The Bacteria And Other Microorganisms That Are Involved In Dental Infection by:George MeinigThis article is part of Dr. George Meinig's,DDS, FACD, research information of the extensive and investigative research of Dr. Weston Price's,DDS, FACD, research work.
It might be of interest that the wall Street Journal, on the morning of my typing this page, reported that one year ago a small group of Scientists had met and exchanged data on the first drugs discovered by major pharmaceutical companies to arrest the AIDS virus. Their euphoria was blown just six months later when they found the AIDS virus wasn't being controlled but was mutating, and in its new form the infection was able to begin all over again.
The article went on to say that because of the organisms' ability to adjust and change, scientists now feel it may be a long time, if ever, before there is a cure for AIDS. Isn't it interesting that so long ago Dr. Price found bacteria trapped inside of teeth were doing the very same thing?
In the case of mutating streptococci germs or other bacteria housing themselves in dentin tubules, the obvious question is: "So what; how can they escape?"
The cementum itself won't allow the bacteria through its dense substance, except through accessory canals. However, the cementum is not able to stop the toxins of the bacteria from seeing through it structures.
In another investigation, Dr. Price explored this possibility using extracted teeth. He cemented small steel tubes into the root canal from the tooth's root end. He then hooked these up to a device which would pump water into the root canal under pressure. He found that when a dye was introduced, the colored water not only traveled through the dentin tubules but seeped through the entire structure of the cementum, the roots' outer, seemingly impervious, protective covering.
In addition to these ways for bacteria to escape into the bloodstream, bacteria can also leak out from around the root canal filling material. dentists diligently try to pack the root canal filling material so it doesn't permit bacteria trapped in the dentin to leak through the root-filling material and out through the root-canal opening at the end of the root, but tests by Dr. Price and others have shown that leaks occur.
What about those people who have had root canal fillings for years and have remained in good health? Dr. Price found these individuals represented about 30 percent of those treated. They had excellent immune systems able to control germs present.
Nevertheless, when these same healthy people suffered a severe accident,had a case of the Flu, lost their jobs, or suffered some other unusually heavy stress which overtaxed their immune systems, they could develop a degenerative disease problem because their defense mechanisms had become overwhelmed.
