Many of these posts are right on - great info ... I have another suggestion that can help you and others.
I was taught by two different holistic doctors (MD's) that only a 'Biological/Holistic Dentist' (NOT regular mainstream dentists) can detect exactly where a cavitation is in the jawbone, and once the bad bacteria in the cavitation is destroyed with ozone, the symptoms disappear within 24-hours or so ... and sometimes almost immediately. I went to one of these dentists (a two-hour drive away) and it worked. I follow up about once per year.
A 'cavitation' is deadly bacteria deep in the tubules or in the BONE surrounding the tooth, while a 'cavity' is decay in the actual tooth ... big difference.
A 'Biological/Holistic Dentist' can pinpoint exactly where the bacteria is and then administer a few 'ozone injections' right into the affected areas. The injection goes right into the gum-line and the pinch/prick only takes a few seconds. Costs vary from $60 - $300. Unfortunately, some dental insurance plans don't cover this effective treatment. Also, sometimes, they also have to remove any root-canals and mercury-amalgam fillings as they also cause a whole host of problems.
Anyway, the ozone shot/injection kills the bacteria instantly and the symptoms soon go away. Some of these dentists have said they can actually make a medical diagnosis just by looking at the results of the cavitation tests without the patient even telling them their medical diagnosis.
Every part of the mouth is connected to a Meridian in the body. Check it out -- it can save your life and that of your children and loved one ... and please pass this along.
You might have to travel to get to this kind of special dentist, unless you're fortunate enough to have one locally. DO NOT bother asking a regular mainstream dentist about this.
Look up 'TOOTH MERIDIANS CHART' -- 'NATURAL DENTISTRY'.
Every tooth, and the surrounding bone, is connected to a body organ and also a specific part of the body. Look up these dentists in your zip code. If you don't have one of these kinds of dentists locally, then it's worth traveling a few hours and spending the extra money it will cost. The majority of dentists do not practice 'Biological/Holistic' Dentistry which is exactly what you need.
Good luck and God Bless.
