Root Canal Removal

How are teeth involved in the origin of chronic diseases?

Root Canal Removal

 

Root canaled teeth are dead teeth. Even the most perfect micro-endodontic treatment will not be able to realize a perfectly bacteria-proof sealing of the treated tooth. 

The dead tooth, originally an organ with its own nerve and blood supply remains as a dead stump in the oral cavity. It will be populated by various, partly unknown species of anaerobic, pathogenic bacteria which degrade remaining organic tissue and secrete harmful metabolic products (toxins).

Bacteria that can be found in and around dead teeth: Enterococcus faecalis, capnocytophaga ochracea, Fusobacterium nucleatum, leptotriccia buccalis, and porphyromonas gingivalis. Four of these species affect the heart, three the nervous system, two kidneys and the brain, one the maxillary sinus.
