I have just been to see a new dentist today, who preaches non-amalgam fillings which is something I value as I am into alternative medicine.
He has advised me to have a root canal, which I am rather sceptical about. I have done a lot of reading from Weston A Price’s findings over the years and he strongly doesn’t advocate a root canal as in essence the tooth is left dead. He mentions that, even though the main canal is treated and sterilised, all the other tubes and canals are close to impossible to sterilise in the one sitting a dentist would perform in a standard ‘root canal’ treatment. Therefore, when the procedure is performed and the tooth is left dead, it can harbour all types of bacteria, presenting multiple diseases and problems to the body.
My question would be, do you advocate any other form of treatment (i.e. ozone injections) that could potentially save the tooth? Or would you agree with extraction? If so, as I value my teeth, I wouldn’t feel overly comfortable in having a missing tooth. What could be done then, if an extraction was to take place? Implant? Bridge? Would these be free of metal? Thanks in advance.
