Nearly 60 million root canals were performed one (1) year, in individuals who are mistakenly informed that it is an insurance and harmless procedure. While your teeth can look and feel good after the procedure, the reality is that it is impossible for all bacteria to be removed from the tooth. After a root canal, healthy bacteria changes highly toxic, anaerobic bacteria that will continue to thrive in and around the tooth causing numerous health problems.
BASIC ANATOMY OF THE TEETH
A tooth has several layers, the enamel is the outer layer, the second layer is that of the dentin and the inner core is the pulp. Tiny fibers that leave the tooth and are intertwined with fibers from the bones, and that join to form what is called the periodontal ligament. The dentin, the layer is not solid, but in reality is composed of tiny dentinal tubules, which if extended would be about three kilometers long. This is an excellent place for bacteria to hide and develop.
THE BACTERIA THAT ARE COMMONLY IN THE ROOT CHANNELS
The ADA may claim that bacteria found in teeth with root canals cannot cause disease, but the bacteria that are in nerve treatment of teeth are not the same normal bacteria in the mouth. Without oxygen and nutrients, the friendly bacteria are often highly toxic, capable of causing long-term infections, loss of jaw and numerous diseases.
C inco of the major species of bacteria (of the fifty- three, which is commonly found in the root canal of the teeth)
1.- Capnocytophaga ochracea : Found in the brain of dental abscesses associated with the source of infection . Causing human disease in the central nervous system . Also related to septicemia and meningitis .
2.- Fusobacterium nucleatum : It produces toxins that inhibit fibroblasts from cell division and wound healing processes . Causing infection in the heart , joints , liver and spleen .
3.- Gemella morbillorum : in relation to invasive acute endocarditis , septic arthritis and meningitis .
4.- Leptotrichia buccalis : Reduces the number of neutrophils ( an important white blood cell ), which reduces the capacity of the immune system.
- Porphyromonas gingivalis: It destroys the red blood cells through the perforation holes ( porinas ) in them , causing the cell to bleed to death .
