Did you know that root canals can have untold, negative effects on your health? People are slowly discovering the hidden dangers of root canals as more medical professionals speak out about their dangers. Here is what you need to know.
Dr. George Meinig, author of Root Canal Cover Up, said it best when he quoted Dr. Weston A. Price as follows:
“… when infected teeth produce disturbance in other parts of the body, it is not necessary that the quantity of infection be large, nor is it demonstrated that it is necessary that organisms pass throughout the body or to the special tissues involved, but the evidence at hand strongly suggests that soluble poisons may pass from the infected teeth to the lymph or blood circulation, or both, and produce system disturbance entirely out of proportion to the quantity involved.
The evidence indicates that toxic substances may under certain circumstances sensitize the body or special tissues so that very small quantities of the organisms, which produce the toxin, may produce very marked reactions and disturbances.” (Source: Root Canal Teeth and Cavitations by Lowell Weiner DDS, FAGD)
This quote may be long and sound complex; however, it speaks directly to why root canals should be avoided. Whenever a tooth is root canaled it sets up a situation that is identical to the one described above.
Harmful substances are produced by the infected root canaled tooth which can have serious effects on constitutional health. When these infections and their circulating toxins occur unchecked for prolonged periods of time, systemic damage often results.
Because a root-canaled tooth is essentially killed in the process, the human body is designed to reject the dead tooth just as it would reject any dead organ or tissue. For this reason, virtually every tooth with a root canal becomes the victim of a low grade focal infection. Because the often imperceptible symptoms associated with them are usually subclinical in nature, the individual may suffer for years, or even decades, completely unaware of the infection.
They are called focal infections because they constitute “an infection in which bacteria are localized in some region, as the tonsils or the tissue around a tooth, from which they may spread to some other organ or structure of the body”. 
Even tooth sockets in which root canals once existed are vulnerable to focal infections. When the root canaled tooth is not properly extracted and the roots are left in the jaw bone or the periodontal ligament is not completely removed, there exists a quite conducive environment for focal infections to thrive.
When left to evolve unaddressed, a dynamic is frequently set into motion whereby the focal infection will travel via the blood stream or lymphatic system. In this way, specific organs or tissues are targeted which are then weakened considerably over time.
Many a heart attack or stroke, kidney failure or liver dysfunction has actually been caused by these types of focal infections in the mouth. Because they so often go undetected by the dentists, as well as undiagnosed by physicians, these infections serve to profoundly undermine the health of the unsuspecting.
What else makes root canals and old cavitation sites so dangerous?
The longer an infected root canal or cavitation site goes unaddressed, the greater the likelihood that it will develop into a full-blown infection. However, it is what typically occurs during the low grade infection stage that does the most to injure various internal organs and/or organs systems.
The focal infections which develop in compromised teeth and cavitation sites target different parts of the body. Some researchers call these signature points which are vulnerable organs and/or tissues which can ultimately be weakened to the point of organ failure.
Other investigators have postulated that the specific meridian of the concerned tooth socket will determine the affected part of the body. Each meridian correlates directly with a different part of the body as the chart that follows indicates.
Root canals ought to be avoided by every means possible. That often means that a seriously ailing or irreparably damaged tooth must be extracted. Unfortunately, a properly executed extraction is usually the only healthy resolution unless the tooth can be brought back to a satisfactory condition without a root canal.
The longer that root canals sit in the mouth, the greater the likelihood that health issues and medical conditions will develop. As the immune system becomes over-taxed by having to address any number of focal infections in the mouth, ultimately the individual can experience different types of auto-immune illness.
In light of these unfavorable realities, it should be clear that the only good root canal is the one that is never performed.

This is not theory, it is real. It is also not just root canals. In my case it was a tooth that had many problems. I lost the use of my arm, the muscles in my shoulder knotted up huge and my shoulder blade was lifted a good six inches higher than the other, and the pain was off the charts as everything was frozen, the joints were swollen in my clavicle and shoulder to ten times their normal size and were in slow motion dislocation.
It went on for years, i went to dozens of doctors, and I was on death’s door and no one knew what was going on. Finally after about seven years I read a book called the New Arthritis Cure by Dr. Bruce Fife and it saved my life and sanity literally.
The tooth in question did not have a root canal but rather a few problems. One problem was it was unusually large molar that didn’t fit in my mouth well with the other teeth. The main problem however was this tooth had a opening at the gum line next to the tooth and food stuff went down in this opening. I knew it was a problem that bugged me but dentists never seemed to see it or see it as a problem. At some point the tooth got overly aggravated and I begin grinding my teeth at night and finally cracked the tooth from one side to the other. Still dentists weren’t concern.
Then one day I lifted my arm and I was hit with a pain that made me hit the floor to my knees. The swelling was instant and so was my frozen shoulder. The site of the tooth didn’t hurt. The tooth was always in a bad state and kinda of tender my whole life so a little pain in the sight was normal to me As my shoulder got worse the pain was horrible. For a few years I could hardly walk. I was disabled. My life ground to a halt and I couldn’t do anything but sit around on massive painkillers.
The way I figured it out. … After about 7 years of being disabled it started to get better. Not a hundred percent but somewhat. I think I may have gotten a new filling in the tooth at one point. Still didn’t know it was this tooth but got a filling there because I needed it. This tooth had been filled and refilled about 8 times over my entire life. It was still cracked and that was never fixed. Dentists weren’t concerned. At this point I wasn’t working because i was so sick and had no money and no insurance. I decided to clean my own teeth with a hook I bought. I put that hook down the opening and pulled out chunks of stuff that was wedged in. When I did that my jaw and the tooth became severely infected. I got the book mentioned above about the same time and started putting it together.
I went to the poor people’s clinic and had the tooth pulled. The dentist tried to talk me out of pulling it saying it could be saved with a root canal but I said “no, pull it.” My ordeal was over in about three months. After a decade of serious suffering I found the cause. This is no joke and Im not mistaken. I knew instantly when that tooth came out i was going to heal and could feel a level of stress leave my body in hours.
Dentists are not physicians;they hardly ever use antibiotics.Many solutions they use(drilling from the top only),would be handled differently if an orthopedic surgeon had been in charge since long ago.
I saw orthopedic surgeons, Many!! but they diagnosed me with degenerative joint disease. They simply never put it together. They sent me to physical therapy which was literally like pure torture. I spent all my money going to doctors until I finally lay to ill to work or pay for insurance. I tried everything.
I hear this advice to avoid root canals a lot, which is great and all, but what about people who already have them and are being harmed by them? Nobody says anything about those cases. Can the situation be reversed or anything? Can a root canal be removed or treated for infection? Or do those people simply have to suffer through the rest of their lives with problematic root canals?
Conspiracy theorists always seem a little unbalanced.
Are you following me around now for no reason other than to bother me, little kitty? Talk about unbalanced….. Why don’t you answer the questions I’ve asked of you in that other article before you go engaging me in conversation in additional articles. It doesn’t seem like you can manage that much so I’m not sure why you bothered. I can only figure that you *really* don’t have a life.
Awwww…my crazy stalker really, rrrreeeeaaalllly loves me…oh goodie.
What’s wrong, kitty? One lame and childish comment wasn’t enough for you to write? You had to leave two? ROFLMAO.
STtttttttiiiiilllllll a stalker! You go girrrrrrrllll!
Do you have anything to say about the topic of root canals? Because if you don’t then there’s no reason for you to have started commenting to this article.

Still yapping? Like a small dog….yet again….
I didn’t think so….
…and again and again…
Take a pill, poor man.
Stalker trolls are such odd people. NO friends. No jobs, no family, no lives…tsk tsk…
Your comment is 7 yrs old, but others might find it when looking for an answer so I will reply for them. I’m not sure if you can check for problems in old root canals with xray, but I had my removed as a preventative. Find a biological dentist to remove them correctly. Take care of your teeth (flossing, oil pulling, eating well, read Weston Price, Ramiel Nagel) and avoid future problems. Also remove and avoid mercury fillings (I do not go to dentists that still place them in others mouths as their office could very well be contaminated). And to Kitten if she/he should read this, I don’t consider myself a conspiracy theorist, but like to learn as much as I can from all sides so I can make my own informed decisions instead of trusting blindly, which sounds more unbalanced.
Nice story without any real facts. We can find such stories with any part of our body, let alone organs. Its just a scare or Root Canal Treatment phobia. Dentists do maintain all protocols of infection control as in any other field of medicine and surgery. Such exceptional MAYBE cases are rare, negligible and not countable. There are millions and millions of root canaled teeth in people who are perfectly well.
but are they really well? or just lower levels of sickness that they ignore. Maybe not scientific facts since all people are different (some react more strongly than others), but enough of a coincidence that has happened to several people that there seems to be some strong correlation. Some of us have been cured of severe mysterious conditions when root canals and/or mercury fillings are removed, and recover from years of symptoms no one could figure out a cause. I had root canals and mercury fillings. I had no energy and was put on antidepressants, though I wasn’t depressed, just desperate to be able to function again. They were actually uppers and got me through the day, though I could not sleep. So I was prescribed downers to sleep… I found out through research and did not take them, but found information on the mercury and root canals, which I had two different doctors say I had been tested for mercury and cleared. I found out later they had lied. No testing was ever done. When it was, I have elevated levels. Had all my mercury fillings removed and cavitations cleaned, and my energy came back by the next day… psychosymatic? maybe, but I’ve been well for over 15 yrs, so I will take it whatever it is! Had other symptoms that went away after about 2 months. I will avoid root canals and mercury, thank you.
