A root canal is one of the most common dental procedures. It involves removing infected tooth pulp and sealing the tooth with a rubber-like material to keep stave off tooth decay.
Although the procedure is deemed as safe, not all dentists are aware of the potential health risks of root canal. According to Dr. Weston Price, a dentist, and researcher, root canaled teeth will always remain infected or vulnerable to infection.
Despite a successful root canal, it will only be a matter of time before the tooth becomes infected again. Dr. Price also discovered that it is ” mechanically impossible to sterilize a root-canaled tooth.”
There is a common dental procedure that nearly every dentist will tell you is completely safe, despite the fact that scientists have been warning of its dangers for more than 100 years. Every day in the United States alone, 41,000 of these dental procedures are performed on patients who believe they are safely and permanently fixing their problem.
So what is this dental procedure? The root canal. More than 25 million root canals are performed every year in the United States alone.
Root-canaled teeth are essentially “dead” teeth that can become silent incubators for highly toxic anaerobic bacteria that can, under certain conditions, make their way into your bloodstream to cause a number of serious medical conditions — many not appearing until decades later. Most of these toxic teeth feel and look fine for many years, which make their role in systemic disease even harder to trace back.
Sadly, the vast majority of dentists are oblivious to the serious potential health risks they are exposing their patients to, risks that persist for the rest of their patients’ lives. The American Dental Association claims root canals have been proven safe, but they have NO published data or actual research to substantiate this claim.
