(NaturalHealth365) Maintaining good oral hygiene and seeking high-quality dental care is critical for long-term health, as the benefits of good dental health extend beyond the teeth and gums. Conversely, poor oral health can lead to adverse outcomes and increase the risk of disease. In fact, research has established a correlation between dental treatments and infections and a variety of chronic systemic diseases.
Leo Cashman, the Executive Director of the Dental Amalgam Mercury Solutions (DAMS), an organization that raises awareness about the potential health risks associated with dental amalgam fillings, has emphasized the importance of addressing issues like root canal treated teeth. Cashman warns that a dead tooth that has undergone a root canal procedure is prone to infection and can be a serious health problem for individuals who have them.
In the absence of the ability to fight off the infection of a dead tooth, it could turn toxic and cause severe damage.
Your local dentist is probably not able to speak the truth about your health
Surprising to most people: Dental infections, root canals, and cavitations are among the most common causes of disease – especially when these factors are combined with other health or lifestyle issues. Together, they have a synergistic effect on the body and can wreak havoc on the cardiovascular, immune, and neurological systems. Diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, autoimmune disease, and neurological damage are just some of the conditions that have been associated with dental infections and their conventional treatment protocols.
Are root canals really that dangerous? (Yes!)
Many prestigious health researchers have theorized that a majority of systemic diseases are directly associated with tooth, tonsil, and soft tissue infections in the mouth. The dangers are considerable and rise significantly among those with chronic infections. In fact, even the frequent development of very minor infections can lead to subtle but progressive (negative) changes within the cardiovascular system, and these oral infections are the root cause of most heart attacks!
Keep this in mind: Root canal treatments contain dangerous anaerobic bacteria that get pushed into the bloodstream during common dental procedures. A tooth that has undergone a root canal is likely to accumulate bacteria over time, creating an ongoing infection that may lead to serious health issues.
In fact, research has shown that all root canals have the potential to contribute to the risk of systemic infections. This can lead to inflammation, which can damage the body’s immune response and contribute to the development of serious conditions like cancer, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and heart disease.
What about those cavitations, gum disease, and mercury-based “silver” fillings?
The gums can harbor dangerous bacteria due to poor dental hygiene or previous dental treatment.
Cavitations, for instance, are chronically infected sites within the mouth – usually where an extraction has occurred. They are particularly common at the site of wisdom teeth extractions, occurring in up to 80 percent of all wisdom tooth extraction sites.
Also common is the development of gum disease, in which the bacteria accumulates below the gum line, causing the gums to recede and pull away from the teeth. And, of course, “silver” fillings contain a neurotoxic substance (mercury) that does leak out and end up poisoning the gut, brain, digestive system and bloodstream.
Both types of infection have been linked to serious health issues, including heart problems, stroke, and arthritis
Another serious oral health risk is not an infection but rather stems from the treatment of an infection. Sadly, mercury-based ‘silver’ fillings – also known as amalgam fillings – are continuously touted as ‘safe’ despite causing the accumulation of mercury throughout the body.
This leads to long-term toxicity that can persist long after a mercury filling has been removed and replaced with a non-toxic alternative. Mercury fillings have been linked to a host of health problems, the most prominent of which include neurological and autoimmune issues like multiple sclerosis, tremors, anxiety, depression, plus much more!
Get educated about the dangers of dental infections
Despite evidence that supports serious health consequences associated with dental infections and treatments, the Food and Drug Administration continues to approve and endorse dangerous oral health protocols. It is important to arm yourself with knowledge about the importance of prevention and choosing safer dental treatments because government health agencies are clearly ‘asleep at the wheel.’
