A. It is my opinion that the majority of root canal treatments done today, with vision enhanced by microscope are clinically successful. Some experts believe that all root canal teeth are toxic and should be removed for optimal health. The dead tooth is like leaving a cadaver inside the body. I have held removed teeth in my surgical glove treated with seemingly successfully root canal treatments that smelled bad and were stained with bacterial activity. Such teeth create much immune distress. With anguish I have removed other root canal teeth that were pristine, pure and strategic for comfort and function. We have reversed cancer in one person who kept his ten root canals. There are new diagnostic tests that hold promise of helping differentiate between adequate and harmful root canal teeth. I have also been credited with ‘curing’ shoulder or knee bursitis three times by removing infected teeth and once by performing a root canal treatment on an infected tooth."
I have several root canals myself and as long as I take good care with the oil pulling etc. they give me no problems. There are also dietary measures such as vitamin C and MSM that help to detox them. Also check out the products at calciumtherapy.com. If we keep our jawbones strong, the spread of toxins will be much less.
