What happened when my root-canal teeth were pulled

Can you stand one more update related to traditional dentistry versus holistic (biological) practices? It’s the last chapter in the story I told you in August.

When I had my two root-canal teeth extracted, I paid a few hundred dollars for an analysis of what bacteria were found in them. I just got my results back from the lab in Colorado.

My biological dentist told me BOTH my root-canal teeth he pulled were failing. Since then, I’ve talked to half a dozen other dentists and people who have extensive experience with root canals.

You would think that, with all the things I do right, I would have better luck than that. I confess to being more than a little disappointed that a bone graft and so much dental work would be required, notwithstanding my earlier years of eating lots of candy, ice cream, and diet soda.

But did you know that the EXPECTED time that a root canal lasts is a max of 10 years? That’s right–-endodontists KNOW that their procedure has a very limited life. My brother Dave was in an ATV accident 10 years ago, where his teeth planted in the steering wheel and killed ten of them. He had root canals on all, and guess what.

Yep, they’re all failing.

Not that those pleomorphic organisms trapped in an anaerobic environment, in a dead organ, are really contained during that 10 years anyway. They’re not! “Failing” just means that there are visible, discernible signs of rampant infection and decay. (Obviously it didn’t get that way overnight!)

In my case, the signs were mild tooth sensitivity, and a blister on the gums covering the tooth. A raging, itchy rash on my trunk and arms that came and went for 2.5 months, until I realized it was related to my teeth.

Have you ever thought about the fact that the tooth is an organ? The biological dentist knows this. It is part of an interconnected meridian in the body. When it dies—or is injured and we kill it dead and leave it there—we are truly fossilizing a dead organism in our living mouth. And we think this won’t cause problems!

So, my sample came back saying that 10 bacteria were detected in the tooth sample. None of them were in the “active” concentration, where the microorganism is alive and well and not being effectively attacked by my immune system.

But two were in the “bright” concentration, which means “heavy concentration of the microorganism.”

They were:

Campylobacter rectus
Prevotella melaninogenica

I’m not panicking about this. Fact is, everybody has candida, everybody has cancer, most people probably have strep and even MRSA micro-organisms too. Everybody has many yeasts, molds, fungi, viruses, bacteria, and the toxic waste byproducts of those critters, in our blood and gut and organs.

Believe it or not, candida can actually have valid functions in the human body. In proportion, in tiny amounts in a teeming, healthy ecosystem, it’s not a problem.

The problem is when those baddies get out of hand. When the good guys in the body, like macrophages and healthy micro-organisms, are overcome (by antibiotics! GMO-frankenfoods! Sugar feeding yeast and fungus!) and the baddies get out of control.

Killing tissues / organs such as your teeth, then trapping the bacteria in the teeth, deprived of oxygen, makes the baddies become super-psychos. That’s a gross oversimplification, but a google search on those two bacteria reveal that my own two breeds of baddies cause heart attacks, impaired immune response, and…..genital tract infections!

Shudder.

It’s weird to be missing two teeth. But I’m glad the super-psychos are gone.

The dentist had offered me an antibiotic the day of my surgery, since he knows the baddies are now out, and running around. I said no thanks, that I wanted to help my body manage it. And it did. Every time I think of this, I send a gratitude message inward, thanking my body for heroic immune function during a rough patch!

  1. I have a root canal on Molar teeth two years ago with a gold crown. It was done due to crack/chip in teeth making it weak to withstand on its own. No issue with the teeth at the time of root canal and crowning.

    But, a week before, I started getting mild pain on this teeth on biting and after couple of days got a big swelling around the gum (infection) and fever for overnight. Using home treatment, I got over the infection in 2-3days and thinking to visit the doctor. Before going, I want to understand options. My theory is, teeth might have cracked, followed with infection. But, then I feel it might be just infection no crack, because I stay high on hygiene to have infection two days after crack.

    My question to experience experts are if I get the tooth extracted, does it fixes the issues (generally) or root canal things should be removed too ( whatever is filled in the root tunnels)?

    1. Over last few days I found that my gum swelling and biting pain was not due to Root Canal. It was some kind of infected which affected my multiple area one by one. Now gum is getting over and no need to extract root canal teeth. It was false flag.

  2. I had a root canal extraction as I had throbing pain for months and had failed..I had it removed by an oral surgeon and was in pain for several days after the extraction..I did take the amoxicillin and ibuprofen given to me after the surgery but was still in excruciating pain about a week later..I had a dry socket which is just a hole with no blood clot to protect the site therefore exposing the tissue and bone and got infected..I resulted to an old remedy given to me by my wife..I was desperate and was going to try anything..it is called CLOVE OIL ..what a miracle of a product, it numbed the tissues in the extraction area and I feel killed the infection. I was OK an hour after applying it with a qtip..believe me if u have a dry socket and it hursts clove oil is the way to go..

  3. All implants are toxic, if you have any health problems do not get them. Zirconia has toxic heavy metals. Do lots of research! A bridge with no metals from a lab and dentist you trust or a partial denture is the only way to go imo. I felt great after getting my root canals pulled! I had 2 teeth pulled in 3 sessions/appointments. I experienced the greatest healing after the last ones were pulled. It is best to get them done all at once. Otherwise you must get them all done within 30 days for best results, no longer then 6 months or the results are not so great according to Huggins. And the work must not on the 7 day mark as the body has a 7 day healing cycle. So if you get the work done on Monday, then the next appointment should be done on any other day of the week and so forth. Also get an ozone machine and a shower water pic for best cleaning results. Good luck everyone! 🙂 Your health is your greatest wealth! You will quickly get used to your new mouth and can start focusing back on what is most important in your life! 🙂

    1. You are an idiot, imagine7, as all area most of the rest of you. I went to a holistic dentist by the name of Dr. Thomas (Tom) Gent of Sola Dental in Austin, TX. I’ve always had troubled teeth and he talked me out of most of them, especially the root-canaled ones. Guess what? I didn’t feel any better afterwards, and because he failed so miserably at extractions and implants, I ended up with holes all over my jaw and was disfigured and unable to chew for 18 months. He has been under investigation for over a year with the state dental board and we’re into a lawsuit for my injuries. This guy was doing shady things with controlled substance prescriptions, recommending unnecessary procedures, and botching procedures…the list goes on. Just because someone is holistic doesn’t mean they’re a better provider, or a even a good person. He lied and even altered dental records to cover his butt. Once you pull teeth, you end up with major bone loss. A bridge is NOT the answer after that…your jaw will just start to crumble and your teeth will move over time. Do you want to look like an old person? That’s what I looked like after Gent took most of my teeth and I had to wait for reconstructive surgeries. Once you lose teeth, it’s game over. I would give anything to have my root-canaled teeth back. I had NO problems with them…no pain, no sensitivity, no infection. Gent took them for the money. Creep.

  4. Thank you for sharing this!! I like you:)
    I have/had 2 failed root canals. One i had extracted, the other im supposed to have extracted on the 6th but they are telling me i HAVE to (instead of having a choice to say no) have bone graft which is 500 bucks out of pocket or she wont do an extraction.
    I think its retarded, so im going to tell her that she can and will extract it and no bone graft or im going to call the police department and claim im a hostage who is in the process of being robbed lol.
    I serioisly just might do it and hope i make the news
    But what struck me was the itchy rash you had on your trunk. I started getting strange rashes or what i dont know and cant put my finger on a term so i call them puffy itchy raised welts kind of like how a mosquito or flea bite looks when there is an allergic reaction.
    They would appear at random and never really in the same spot and it would vanish just as fast as it appeared.
    Weird!! I thought i was crazy, then i thought i had some kind of sepsis, then i ultimately ended up in the hospital ER with pylonephritis a kidney infection. Thats when i learned the hard way and gave up being a rebel and started to drinl water. A lot of water. All the time.

  5. Madonna,

    Empathize with you. Age 63, about HALF my teeth are root canaled/crowned. All my chewing molars. Now at least one is starting to fail and has abscess.
    Plus top fronts are root canaled. K’ve had terrible problems. Did NOT have holistic dentistry sadly for me.

    Why do they need to come out? Are they infected ?
    What is your plan? Good luck finding a holistic dentkst in Ilwa! Have you consulted the Holistic Dental Association?

  6. I am having my root canal tooth pulled in Boulder and I would love to send it to the lab to determine what kind of infection it carries. Can you tell me the lab in Colorado, that does this

    1. Hi Linda Warner ~ I’m also in Boulder and ready to pull an infected root canal tooth. Curious if you’ve done yours already, and if so, what dentist did you do it with? How did you feel ~ and heal afterwards? Any updates or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I’m so concerned that getting this procedure done will not resolve the infection properly. Thank you!

      1. I have to have an ozld, bad root canal removed. Is it necessary or required to have an oral surgeon do it or an ordinary dentist? I have an appt with both & have to cancel one. Are dentists ok to remove
        a root canal molor?
        Thanks

  7. Thank you so much for this article! I was debating if I needed anti-biotics after root canals being removed, glad to hear someone not using them. I also am feeling weird, not well, while at the same time I have used my inhaler less than 1/4 the amount as normal since the removal 4 days ago. Plus when I walk, my breathing is noticeably different, better, but it’s hard to pinpoint how exactly, less need for inhaler and I think it’s more stable. The other thing is I feel a little on edge and exhausted. I was hoping to feel really good right away after the removal so I was looking for someone else’s experience. Thank you again!
