I had a Molar tooth out 5 months ago that had root canal treatment 12 years previous and I am happy with the gap so far. I do not want am implant and definitely do not like the idea of a bridge that would file down 2 good teeth.
I still have 1 other tooth that had root canal treatment 12 years ago so am interested what you chose to do.
I believe that root canals lead to hypothyroid because after having a crown break I developed an infection. I treated it and was supposed to have the tooth pulled but didn't it was reinfected . I finally removed the tooth a year later and lost bone mass and now am having sinus issues and many symptoms of hypothyroidism. I'm going for testing today
I will post once I am back have to apply for wife a passport report back in about 30 days when I get there ..also plan to order the hair mineral test eventually and go from there also humaworm at some point I've got 3 ways tackle this root cause
Teeth (90% positive this is root cause)
Parasites(I don't suspect have no diarrea or other related issues)
Heavy metal (maybe)
Is using 3% Hydrogen Peroxide as a mouthwash twice a day after flossing and brushing safe for the gums and teeth?
I ask because of posts such as this one from a Google search on the question.
"research shows that it (Hydrogen Peroxide) can penetrate the tooth enamel and dentin and reach the very inner tooth chamber called dental pulp. Hydrogen peroxide has low molecular weight and the ability to destroy proteins, which facilitate diffusion through enamel and dentin. The dental pulp is where the blood vessels and nerves of each tooth reside, which makes this area particularly sensitive. A unique class of cells, called odontoblasts also reside in the periphery of the dental pulp area, which support the teeth by depositing new dentin layers throughout life and are also believed to play a protective/reparative role in response to dental carries or other environmental factors that harm teeth. The problem with hydrogen peroxide is that it has a cytotoxic effect on the dental pulp cells, which means that it literally kills them. A study published in 2013 in the Journal of Endodontics shows that even low concentrations of hydrogen peroxide trigger molecular mechanisms in pulp cells, which activate programmed cell death."
I had root canal treatment on 2 Molars about 12 years ago, had one of those extracted last year and will leave the gap there for as long as I can chew on the other side of my mouth.
I do not really want any foreign body put back in my mouth like a metal screw in the jawbone for the implant.
If in future I develop an abscess and am told I need root canal treatment on another tooth, what alternative is there besides having the tooth extracted?
My teeth look OK now but I was told I had been brushing too often and incorrectly receding my gums in 2008.
I do oil pull twice a day, floss, brush twice a day with a soft brush, oral pik with 3% Hydrochloric acid, apply Oregano oil around the gum line once a week,.
Drink raw milk, green tea, bone broth daily.
I am in the same boat as u were I just read this and its like I wrote the damn thing I found a biological dentist and until I get in I will buy some silver for sure crazy other people go thru this mess did u get better ?
Know that there are hundreds of docs throughtout the world and many scientific studies that point to root canals being as bad as smoking for your health. Like smoking not everyone gets sick and many takes years
Google and you will find many articles.
I would never risk my life on a root canal
12 years ago I had root canal treatment on LR6 and LR7.
LR6 started to smell when I touched the gum around that tooth and later developed an Abscess.
I had LR6 extracted last September and both of the roots drilled out.
I still have the gap and want to leave it that way as I do not want anything foreign put in it's place like a titanium screw.
I have been Coconut Oil pulling since September and making my own Toothpaste since November because I did not want to use Flouride or Glycerin.
I just visited my Mother in another part of the UK and decided for the first time to see the Dentist she used to ask him about LR7 because the gum around that tooth smells when touched.
There is no pain.
I do not want to lose this tooth and want to try and save it but get rid of the smell. (daily use of Bentonite clay and Oregano oil helps but it always comes back).
He took an X-Ray which showed O/E LR7 metal crown and LR8 slightly mesio-angular impacted against LR7. (I can just get dental tape between the teeth but not far down as the gum is in the way)
There is a 6mm periodontal pocket with bleeding on probing between LR7 and LR8.
Mesial caries developing under mesial crown ledge LR7.
I need to find a good Hygienist that can do a deep scaling and good Dentist that can repair LR7 mesial or crown replacement in this area of the UK.
My current Dentist will want to pull it out and the Hygienist is as useful as a chocolate Tea Pot compared to the one I used to see regularly where I used to live.
The Dentist asked me what Toothpaste I use, I told him Bentonite Clay with, Diatomaceous Earth, Coconut Oil and Baking Soda.
He advised me to use a Flouride Toothpaste and gave me a sample tube containing 1450 PPM.
He said Flouride Toothpaste is needed to prevent dental caries.
