..getting tooth extracted while it is still a tooth
is far easier than having to deal with surgery
to attempt to dig out the wreckage below the gum line.
I had an eyetooth..useful, sharp fang in the upper jaw..
had a tiny hole in it. "whoa..i haz a tiny hole in
my left fang..best get around to getting the hole filled."
...umm...never mind. It just crunched into dust.
Tiny hole. Big damage. Inside..all hollowed out.
Collapsed into dust one day..like a saltine cracker under
..time passes..dentist can't do squat. Nothing to grab unto. Need an oral surgeon to cut and slice and jackhammer
the roots out..to stop feeding the bacteria and fungus.
The chronic inflammation is a constant load on the immune system.
Having legions of the immune system occupied
with trying to beat back a constant attack by pathogens
is no way to win the mOrg war. I need the white cells
elsewhere..patrolling for mOrg activity..not policing
a dead tooth. The byproducts of all that inflammation
are not doing the circulatory system or the organs any
...it also does not escape my attention that eye infections
from pathogens jumping from tooth nerves to the optic
nerves are a very real problem..[the nerves pass quite
close to each other..]
Another long tale here..best left
for another thread.
