Root Canal Information - What The Experts Say
"Root canals are a zillion times worse than mercury fillings." ~Dr. Hal Huggins
"I see people pushing along in a wheelchair. I wonder when did you have your root canal done? Because root canals so far have turned out to be one of the most vile things that I have ever run into...." ~Dr. Hal Huggins, D.D.S., M.S.
Why should I not have a ROOT CANAL done?
Isn't there something you can put in the center of the canal that is safe?
I recently wrote to Hal:
I am getting people saying Epiphany with Resilon is good to put in root canals and it seals all the roots. Can you please address this? do you have any write-ups on this product?
Write-ups will be in the form of one giant expose! They are looking at the wrong tree to “bark up.” The problem is the infected periodontal ligament on the OUTSIDE of the tooth. Sealing the pulp chamber does not effect the dentinal tubules adjacent to the periodontal ligament- nor the infected ligament itself.

Research has demonstrated that 100% of all root canals result in residual infection due to the imperfect seal that allows bacteria to penetrate. The toxins given off by these bacteria are more toxic than mercury. These toxins can cause systemic diseases of the heart, kidney, uterus, and nervous and endocrine systems. ~Edward Arana, D.D.S., Founding President, American Academy of Biological Dentistry http://curezone.com/dental/
"Root canals are the most toxic most damaging procedure dentists can do. .... So you have to make up your mind what is more important to you. I believe no tooth is worth destroying my immune system." ~Frank Jerome, D.D.S., Author of Tooth Truth

You're assuming that ALL root-filled teeth harbor bacteria and/or other infective agents?
Yes. No matter what material or technique is used - and this is just as true today - the root filling shrinks minutely, perhaps microscopically. Further and this is key - the bulk of solid appearing teeth, called the dentin, actually consists of miles of tiny tubules. Microscopic organisms lurking in the maze of tubules simply migrate into the interior of the tooth and set up housekeeping. A filled root seems to be a favorite spot to start a new colony.
One of the things that makes this difficult to understand is that large, relatively harmless bacteria common to the mouth, change and adapt to new conditions. They shrink in size to fit the cramped quarters and even learn how to exist (and thrive!) on very little food. Those that need oxygen mutate and become able to get along without it. In the process of adaptation these formerly friendly "normal" organisms become pathogenic (capable of producing disease) and more virulent (stronger) and they produce much more potent toxins.
All of the "building up" done to try to enhance the patient's ability to fight infections - to strengthen their immune system - is only a holding action. Many patients won't be well until the source of infection - the root canal tooth - is removed
