Discovering Infections Under the Teeth
Infections can exist under the teeth and may be undetectable on X-Rays, especially in root canal treated teeth. Toxins leak out from infections and depress the normal functions of the immune system, leading to disease.
Education on Relationship between Specific Teeth and Illness
When a tooth becomes infected or diseased, the organ on the same acupuncture meridian could also become unhealthy. The opposite is also true: dysfunction in a specific organ could lead to a problem in the corresponding tooth.
Correcting Root Canals that are a cause of Illness
Toxins seeping out of root canals can cause systemic diseases of the heart, kidney, uterus and the nervous and endocrine systems. This may be due to the imperfect seal at the apex that allows bacteria to grow and undergo changes.
