Story at-a-glance -

  • The Academy of General Dentistry reports at least 40 million suffer from sensitive teeth resulting from irritants reaching nerve endings through a tube system in the dentin of your teeth
  • This dental anatomy was described by Dr. Weston Price in the early 1900s when he found anaerobic bacterial growth in these tubes were infecting teeth and gums and traveling throughout the body
  • Price was able to link the spread of bacteria to chronic diseases, including heart disease, arthritis and neurological conditions; he also linked the growth of bacteria to a refined food diet
  • Root canals leave dead teeth in your mouth, which ultimately become infected, just as any dead part of the body does. These bacteria can circulate through your body as your blood and lymphatic systems drain toxins from the area
  • One step toward achieving good oral health is to integrate holistic and preventive nutritional and oral health strategies to support your oral microbiome and to seek the care of a biological dentist

According to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, 92% of adults aged 20 to 64 have had cavities in their permanent teeth. Interestingly, Caucasian adults and those living in families with higher incomes have had more decay, or at least have been treated for more cavities. Adults in the same age range have an average of 3.28 decayed or missing permanent teeth.

While many believe water fluoridation is an effective way of preventing tooth decay, supporting facts are just not there. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) data reported by the Fluoride Action Network, the U.S., which provides fluoridated water to 74.6% of community water systems, has higher rates of tooth decay than many countries that do not fluoridate their water, including Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium and Sweden.
