Root canal treatment is treatment for a tooth that has become infected or dead. After scraping out the inside of the tooth the dentist will attempt to disinfect the tooth and the canals to eliminate any source of infection.
According to Dr. Meinig, no matter what material or technique is used ALL root-filled teeth harbor bacteria and/or other infective agents. He explains that the bulk of solid appearing teeth, called the dentin, actually consist of tiny tubules. If these tubules were stretched out on the ground they would stretch for three miles. A root-filled tooth lacks blood supply to its inside, so circulating antibiotics don’t faze the bacteria living there because they cannot get at them. The bacteria can migrate out into surrounding tissue where they can “hitch hike” to other locations in the body via the bloodstream. The new location can be any organ or gland or tissue, and the new colony will be the next focus of infection in a body plagued by recurrent or chronic infections, resulting in very poor health.
DENTAL TOOTHAs soon as an infected root filled tooth was removed from a woman who suffered from severe arthritis it was implanted beneath the skin of a healthy rabbit. Within 48 hours the rabbit was crippled with arthritis and within 10 days it died.
Further, once the tooth was removed the patient’s arthritis improved dramatically. This clearly suggested that the presence of the infected tooth was a causative agent for both that patient’s and the rabbit’s arthritis.
Bacteria trapped inside the structure of teeth migrate throughout the body. They may infect any organ, gland or tissue and can damage the heart, kidneys, joints, eyes, brain and endanger pregnant women.
The root canal must be removed in a specific way to remove the bacteria. It is not as simple as just ripping out the tooth as done by some dentists.
