One Woman’s Failed Root Canal

by | Dental Risk Factors

I am amazed at how many people have failed root canals and don’t know it. Typically invisible to dental x-ray, acute dental issues under the gum line remain the most common potentially life-threatening finding observed at The Thermogram Center.

Let’s celebrate the success of one woman whose surprise thermal finding preceded a healthy 62 pounds of weight loss.

Dental Infections/Abscesses

If you’ve ever had a cavity, then there is a chance for the infection to migrate into the pulp, and the miles of micro-tubules of the infected roots and surrounding bone.

The constant trickle of toxic waste from these infections challenge the immune system and the body.

Acute dental issues can lead to cancers, heart attacks and deaths. Yet, they are called silent killers because they do not typically show on 2-D x-ray or create sensations in the mouth (not early).


Root Canaled Teeth Are Not Only Dead – They Are Toxic

Once a tooth is root canaled it is essentially dead and toxic to the body. Each tooth and its roots have about three miles of microtubules, which can become infected with microbes. When a root canal is performed, the tooth is hollowed out, filled with a plastic material of coagulated latex and then crowned. While the tooth is essentially “dead,” not all the miles of tubules have been filled.

As a result, remaining microbes can proliferate, mutate to become anaerobic, and live on surrounding healthy tissue for nutrition – the periodontal ligament and surrounding bone.

Have you heard the term gangrene, the decomposition of body tissue? The dead tooth in itself is toxic. Worse yet, the toxic microbial infections in teeth and surrounding tissue have been linked to heart attacks, (breast) cancers, and rheumatic, kidney, neurological, and autoimmune diseases, and more.

The Root of All Disease

Dr. George Meinig, one of America’s leading endodontists, Weston Price, one of America’s greatest dentists, and Hal Huggins, a Colorado pioneer in biological dentistry have professed that our teeth cause the largest number of diseases ever traced to a single source.

Chronic dental infections’ “highly toxic bacteria can cause osteonecrosis, weaken overall health and contribute to health problems often without any obvious pain in the jaw area.” (source)

The next time someone tells you they have cancer or a chronic illness,
ask them if they’ve had a root canal.


Surprise Finding

The Thermogram Center, former camera.

In 2012, this client realized she had cracked root canaled tooth #5 when a piece of its crown came out of her mouth. Her dentist repaired the crown. Months later, she came to The Thermogram Center for routine thermal imaging of her breasts and body.

While she was asymptomatic and her dentist thought all was well, her face images revealed significant findings. She subsequently saw an oral surgeon for further evaluation. Bone infection was diagnosed. The tooth was extracted and bone grafting and a zirconia implant and crown followed.


Celebrating 62 Pounds Lost

The Thermogram Center, current camera.

As of July 2015, the client has lost 62 pounds. As her functional doctor has explained, “Once they were able to get her liver and gall bladder ‘unclogged,’ her body was able to metabolize and detox her body more normally.” Interestingly, tooth #5 can impact the liver and gall bladder. (See the Tooth-Organ Chart, in the Learn More section, below.)

Note the symmetry in the colors and thermal patterns of her cheeks and the absence of any significant heat, or infection, near tooth #5.


Key Learnings – What You Can Do

Since (early) dental infections do not typically show via 2-D dental x-ray but create heat, consider The Thermogram Center to detect early warning signs. Teeth imaging is recommended every 3-5 years. When warning signs are present, or a client is in need of a dental specialist, we can suggest holistic biological dentists that can diagnose and treat infections and cavitations.

Seek holistic biological dentists who provide ozone injection and when the tooth cannot be saved, pre, post and operation protocols that support the immune system.

If the tooth is extracted, consider a flipper, partial denture or zirconia (a non-metal) implant and crown (rather than a bridge because it is at the expense of the two adjacent teeth, which require crowns to secure the bridge.)

Our mission at The Thermogram Center, Inc. is preventive education. Environmental causes of human cancer are manageable. However, the public remains unaware of the many common environmental carcinogens and the actions necessary to mitigate their risk. We hope to be a reliable source of information to help you protect you and your family from the hazardous chemicals in the air, water, food, and products threatening your well being.
