The ONLY Healthy Alternative to Root CanalsPosted on March 25, 2012 by 1healthcoach
Root Canals — Part II
We regret that we must present this evidence-based understanding shared by a growing number of dentists and ex-endodontists, but it is the truth as written by Dr. George Meinig, D.D.S. in his book Root Canal Coverup.
For those who harbor any doubts regarding the following presentation, please read Dr. Meinig’s book. He was a founding member of the American Association of Endodontics (Root Canal Specialists), and he has thoroughly delved into the scientific research demonstrating the dangers of root canal ‘therapy’. If you are considering a root canal, this book may very well save your life; it did ours!
Also, we advise that you read the previous expose posted at this site and linked below:
For many the question still remains: “You really mean that there is no healthy alternative to a root canal except tooth extraction?”
Answer: That’s entirely correct, given the state of the art.
Furthermore, we’re compelled to emphasize again that the oral surgery which is conducted to extract the tooth ought to adhere strictly to the surgical protocols developed by Dr. George Meinig and his collaborating dentists. Why is this so important?
Because in many instances the tooth has been in an infected state for weeks, months, years or decades. When this is the case, the jawbone surrounding the tooth can easily become infected as well, setting up lifelong, subclinical, focal infections as discussed in Root Canals — Part I.
This is another extremely compelling reason why tooth extraction is the ONLY good alternative in this scenario. The ONLY one.
Now, many may want to ask one more time: “You mean there’s only one choice and that is to pull the tooth?!”
We didn’t say, “Pull the tooth.” We said properly extract it utilizing the best surgical protocols developed to date by those professional dental authorities who know what they’re doing. There is a very significant distinction that we’re making here, for very important health considerations and with long term repercussions. So, if you are confronted with these choices, please do the reading especially at the Weston Price Foundation site and Dr. Hal Huggins, D.D.S websites and you’ll do just fine.
Oh, yes, one last point. We have previously underscored in our last “Root Canal session” that this alternative also applies to all currently root-canaled teeth in the mouth. In those cases, we are dealing with the added possibility of tooth roots that have cracked which then allow for the filling material to migrate into the jawbone creating a potential cocktail of toxicities. This is a predicament you do not want to have to deal with. The Health Coach did and it was not a pretty picture.
Stay tuned for Part III in which we will further discuss both the removable partial and the nesbit, both excellent ways of filling in the gaps.
With every good wish,
