Learn More about Holistic Dentistry
There has been a lot of controversy over the last decade or two about root canals. The disagreement is usually between dentists and root canal specialists (endodontists) on one side and alternative practitioners, like naturapaths, Integrative M.D.’s and chiropractors on the other. Dentists and endodontists almost always recommend saving the tooth. Alternative doctors usually land on the side of extracting the tooth.
Have you put off doing the dental work you need because you are afraid it might fail? You may have had the right idea! Have you heard that all root canals are bad for you? Or that a titanium implant blocks the meridian flow, or can corrode because of the acids in your mouth? Or that extractions are bad for you because they might lead to cavitations or dry sockets? In fact, all the above are possible. If you are immune compromised in any way, pay attention, because what you are going to learn here can make a difference between success and failure when it comes to dental surgery of any kind, whether it be root canals, implants, extractions or even gum procedures like deep cleanings.
Root Canal vs Extraction: Are Root Canals Toxic to My Body? A Review of Weston Price’s Research 100 years later
Did Dr. Price have it right when he put out his research on infected root canals and the focal infection theory nearly 100 years ago? Over the next few weeks, I will be reviewing the seminal work on root canals and how they affect systemic health. I’m often asked by my patients whether it’s better to get a root canal vs an extraction. I will be attempting to answer this question by taking a deep dive into the research. However, I will not just be looking at one side of the issue. I will be looking at it from all angles and summarizing what opposing sides have to say about this hotly contested subject within dentistry vs alternative health world. Needless to say, opinions vary wildly from one extreme to the other.
