Root Canals, Formaldehyde, Infections — Oh My!
Episode 15 of Dangers in Dentistry, originally aired on KPRZ in San Diego.
No one wants a root canal. But are there medical reasons to avoid the painful root canal therapy that so many people undergo?
The bacteria left in the tooth after a root canal can infect the mouth, the jaw, the blood stream, and the entire body. The chemicals used to sterilize your canal during the procedure (including formaldehyde) can also cause serious damage to your overall health.
So why are root canals performed? Do they really “save the tooth,” as endodontists and dentists like to say?
Discover the truth about the dangers — and benefits — of root canals in this week’s episode of Dangers in Dentistry, with America’s Holistic Dentist, Dr. Marvin.
