THE MOUTHBODY LIST
Handpicked. From education to self-care solutions.
01. The mouthbody connection
Why good dental health depends on more than brushing and flossing— and why a clean, happy mouth gives your whole body something to smile about. Choose a dentist who knows the mouthbody connection. He or she will explain why they don't like root canals, mercury amalgam fillings, or early prophylactic removal of wisdom teeth. The reason is more than your teeth.
02. Are your teeth wrecking your health?
Dental history can tell a savvy practitioner a lot about your health and can have a big impact when devising an appropriate healing plan. Chronic infections in the jaw that may be invisible from infected root canals or post-extraction tooth sockets or from gum disease can cause autoimmune disorders, stroke, heart attack and diabetes.
03. Why don't we treat teeth like the rest of our bodies?
The artificial separation between dentistry and the rest of medicine dates back to the dental profession’s roots as an offshoot of hairdressing. The result has been bad for dentistry and medicine both.
04. The dramatic benefits of minimally invasive dentistry
Unnecessary drilling and filling your teeth with toxic materials can have far-reaching, long-term health ramifications. Newer alternative types of dentistry, such as minimally-invasive dentistry, biomimetic dentistry, and holistic or biological dentistry offer dramatically safer and more effective solutions.
05. Mercury: Is this toxic heavy metal In your mouth?
Mercury is a neurotoxin that has been linked to immune system suppression and a host of physical problems including brain damage, Autism, Alzheimers, ALS, MS, Cancer, and other chronic diseases.

11. Why and how to avoid a root canal
Root canals, or the removal of the main, central nerve inside an infected tooth, are said to be safe by the American Dental Association. The problem is that the central nerve isn’t the only area of the tooth infected with pathogenic, anaerobic bacteria. Keeping an infected root canal tooth in your mouth can wreak havoc on your body.
12. Toxicity, whole body burden and dental cavitations
Not many people know what cavitations are and the risks of them lurking in your mouth.

This presentation explains it all.
