The neurotoxic effect of root canals

16 April 2017
Toxic teeth

Root canals are done when an injury or a large cavity damages the tooth's root. The infected pulp is removed and the tooth is disinfected, and sealed. But, what you’re left with is a dead tooth with the same or worse infections that root canals supposedly remedy.

The hidden dangers

No biocompatible medicaments are available to clean the canal or seal the tooth. Materials such as paraformaldehyde are not only neurotoxic but you run the risk of overfilling which can cause further infection. From there, it’s a short path to your nervous system, immune system, circulatory system, musculoskeletal system and more.

"Instead of solving a problem, root canals introduce a steady stream of dangerous-and even deadly-toxins into your body."
Dr. Levy & Dr. Kulacz (The Toxic Tooth)

The waste these bacteria generate is neurotoxic and over time can manifest as an autoimmune disorder or other chronic illness including movement disorders.

Root canals are harbors for potent neurotoxins. Therefore you probably want them removed. We recommend using a dentist that specialises in this area. If the removal isn’t handled correctly, treatment can expose you to more neurotoxins and make your symptoms worse.
