>>>I just wish I could trust the absolute certainty, and disdain, I heard in the voice of my experienced Oral Surgeon, that "There is no Infection!". Someone posted that Dentists are Liars.<<<
There are few oral surgeons in the U.S. who understand the infectious nature of this process.
>>>I didn't think about precuations after surgery, and gave my wife oral sex the night of my first extraction attempt, but now I realize that was probably dumb.<<<
Hal Huggins recommends having the surgery no more than 10 miles from where you will be spending the first night or two. They also recommend that you eat only soft food, like organic baby food for the first several days and that you not speak AT ALL for 3 or 4 or even 5 days follwing this surgery. There are unique vibrations and pressures that occur in the mouth as one speaks that a clotting/healing wound of this type is just better off not having to deal with.
>>>Germs in the mouth are probably not a good idea with a healing wound.
Have you tried the diagnostic ultasound of your jaw? What treatments are you trying?<<<
The most impressive reports seem to be coming in regarding Dr. Douglas Cook in Suring, WI. He is the only one of these dentists that I know of who had cavitations (jawbone infections) himself that he, with the assistance of another dentist was able to cure. He greatly emphasizes the importance of eating a largely raw food diet and keeping a close eye on one's acid/alkaline balance. He has found this to be a significant factor in whether or not a person's cavitations remain healed following surgery.
>>>I don't understand what they mean when they say don't do a root canal, go to a wholistic dentist. What does the wholistic dentist do?<<<
He will, if he is a person of integrity recommend pulling the tooth. Or, if you have enough money he may suggest trying an implant.
