Meridian Tooth Chart — Revised and Updated!

Revised and updated to be easier to use, this Tooth Meridian Chart shows you further that the mouth and body are interconnected. Problems in the teeth can have a direct influence on another organ (or organs) in the body.

No matter what you think about Chinese medicine, acupuncture, meridians (energy channels or pathways), and chi (energy), you should give this ancient method of diagnosis and treatment a chance. It has been used for thousands of years and is still used and taught to students all over the world.

If you believe in this work or not, take a few seconds to review this meridian tooth chart and see if you notice a link between your teeth and other parts of your body.

Unfortunately, holistic dentistry and looking in the mouth is typically a “last resort” approach to treating chronic illnesses. We at the Center For Natural Dentistry will gladly help people achieve health, though we prefer people come to us first BEFORE problems or symptoms persist.

Just click a tooth below to see which teeth and organs are on the same meridian.

    My son had a “baby” root canal done when he was 3. At the time, we had no idea that what were were doing was bad. We then took him at the age of 5 to someone advertising to be a holistic dentist and it was removed. That same visit he also received 5 composite fillings. I am now worried because the more I read about root canals and fillings I see we just keep messing up with this child’s mouth. My question is does a baby root canal have to be cleaned out in the same manner as an adult’s or does the new tooth that will come in push it out? Also, do sealants that are applied to children’s teeth wear off at some point or do they need to be removed if we are worried about BPA and Fluoride?

    Thank you for the site and information!!! Sure wish I had of know all of this several years ago.

    Last August, I had a Abscess tooth extracted, beforehand I semi-knew the price I paid but didn’t fully realize until it was removed, I suddenly felt those nerves being ripped from my chest or stomach. I felt chest pain lasted 1 or 2 seconds, then went away, but off and on it stayed, now last October my left side (breast bone) is in pain. I re grate what my mom had me do (she didn’t do any research on the consequences, My mood dropped drastically. Not to mention, I have MS, had it for 9 yrs.

    I had both top wisdom teeth removed and each molar next to these to wisdom teeth extracted. I educated myself about root canals and did not want any dead teeth in my mouth. I feel a little better. Especially my sinuses. But how does this effect my body? My meridians?

  4. Hello, any information on silver fillings causing issues within the meridians? I have silver fillings in both #14 and #15 from childhood and was diagnosed with hypothyroidism as a young adult. If this could be related, what should I do?

    • Sheli, you will be hard pressed to find any scientific evidence, only anecdotal evidence. Your best bet is to find out if you are allergic/sensitive to mercury then have the fillings removed properly. It could be related or it could not. Look at it from a toxicity view and get rid of the toxins if you are being affected by them. Trying to correlate the fillings with meridians is setting yourself up for failure. Dr. Marvin

    My 11y old daughter’s molar became so bad that the dentist suggested either to do root canal or remove the tooth. What are other options if I wold like to keep her tooth? Firstly I thought that to remove it would be more convenient as there will be no infection but now when I realised that teeth are connected with organs and meridians it may not be the best decision. What would you advice?

    what body parts are related to the teeth

  7. How does the teeth affect the ears or dentistry?? Which tooth is associated with the ears. My husband has terrible tinnitus (ringing in the ears) and trying despartely trying to finding some relief for him! Thank you so much for anyone’s advice or response

  8. Everyone says NO to root canals but now what do you do if it’s too late? Finding out this information now is too late, what do you do after the fact??

    • Kelly, DId anyone ever answer your question?

    • I was told that I need to have imy root canal tooth removed.

    • Kelly. If doing a root canal keeps a dead tooth connected to your body, then over time it isn’t good for your overall health (if it hasn’t already). So it is up to you and your health care professionals to determine if or when to do treatment for the root canaled tooth. And to be clear, once a root canal is done, you cannot undo it. Dr. Marvin

    • How dinI get my one root canal removed safely?

  9. I find this so interesting and I am a dental hygienist. What is the thought for implants? Are they ok? Just don’t like to see no options for tooth replacement especially if it’s anterior.

      You tell me.

  10. My mouth is full of root canals and crowns. what would you do to fix this and what is your way of replacing a tooth? Do you then make a partial or false teeth?

    • Penni, There are way too many options (biocompatibility, location in mouth, function, esthetics, durability etc) to make a recommendation without a full exam and radiographs. That’s why you need to find a dentist that understands any and all options for you. Sorry for being so vague but there are way too many variables. Dr. Marvin

  11. Hi there!

    I have been told that my daughter needs braces. This requires the removal of 4 healthy premolars and also some oral surgery to pull a canine tooth up from below the gum.

    What effect does the removal of healthy premolars have on the associated meridians.

    I would deeply appreciate a prompt reply, if at all possible.

    thank you

      Please, do not let ANYONE remove your daughters molars. Her mood and her appearance will change drastically and for worse. Please go to the website claiming power, look up Raymond Silkman and read his website, and find a more holistically minded orthodontist who will NOT remove molars, which are entire organs. This horrible orthodontic practice ruins people’s lives. I have had issues from my orthodontics for 20 years and eventually lost my opera career because my bite and neck got so far off. These days, there are excellent orthodontists who use things like an ALF device and damon braces to widen the palate. The removal of healthy teeth will not only damage meridians, but also can be a disaster neuro-muscularly. Don’t worry, lots of great people out there. Try calling Anna Patras or Barry Raphael (REALLY nice man) in New Jersey for referrals to someone in your area.

        daughter’s — sorry for the typos, writing quickly.

      • My son has cervical instability ( whiplash )
        Type injury . He has 3 impacted wisdom teeth
        Causing havoc . Afraid neck will get worse
        From extraction trauma . Dentist removed
        Upper ( bottom two remain ) and he feels worse .
        Please let me know your thoughts on this

    • That sounds pretty dam extreme. Why would you need to remove all those healthy teeth for braces. Use your head, does that sound right to you? I’m tired of you lazy ass parents not doing any research and just taking their word without question.You posted this because something is so glaringly wrong and your subconcious is screaming at you don’t do it!!

      • Just to clarify, so if you had your wisdom teeth removed (unfortunately) then I am assuming you’d start counting your bottom molars are 31 as an example on the bottom right? Thanks so much great info!

      • You sir, are an idiot. Lazy? Really? Geezus.

  13. Every time I see a tooth-organ chart I wonder whether it is numbered from a dentist’s perspective looking down into the mouth or from my perspective as the owner. I.e., whose left and whose right????? Can someone in the know clarify?

    • It’s really both. It’s from the “owner’s” perspective. The right side is the right side of your own mouth. You’ll notice that the chart above is shown from the perspective of the dentist. As he or she looks into your mouth, the right side of your teeth will be on their left. Hope that helps!

    • Dentists perspective
      #1 is your upper right 3 rd molar ( wisdom tooth)
      16 is your upper left
      17 is your lower left
      32 is yourlower right

    • It is numbered from a frontal point of view.
      The dentist looks at you.
      Under you right eye is the first quadrant in the upper jaw, under the left eye the second, lower left side of the jaw is the third quadrant, right lower jaw is the fourth quadrant. It is from the viewer’s point of view from the front, not from the owner’s.

      Love and Light

    • I had wisdom teeth removed as they were growing into the back of my head; I have found out that I have another set beneath that will probably never surface…

        Tom, I nearly died from a root canal. I had the tooth pulled out after 9 months of laryngitis, sinus, pneaumonia, breasts so sore I couldn’t sleep on them, and knees that suddenly were horribly painful.I really felt I was dying; I had had to quit all my usual extracurricular activities..There are many sources, but off hand, you can look at Dr. and search root canals for a comprehensive article.
