really is not that simple.
Aside from the tooth’s central root, there are thousands of small side canals that are not touched by your dentist during a root canal. When the root is eliminated, the nerves in the side canals die and rot. They worsen and turn into a breeding ground for infection and bacteria.
This has been proven in various studies made. However, the American Dental Association refutes the validity of any such study, maintaining that a root canal is safe, but rebuffing to scientifically contest the proof to the contrary.
In 1922, Dr. Weston A. Price wrote a book on the dangers of root canals, but his work was not accepted by the American Dental Association. Others validated his work, which confirmed that root canals are associated with autoimmune diseases including multiple sclerosis and Lou Gehrig’s disease.
Anaerobic bacteria present in the residual roots of the tooth, in the small side canals, worsen the disease. These bacteria do not require oxygen to live and can live off of dead tissue. However, this infection can continue and spread, often without the person knowing.
There are bacteria present in root canals that affect the nervous system and other systems of the body, resulting in the development of autoimmune reactions. However, the American Dental Association doesn’t want to inform people of the many dangers of root canals and your dentist also doesn’t want you to know about it. After all, it is a multi-billion dollar business and any tainting of its image could cost them a huge amount of cash. Sadly for them, more and more people are realizing this concern.
According to the Alliance for Natural Health, over 25 million root canals are performed in the U.S. every year. On the other hand, the number of dentists who discuss the real dangers of this procedure before they perform it can probably be counted on 1 hand.
A study made by Dr. Price showed that when a root-canaled tooth is extracted from the patient and transferred into an animal, it removes diseases such as heart disease or rheumatoid arthritis from its host, but causes the animal to develop the same sickness. In other words, the patient was treated and the animal that has the tooth developed the illness.
Root canals can also disturb a link between body parts and certain teeth as some teeth actually lie on meridian points similar to different glands, tissues and organs. Now, what can you do to avoid the dangers of root canals? You can seek alternatives. For instance, if your tooth is decaying, you can have it extracted. You can also discuss natural options with your dentist like a zirconium or titanium implant or a bridge.
