We were taught to brush our teeth twice a day, floss, and visit the dentist to prevent cavities, but the staggering number of cavities, crowns, root canals, and extracted teeth confirms that something is wrong. While there are countless periodontal promises ranging from fluoride floss to mint mouthwash, tooth decay is more prevalent today than in any previous century. Pulled and bleeding gums are the norm. Unexpected cavities form and millions of root canals are performed. The insanity definition of doing the same thing and expecting different results applies to our current state of dental care.
The mouth is the main access door to our body; it interacts with our world, absorbing and assimilating it. The endocrine, immune and digestive systems are closely linked to the microbiome of our mouth. By understanding the human microbiome, we understand that our health depends on a thriving microbiome; And as human hosts to this bacterial feast, bacterial balance is key to the vitality of our bodies and mouths.
What we now know is that many of the periodontal procedures and medications used in modern dentistry destroy the beneficial bacteria in our gums and transform the microbes in our mouth. Instead, we have to put up with our bacterial community. We must abandon the products, practices and antibiotics that mutate our microbes, stain our teeth and destroy the flora of our oral ecology.
This is the triple threat to our mouth: harmful dental procedures, misinterpretation of the dentin fluid that nourishes teeth, and a scorched earth policy regarding periodontitis bacteria. This trio is the perfect periodontal storm promoting endodontic entropy, tooth decay, and a system that accepts whitening solutions, gum grafts, veneers, and fillings.
HARMFUL DENTAL PROCEDURES
Now let's look at some of the most common dental procedures and why they can be problematic.
Silver-colored dental amalgams have been used to fill cavities for over 150 years. They are made of a combination of silver, copper, tin, and mercury. These fillers are cheaper and more durable than other filler materials.
Why bother with fillers?
Dentists must drill into healthy bone to prepare the tooth for silver fillings. Dating back to the 18th century, these dental solutions contain 50% mercury, one of the most toxic substances in the world. Although this toxicity is a scientific fact, mercury is implanted in countless mouths in the form of fillings. It is also a cumulative toxin that crosses the blood-brain and placental barriers. It binds tenaciously to tissues and disrupts DNA, nerves, cell membranes, and mitochondrial function. Mercury toxicity has been linked to dementia, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease, and other degenerative diseases.[i] Mercury has also been linked to periodontal disease, receding gums, and skin hyperpigmentation. [ii]
The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) states that the greatest exposure of the body to chronic mercury poisoning comes from silver fillings. Additionally, disposal of mercury fillings is considered a toxic waste by the EPA even when there is no metallurgical alteration of the mercury, and fillings must be handled with a strict no-contact protocol to protect dentists and the environment from mercury poisoning. . [iii] The FDA states: "One person with four fills has enough mercury to make a 20-acre lake unfit for fishing." it is not yet universally prohibited in dentistry.
Both old and new mercury fillings emit vapors 24 hours a day, with a 500% increase when chewing, grinding teeth and drinking hot liquids. According to the Journal of Dental Research, chewing gum significantly increases the release of mercury vapor! [v]
This third set of molars usually develops in the late teens and early 20s. These teeth are best extracted as a prophylactic measure to avoid impacted teeth, and partially erupted wisdom teeth can be difficult to clean or affect adjacent teeth.
Reckless to take away wisdom
Some researchers are beginning to question whether it is advisable to extract molars, which we will need as chewing surfaces later in life. A report published in the American Journal of Public Health found that 6.7 million out of 10 million preventive wisdom tooth extractions are unnecessary. 🇧🇷 There is insufficient evidence that impacted wisdom teeth cause problems, and the costs and risks of surgery are not justified.[vii] Additionally, removal of wisdom teeth also alters the structure of the neck, jaw, and the mouth and can change the shape of the face
But that is not all. Multiple pathological bacteria in the jaw are often found at wisdom tooth extraction sites. This is because it is standard protocol to leave the periodontal band smooth after extraction. This ligament remnant creates a sluggish area in the bone marrow where virulent bacteria accumulate and feed on the jaw, causing cavitation.[viii]
These cavitations in the jaw are a hidden consequence of the extraction of the wisdom teeth, since they do not usually present visible symptoms. By the time an x-ray shows a fossa in the mandible, 50 percent of the bone has already eroded away.[ix] These areas of the jaw are known medically as osteonecrotic lesions. Dr. Hal Huggins' research institute revealed that these jaw cavitation sites are harborages for serious pathogens that can lead to a variety of autoimmune diseases.
Biological dentists can check for cavities by making a small incision in the gum at the extraction site and examining the jawbone for soft pockets. If decay is present, it can be removed by a simple procedure: opening the site, scraping the cavity from the bone, completely removing the bacteria, restoring blood flow to the area, and treating the site with ozone. If you need to remove a tooth, including a wisdom tooth, be sure to work with a dentist who will also remove the periodontal ligament as part of the protocol.
Thanks to dedicated research by dentists Weston Price[x] and Ralph R. Steinman[xi], we now know that proper nutrition is key to preserving wisdom teeth. When the jawbone is properly nourished during pregnancy and childhood, the thirty-two teeth have enough room in the mouth without crowding.
A root canal is a procedure for infected teeth that kills the tooth by removing its internal structure, including the nerves, pulp tissue, and blood vessels. The excavated tooth is rinsed, filled with latex and cement, and then covered with a crown. The purpose of a root canal is to hermetically seal the tooth and protect the occlusal surface.
Plumbing Clinic Dismay
In theory, a root canal sounds like a good idea, but clinically it's a bacterial horror story. The whole goal of a root canal is to have a sterile, infection-free tooth; but the exact opposite occurs. After a root canal, the dead tooth remains in the mouth as an incubator for infection, a breeding ground for bacteria, and a necrotic nest for pathogens to grow and spread. Each tooth contains five kilometers of microscopic dentinal tubules that cannot be sterilized. When blood vessels are removed, antibiotics and white blood cells cannot reach the site to fight the infection. Every time a root canal tooth is used for chewing, bacterial toxins are injected into the bloodstream. These toxins, flowing from anaerobic infection, spread silently to the gums, ligaments, and jawbone. Because nerve tissue is removed during the procedure, there is no pain to indicate infection.[xii]
Stuart Nunnally, MD, a pioneering and respected biological dentist, conducted independent testing of root canal teeth. [xiii] To qualify, the teeth had to be free of symptoms and show no signs of pathology on an x-ray. One hundred percent of these root canal teeth were perfect root canals based on surface and X-ray examination, but laboratory tests showed that the teeth contained serious toxic pathogens. Fortunately, although this type of information has not permeated all dental practices, and with knowledge comes some ethical decisions for dentists about how to manage diseased teeth, there is lively discussion in endodontic journals about the impossibility of sterility of teeth. root canal teeth. 🇧🇷
If you have a root canal and this information is concerning, it is important to know that while root canals become focal infections that feed on 100 percent anaerobic bacteria, not all root canals cause systemic health problems due to individual epigenetics and why each person's leaves treat toxicity differently. If your health is deteriorating (especially in the months leading up to the procedure) or if you have an autoimmune problem, you should consider tooth extraction with root canal treatment and periodontal band removal. This is an easier decision for a posterior tooth, as the space can be left as is, but a more difficult decision with an anterior tooth, as you may need to look at a bridge or post-implant zirconia tooth. Titanium posts are commonly used, although they can deposit alloys and ions into surrounding tissue, which can lead to inflammation, bone loss, and implant failure.
Fortunately, some dentists are questioning these methods and there are new frontiers in dentistry that can help us correct the damage from decades of dental procedures. Some biologic dentists use platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy to stimulate growth factors and ozone injections and gels to kill off infection and provide a "breath of fresh air" to surgical sites. These dentists are also leaders in selecting the most biocompatible materials. Future. It takes a lot of care to find a good dentist - get informedWhat questions should you ask a dentist before making an appointment?
THE INVISIBLE TOOTHBRUSH
The teeth are nourished by the dentinal lymphatic system through their roots. The lymphatic-dentinal flow is a toroidal system; Lymphatic fluid swirls in and up in the center of the tooth, the pulp chamber. It flows through the tooth and into the enamel. This microscopic flow of fluid on the teeth originates near the intestinal tract and flows up and out through the teeth in the form of microscopic sweat, releasing toxins, providing nutrients to the mineral matrix of the teeth, and removing a microbial biofilm on the teeth. the surfaces of the teeth, thus preventing the teeth from becoming deformed. decay cavities and gum disease.
When properly metabolized and functional, this dentolymphatic secretion acts like an invisible toothbrush, preventing systemic caries, inhibiting the entry of pathogens, and neutralizing acids on the tooth surface. However, this lymphodentinal flow can stagnate and even be completely reversed. Certain chemicals and medications, as well as a diet high in processed foods, sugar, and carbohydrates that raise insulin levels and disrupt hormones, cause the dentinal lymphatic system to go into reverse. When this happens, the capillaries of the tooth absorb bacteria like straw, causing infection and biofilm formation in the pulp chamber and dentinal tubules. This self-contaminating system causes a "leaky tooth" and is the source of dental caries.
Dental caries is an infection in the tooth. Like all wounds, it has the ability to heal. The teeth are alive! The current condition of your teeth and mouth may change. Physician Ralph R. Steinman, the same dentist who scientifically demonstrated the existence of the dentinal lymphatic system,[xv] demonstrated that the inclusion of magnesium and phosphorus in the diet reduced the rate of dental caries by 86%.[xvi] Dr. Melvin Page confirmed this by noting that cavities form when blood phosphate levels drop below 3.5.[xvii] Additionally, former ADA President Dr. Weston Price concluded that the fat-soluble vitamins K2 and D3 reverse and inhibit dental caries. Fillings are plaster solutions and are prone to recurrent tooth decay. However, when the underlying causes of dental caries are addressed and lymphatic flow to the dentin is restored, teeth remineralize and become more resistant to future caries.
A MICROBIAN MENAGERIE FROM THE MOUTH
There are more bacteria in a kiss than people on earth. Our mouth is a microbial zoo. As holobiotic human hosts for these microbes, we have forged an elaborate evolutionary and ancient alliance. A good host provides plant friends with a stable, loving home and nutritious food. In turn, these microbes control our bodies by digesting food and secreting beneficial biochemicals. They are also conscious sentinels that boost our immunity while preventing pathogenic periodontal invaders from multiplying and excreting endotoxins and colonizing the community.
The key to oral health is maintaining a diverse and ecologically balanced microbiome. Instead, we fell into the biobombard scum: we practiced a scorched-earth policy on periodontal care. chemicals in teeth whitening, fillings, rinses, and fluoride; soapy surfactants in toothpastes; antibiotic nuclear bombs on bacteria; chewing foods that contain glyphosate and pesticides; root canals focal purulent infections; the metallic mass of mercury, titanium, and nickel, all of which burned away the collective intelligence of our oral habitat.
Just as toxic foods and chemical irritants cause leaky gut through a microscopic puncture of the intestine, rubbing and scrubbing the gums with mutant drugs and harsh chemicals causes leaky gums. Bacteria in our mouths don't normally enter the bloodstream, but dental procedures and products can puncture the epithelium, the skin of the mouth, which is only one cell thick, creating a gateway to the bloodstream. When the bacteria and plaque that cause cavities and gum disease enter our circulatory system, they trigger an inflammatory cascade that releases cytokines and C-reactive proteins.
Healthy mouths contain a population of pathogens; The good balance is that the good bacteria far outnumber the bad. Pathogens normally exist in a free-floating planktonic state in our body's ecosystem. But as they increase in numbers, they can gain strength through communication, allowing them to colonize a biofilm. Under healthy conditions, an oral-ecological bacterial balance maintains healthy and stable biofilms.
Plaque is an ideal nest for germs, so we need strategies to inhibit bacterial communication that creates biofilms but balances bacteria rather than destroys the microbiome. In several studies, essential oils such as cinnamon, peppermint, tea tree, frankincense, and clove have shown promising results. In one study, clove oil decreased bacterial activity by up to 70 percent! [xviii] These essential oils indicate anti-infective activity that can coexist with our flora while purging periodontal pathogens. We now have scientific studies confirming the ancient wisdom of using botanical biotics to maintain oral ecology.
INCREASE ORAL ECOLOGY: STOP, SEAL AND SEED
A few updates to your oral health and hygiene routines can improve your oral health and invest in your innate immunity.
Stop daily and eating habits that affect healthy oral ecology. Every improvement you make to your mouth also benefits the well-being of your body.
•Stop eating endocrine inhibitorsfrom processed foods, sugar, gluten, corn, and irritating glyphosate
•Suspend the consumption of phytic acid.Phytic acid is an antinutrient that robs the body of phosphorus stores. Soak and ferment gluten-free grains, legumes, and nuts to reduce this antinutrient.
•Stop Blood Sugar Spikes:Keep your blood sugar level around 80.
•Stop breathing through your mouth.
•stop mutant microbesantibiotics, glyphosate, surfactants and toothpastes with too much fluoride.
•Remove mercury fillings.For your safety and the dentist's safety, be sure to consult a qualified biological dentist who follows the Hal Huggins Institute extraction procedures.
•Stop using synthetic products.If toothpaste is the magic cleaner for our teeth, why are cavities on the rise and why does toothpaste carry a big warning: "May be harmful if swallowed"? [xix] Best to be an oral health stickler and groom yourself carefully with a toothbrush and some salt or baking soda and a pure vegetable whey... and they're pretty safe to swallow!
Bleeding, inflamed, and receding gums are indicators of a bacterial imbalance and that bacteria are entering the bloodstream. Restore the integrity of the oral epithelium by sealing leaking gums.

seal the bowelswith diet, herbs and probiotics for optimal oral intake. Our teeth are connected to all the organs and glands through the bloodstream. Any infection that harbors the mouth, all the metals and toxins in our mouth affect our overall health.
Oral alkalizing agentsBased on sodium bicarbonate, sea salt and magnesium, they are soothing in mouthwashes and effective as toothpastes due to their alkalizing exfoliating action that gently removes plaque. Healthy saliva, a sea of saline alkalinity, contains chemicals and enzymes that exist solely to care for your teeth. If saliva is too acidic, it dissolves tooth enamel and creates a breeding ground for bacteria. With tooth decay, saliva enters to coat the tooth in its beautiful healing fluid. The quality and quantity of saliva also depends on hydration, so drink up!
Paul H. Keyes, DDS, a clinical investigator at the National Institute for Dental Research, advised regular brushing with baking soda, as it prevents all destructive periodontal diseases. [xx] It is also significantly less abrasive than cleaning agents used on lime and silica.commercial toothpastes.

Boca Swisher, (also known as oil pulling or oil pulling) is an ancient Ayurvedic healing practice to detoxify the mouth, teeth, gums and the entire oral cavity. A small number of studies have been conducted on the use of the oil and its effects on bad breath and oral health. The researchers concluded that the use of oil can kill the bacteria that cause oral problems.[xxi]
It is best to rub the oil in first thing in the morning before eating or drinking. Measure about twenty drops of coconut or MCT oil and two drops of an essential oil orHappy Gum Drops + Serum Oil Serumand swish it in your mouth for up to fifteen minutes, then spit it out into a trash can to protect your whistles.

These fat-soluble vitamins nourish dentin and ensure bright white teeth. Remove plaque, which can be stained by food pigments, with 1/2 teaspoon of 3% hydrogen peroxide mixed with 1 teaspoon of baking soda on a dry electric toothbrush once or twice a month.
Botanical-BioticThe aromatic compounds of essential oils act as bacteriostatic regenerators of the microbiome and as biofilm disruptors. They are effective in reducing biofilm formation, particularly biofilms formed by S. mutans. In research, cinnamon essential oil has shown the unique ability to penetrate pathogenic biofilms to kill bacteria. [xiii]

With microbial diversity depleting, we need to build our oral bacteria bank account and finance it with investments in diverse flora.
prebiotics and probiotics
Prebiotics and probiotics are microbial multipliers. A combination of probiotics and dairy products has been found to reduce cavities and periodontal bacteria in the mouth. Giving children Lactobacillus reuteri from their last trimester to their first birthday has been found to reduce dental caries by age nine. It can also help heal damaged gums and gingivitis.[xxiii]
Successful experience in some dental offices has used a mixture of probiotics after scaling and root planing called guided pocket recolonization.[xxiv] This can be done safely and easily at home with a blunt syringe mixed with a mixture of probiotics. and an oil carrier like an MCT.
Preparing for an appointment with the dentist
When we go to the dentist, there are steps we can take before going to prepare our mouths, our health, and our immune systems for this type of procedure. Prepare depending on your general oral health or what the dentist is going to dowith the following Eight easy steps to successful dentistryfor 3 weeks to 3 months before your appointment is essential.
Preparing the microbiome and immune system of the mouth in advance will make your appointment more successful, likely less expensive, and result in smoother immunological results. Preparing for an appointment can seem daunting, but it's important because after a deep peel by a hygienist, oral bacteria are released and flow into the bloodstream, challenging the immune system. The body responds to this perceived attack by releasing white blood cells to fight invading microbes, and one result is systemic inflammation. Therefore, blood should not be donated until 48 hours after a dental cleaning, as the blood is likely to be full of bacteria.
Start with the classic immune boosters: vitamin D from the sun, iodine, NAC, and glutathione. Also, add 1,000 to 2,000 mg of vitamin C per day depending on your tolerance and gut health. If you're going to the dentist for more serious work than a cleaning, keep in mind that taking vitamin C by mouth reduces the numbing effect of the novocaine and anesthetic.
peptideare precise and practical options for periodontal treatment. Peptides are natural regulatory signaling cells that promote the body's healing system.
There is a trio of peptides that I consider essential to all aspects of oral hygiene: thymosin alfa-on, BHP-157, and thymosin β4.
Timosina alfa-onIt is the immune superhero and is ideal for before and after dental visits, extractions, cavitation cleanings and minor procedures. Research shows that TA1 modulates the immune system by increasing T cell function (T cells are important in the immune system) and regaining control of cytokines that have "invaded" and attacked the body instead of strengthening immunity.
BPC-157seals and heals tissues, gums and intestines. BPC is a complex composition of 15 amino acids found in human gastric juice. It plays an important role in the healing of various wounds, and researchers believe that it can help cure periodontitis. When administered to mice with periodontitis, their oral health improved to such an extent that the scientists concluded that "BPC 157 may represent a new candidate peptide in the treatment of periodontitis." [xxv] It works in multiple ways in the nucleus, directing the silencing of genes that perpetuate inflammation and promoting genes that control repair of blood vessels, connective tissue, fascia, and nerves.
Cutting-edge biologic dentists are finding success with this revolutionary, highly specific peptide protocol including BPC-157 for gingival recession. Please inform your holistic dentist about this protocol in advance. Dentists can contact the International Peptide Society for more information.
Here is the log:
• Dilute BPC-157 (5mg bottle of peptide powder) with 1ml 0.9% NaCl (do not dilute with regular bacteriostatic water as it is too painful for gingival injections). Note: NaCl causes a suspension effect and you will see suspensions of particles with this reconstitution.
• Apply a drop of Organic Peppermint Essential Oil to the gums/injection site to clean and provide a mild anesthetic.
• Inject 0.25 ml into the receding gum area using smaller serrated needles (4 injections in total: two in the upper gum tissue, two in the lower area).
• Repeat the protocol at 3 weeks.
• Display. Repeat a third time if necessary.
• Measure gum pockets before and after.
• The effect can be visible in 10 days.
BPC is also available in powdered form (which is rare for a peptide), and this powder can be added to baking soda to make pastes (see below) and dental masks. It is also an amazing addition to oil drilling.
Thymosin β4 occurs naturally in the human body as a general repair molecule, particularly for soft tissue repair. It is a hormone secreted by the thymus gland that calms inflammation, stimulates T-cell production, and is released by platelets at the site of injury to trigger the cascade of healing activities. Thymosin also aids in the development of B cells into plasma cells to produce antibodies. Accelerates skin healing in preclinical animal models and in patients. Build bone health.
Use these three peptides subcutaneously in the months leading up to your appointment, then concentrate dose before and after appointments, deep cleanings, dental surgeries, and extractions.
Our bodies are brilliantly designed! If we multiply the microbiome in our mouth and activate our invisible toothbrush, eliminating what hinders our body's innate function, the external care of brushing and flossing becomes very easy because our teeth are alive and will respond to anything! our effort! The current state of our mouth can evolve as tooth enamel is restored, dentin is reactivated, saliva is remineralized, and gums are rejuvenated.
Lots of buzzing bacteria can keep the dentist away.
