A root canal tooth develops a deep cavity infection in the inner parts of the tooth called the pulp. Dentists have been doing root canal treatments for many years. They will recommend root canals to their patients who are experiencing pain from a tooth. This agendum is designed to allieviate pain as well as protect the natural tooth. The procedure entails drilling through the crown (top of the tooth) and then removal of the obvious decayed matter within the tooth’s deep cavity (the pulp). The blood and lymph vessels as well as the nerve within this area are removed, and the blood and oxygen supply is cut off. The deep cavity is cleansed and sterilized with a sodium hypochlorite solution, a commonly used disinfectant. The tooth is then filled with a permanent rubberlike substance called guttpercha. It is to prevent bacteria or fluids from entering the tooth through the root. The natural tooth is permeable, that means the blood and lymph flow in and out of the tooth through the root into the pulp, but the tooth has now lost its permeability. The tooth will not recieve any blood, fluids etc and it now becomes a ‘dead tooth’. A crown is then cemented on top of the tooth. Sealing the main canal does not account for the thousands of side canals that branch off each tooth. They will be left untouched, made up of dead rotting nerves which the bacteria will feed off of and leak their toxic waste into the blood stream. There is a major assumption that the sanitation of the oral cavity kills 100% of infectious agents. It does not! Antibiotics are not any different from the disinfectants that cannot reach bacteria or the oxygen that is depriving the root canal environment. Without circulation and blood flow, antibiotics that are intended to kill the pathogens in your mouth are instead depleteing the healthy bacteria in your body that are suppoed to protect the immune system. I, personally, for my body’s health, have gone through this procedure twice and ended up removing both root-canaled teeth and replacing them will metal free implants, (in the same day).
