I have a toothache in my bottom molar, no 6 on my left. I assumend something was rotten and rushed off to the dentist. He checked it out carefully, and found nothing wrong. He X-rayed the tooth, the root from both sides, and said there was nothing wrong. He found a lot of plaque on the inside of my bottom teeth and especially on the sore one. He said he thought that the tooth was reacting supsiciously to the plaque. We had it removed by th oral hygienist. Now the plaque is gone, and the tooth is still sore. It is sensitive to pressure, hot and cold liquids. It is not excruciating, and it doesn’t seem to get worse. It just stays like that. I’ts been more than a month.
A friend said that one’s teeth are linked to certain organs, and apparently, that tooth is linked to the spleen or the stomach – she said it is on the same “meridian”, so if there is nothing wrong with the tooth, it might be that there is something wrong with the spleen. I would appreciate your comments on this, or how to proceed from here.
If the dentist didn’t find anything wrong, and I paid through my neck for the appointment, I can’t imagine going back. What more can he do than all the Xrays etc.?
