I was so sick from root canal infection the strange this is most dentist unless they are biological or holistic dentist they did seem aware that root canals can make you so sick! My symptoms flu like with nausea and blurred vision, dry eyes, light sensitivity, shakey feeling like tremors, constant sore throat, shortness of breath, wheezing,to name a few. I was sure I was headed for the grave. I will never ever have a root canals since I learned how dangerous root canals are. Apparently they all leak virulent infections, but usually the body keeps it in check then once your immunity is lowered your now a target to other illness, Anyhow, my infected root canal had infected my jaw. I saw a couple dentist they seemed unaware the third dentist extracted the root canal and discovered the infection under root canal which was NOT showing up on the xray. After that I began a series of ozone injections with my ND. I quickly learned that in order for ozone to do it's job you need all your mercury filling removed . I had all of mine removed then I found a holistic dentist that drilled into the jaw bone and inject ozone into the areas. Also ozone travels to where the infection is and it will look for infection that in and of itself is amazing
My advice regarding ozone is to find out where your threshold is, because if you get a headache,and/ or burning in your head,then you've gone over your threshold. When I first had ozone done I was careless I took 20 small injections that was way too MUCH for me it caused my head to throb and burn it was strange feeling I wasn't sure if I should go to the ER
Then I changed my approach with ozone I had the dentist start with a much lower dose and work our way up to a med. level dose and I have no side effects at all from ozone . OZONE IS the only thing that can kill infection on contact it is fast, effective and it is relatively inexpensive. Ozone is the only way to go, and the future of dentistry. I have read now that some dentist are just injecting ozone into root canaled teeth at every visit to keep the infection at bay. I of course would have every single root canal extracted and replaced with porcelain implants.
Some dentist are now using lasers on the gums and dental sites for sterlize but my dentist told me ozone was superior for killing infections and travels deeper into the tissues,.
