Root Canals have been offered by dentists for many years as a way to help you save teeth with infected nerves. Unfortunately, more gets saved than just your tooth. In spite of all the good things traditional dentists say about root canals, the truth is that root canals inadvertently also trap millions of germs inside the tooth. Because there is no longer a blood supply, the trapped germs cannot be reached and destroyed by your immune system. If your immune system is healthy and strong, the best it can do is prevent the germs from spreading beyond the tooth. The reality is that teeth with root canals are always infected with germs that are able to stay alive inside the tooth and constantly leak their toxins and waste into the surrounding jawbone. Does this sound like something you want in your mouth?
