Seriously, I think many people are in denial about the importants of dental health. It's because of the money it takes to resolve the problems. It's best to have everything x-rayed and examined by a COMPETENT dental expert. These low level 'housed' bacteria are creating small amounts of poison that can cause chemical imbalances in the body. I would not be surprised if they could cause c-a-n-c-e-r--Not a pretty word.
I am pissed that I am spending thousands of dollars on something which should rightfully be subsidized by government. Or they could clamp down on the "dental associations" which are one of few legal monopolies that are in morally questionable waters. It is a well known fact that dental health and systemic disease are many times related.
A tooth that is sealed is in danger of trapping bacteria which can grow towards the bone. X-rays can pick this up.
I will post my findings of the culture soon. I am also looking for fungals---Shroom
