 silver fillings and root canals are dangerous

Two books are available that uncover what the ADA is not admitting to: that
root canals cause more illnesses and silver fillings are poisoning our
bodies. Read about it. Learn the facts. Visit the web sites listed for more
info.

THE ROOT C{*filter*}COVER-UP

If you have had a root c{*filter*}or have been told that you need one, please
read this book first!

Learn how:
€ Root canals can damage health
€ Root canals can cripple the immune system
€ Why antibiotics do not elliminate these infections
€ The heart is often affected
€ Tooth decay leads to root canals
€ Improved tooth extraction technique supports health

Bacteria trapped inside the structure of teeth migrate throughout the body.
They may infect any organ, gland or tissue and can damage the heart,
kidneys, joints, eyes, brain, and endanger pregnant women. Learn how these
infections were discovered by a 25 year Root C{*filter*}Research Program, which
was carried out by the American  Dental Association, and was subsequently
covered up.

Root C{*filter*}Cover-Up was written by Dr. George Meinig, D.D.S., based on the
research of Dr. Weston Price, who spent 25 years researching root canals.
Price's research uncovered startling results that were subsequently covered
up by the American Dental Association more than 70 years ago.

TOXIC TEETH TOXIC BODY, THE TRUTH ABOUT AMALGAM FILLINGS

 "For the past 150 years, deadly mercury vapors have been leeching from
dental silver amalgam fillings into the bodies of 85% of the western
population. Silver amalgam fillings are having a negative effect on the
mind, body, and spirit of much of humanity."

   - Francene Lee, author, "Toxic Teeth Toxic Body"

By now, you may have heard about the dangers associated with mercury
poisoning from   silver amalgam fillings. It is a great idea to free your
mouth from these toxic mercury fillings, however, you must follow the
correct precautions during this procedure.

 "Toxic Teeth Toxic Body" is a patient's guide to mercury toxicity and
detoxification. It has been written to give you a clear pathway to the
safer removal of fillings from your teeth.  It presents the most recent
protocols and explains how to detoxify the entire body from mercury.

"Toxic Teeth Toxic Body" presents opinions on detoxification procedures
ranging from IV-chelation to homeopathics. The book is a self-published,
work-in-progress based on more than 10 years of research. However, it
already includes 60 pages of information to assist the patient as a manual
during the removal of fillings and follow-up detoxification process.

A DDS degree is a degree awarded in the USA.
There is no such doctor named George Meinig.
A search was made by hand and elctronically.
Under both DDS and DMD and all types. Even MD.
Any Dr Meinig Related to active patient interaction (no PhD or the like
have been included in the cross alpha search).
Unless you can porvide us with his DEA or LIcense number , the information
you have provided us as being a practising Dentist is invalid and not to
be trusted.

I would agree that it's probably the most biased site on the Web. It
contains claims that no one could get away with in the amalgam debate
in Scandiavia or Germany, where most people are much more knowledgable
about the issue. And the site is probably not unbiased on any other
issue, either. The keeper of this site is Dr. Stephen Barrett. In the
misc.health.alternative newsgroup, someone just posted a quote from a
New Zealand government report in which a book by Dr. Barrett on
chiropractic is described as "plainly propaganda",

Quotes from NZ government report:

-----------------------

In regards to "The Leigh Valley Committee Against Heath Fraud,
Inc."...."The chairman of the committee's board of directors is
Dr. Stephen Barrett. He is a psychiatrist and is described in The
'Health Robbers' as  'the nation's most vigorous opponent
of health quackery'. He has for some time been the moving spirit
behind the committee, at least on the question of chiropractic.
   We have considered material published over Dr Barrett's name.
The chapter on chiropractic in The Health Robbers (entitled 'The
Spine Salesman') was written by him. It is plainly propaganda. What
we have seen of the rest of his writing on chiropractic has the
same tone. Nothing he has written on chiropractic that we have
considered can be relied on as balanced."

After investigation of other actions and material published under
the auspices of the Lehigh Valley Committee Against Health Fraud,
The NZ Commission commented that their "enthusiasm is far greater
than its respect for accuracy, at least in regards to the facts
concerning chiropractic."

Dr. Meinig replies:

Regarding your reference on "on sci. med. dentistry" the following is
pertinent:

My book is certainly not a hoax.  I am the George E. Meinig, D.D.S.,
F.A.C.D. referred to, but inasmuch as I have not seen the statement or
article you refer to, I cannot comment directly about your concerns and
charges.

My degrees are listed above after my name.  I am a graduate of the
Chicago College of Dental Surgery.  Had post graduate training in
endodontics with Professor Edgar Coolidge, the foremost endo research in
the world at that time.  I was a member of his study group and an active
participant in presenting root c{*filter*}therapy at dental meetings over the
mid-west.  Was one of the 19 dentists who started the American
Association of Endodontists.

Practiced in Evanston, IL six and one-half years; three years U.S. Army
Air Corp. (managed 35 bed surgical ward in a regional hospital); managed
the dental office at the 20th Century Fox Studio; private practice of a
wide variety of dental subjects in Ojai, California; retired after 47
years of practice.

In 1992, I came upon the Weston A. Price, D.D.S., M.S., 25 years or
research on all phases of root c{*filter*}therapy.  It is very well
documented in two huge volumes (1174 pages).  Vol. I. "Dental Infections
- {*filter*}& Systemic" and Vol. II "Dental Infections & the Degenerative
Diseases", and additional documentation which appears in over 25
articles in the medical and dental literature.

The last eight to ten years of those 25 years of research were carried
out under the auspices of the then "Research Institute" of the American
Dental Association.  The Research Institute's activities were governed
by 60 of the nation's leading dental and medical scientists and its work
was directed by Dr. Price, who was a Dental Research Specialist.

I was shocked four years ago to have never heard or seen a word of this
research or even to find another dentist who had ever heard of it.
Study revealed it had been covered up and buried by the autocratic
action of a group of dentists and physicians who could not accept the
focal infection theory; by the fraudulent reporting of other research;
and by the discovery of penicillin which allowed physicians to forget
about the causes of medical and dental pathology.

It became obvious in studying Dr. Price's findings that a high
percentage of degenerative diseases, now in epidemic proportions in the
United States, are actually being caused by bacteria and their toxins
locked into the dentin tubules of infected and/or root c{*filter*}filled
teeth.  Concern for these people, many who are going from doctor to
doctor trying to find the cause of their diseases led me to write the
book, "Root C{*filter*}Cover-up".  In view of your strong feelings, it would
be my suggestion that you contact PPNF and purchase a copy. It is a
report of those 1174 pages of documentation.  Should you want the
information straight from source, PPNF can provide copies of Dr. Price's
original two books.  The A.D.A. also has a copy of them.  Incidentally,
the Price Pottenger Foundation is the custodian of all of the Dr. Price
research data.

After reading either of these publications, should you have any further
questions, I will be happy to receive your call.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity of answering the confusing
information you received.

Healthful regards,

George E. Meinig, D.D.S., F.A.C.D.

 silver fillings and root canals are dangerous

To Dr Meining,
I read your email on "sci.med.dentistry" with interest.
My own field is "Amalgam Related Illness" - I run
the UK Amalgam Page
( http://www.***.com/ )
and have started a newsgroup for the subject
(alt.health.dental-amalgam).
From my experience, I am sure you are generally correct
about root-fillings, insofar that they become a site for
infection - from my experience, abcesses very readily
develop under root-filled teeth, due to the replacement of
healthy tissue with dead filling material. Indeed the one and
only abcess I have had is on the one and only root filling
I have ever had!
However I am less sure as to whether root-fillings on their
own cause the range of diseases you attribute to them.
In Dr Prices research, was any attempt made to differentiate
the toxic effects of Mercury-Amalgam from the effects of
the root-fillings?
I do however think it is reasonable to say that long-term
infections like abcesses place additional stress on the immune
system, and to some extent, in conjunction with other
toxins (like Mercury) can contribute to range of illnesses.

cheers
A Millet,

I would like to know what is the solution after excessive dentistry, in
particular root canals and metal posts towards my nose and chin, I take
penecillin for sinusitis regulary, its like have an implanted splinter
that won't go away. It just gets more tender over time they never felt
good, I don't think there is any tissue to soften the impact,  just
bone. Now I am disabled in California because as a singleparent I never
had medical insurance and cannot afford to repair the damage, UCSF and
the state says there is nothing wrong with my teeth, so why do they keep
breaking and why am I so ill, I have no strength but I have never been
ill and did competitive sports. Years ago my dentist told me that my
dental work had to be limited to the least amount of damage to good
tooth. When I moved I told all my dentists this, but they ignored me and
lined me up for 3 or 4 appointments, now I have more metal than tooth,
loss of bite and TMJ. Now I see a pattern, my daughter had one filling,
then two, then she started getting ill, so I went to a childrens dentist
and he removed the fillings and put in composites, and filled some new
holes. She has needed no more dental work since and her health has
improved. But since she was in my dental chair during pregnancy I don't
think she will ever be as strong as I used to be.

I am seriously concerned that the impact of excessive dentistry has not
been addressed. Not even the ADA can deny it is a concern it is listed
as one of the disadvantages. How does one address this problem?

sincerely
mom

What a load of crap!  Teeth that have had root c{*filter*}fillings vecome a
site of infection?  Where did that come from other than a personal bias?
Any valid evidence?

What a load of crap!  Teeth that have had root c{*filter*}fillings vecome a
site of infection?  Where did that come from other than a personal bias?
Any valid evidence?

Abstract
                    The aim of this study was to observe the root c{*filter*}
                    flora and possible penetration of microorganisms
                    into dentinal tubules in teeth with necrotic pulps.
Ten
                    infected maxillary and mandibular molars with
                    periapical lesions were extracted and fixed in 2.5%
                    phosphate-buffered glutaraldehyde solution for nine
                    days. After separation from the crowns, longitudinal
                    grooves were cut in the roots, and they were split
                    into two halves. The specimens were prepared for
                    SEM. The root canals and the dentinal tubules of the
                    fractured dentin were scanned systematically from
                    the cervical to the apical area of the root. Cocci
and
                    rods were seen in 6 specimens. Penetration of
                    bacteria into the dentinal tubules ranged from 10 to
                    150 microns. In 4 specimens, the root canals were
                    heavily invaded by yeasts. The antimicrobial effect
of
                    routinely used endodontic disinfectants also on
                    yeasts may be considered in persistent root c{*filter*}
                    infections.

Abstract
                    The purpose of the study was to evaluate the
                    penetration of bacterial endotoxin (L.P.S.) through
                    obturated root canals. Twenty-four single-rooted
                    teeth were instrumented in a uniform manner. The
                    root canals of 16 teeth were obturated with
                    guttapercha and Roth's sealer and 8 teeth were
                    similarly obturated but without sealer. The teeth
                    were then divided into three groups. Group
                    1-Positive control (4 teeth). Teeth obturated
without
                    sealer were used. Sticky wax was softened in an
                    open flame and painted over the external root
                    surface except the apical 2 mm and coronal c{*filter*}
                    orifice which were left free of the sticky wax.
Group
                    2-Negative control (4 teeth). Again teeth without
                    sealer comprised the teeth in this group. However,
in
                    this group the sticky wax covered the apical area of
                    the root and the c{*filter*}orifice coronally, in
addition to
                    the rest of the root. Group 3-Experimental (16
teeth).
                    The teeth obturated in conjunction with sealer were
                    used. Otherwise the teeth were treated as in group
                    1. The coronal root half was then hermetically
                    sealed from the apical root half so that LPS placed
                    coronally could move only through the obturated
                    c{*filter*}space to the apical segment. One ml of water
                    containing 100 micrograms/ml endotoxin was
                    placed in the upper chambers and pyrogen-free
                    water in the lower chambers. The upper and lower
                    chambers were then tested for endotoxin at different
                    time periods upto 21 days. The upper chambers
                    tested positive for endotoxin at all test times for
all
                    teeth. All 4 positive control teeth showed endotoxin
                    in the lower chambers by 24 hrs.

Abstract
                    The purpose of this study was to determine if the
                    Nd:YAG laser was capable of disinfecting
                    contaminated root canals in vitro. Eighty canals of
                    extracted single-rooted teeth were prepared to size
                    35 K-file. The teeth were sterilized with ethylene
                    oxide gas and then inoculated with Bacillus
                    stearothermophilus. Eight groups were treated as
                    follows: 1, sterility control; 2, positive control,
no
                    treatment; 3, hand instrumentation with sterile
water
                    filling chamber; 4, hand instrumentation with NaOCl
                    (5.25%) filling chamber; 5, ultrasonic
instrumentation
                    with sterile water; 6, ultrasonic instrumentation
with
                    NaOCl; 7, laser exposure with sterile water; and 8,
                    laser exposure with NaOCI. All instrumentation times
                    were 1 min. Teeth were then flushed with 1.0 ml of
                    sterile water onto {*filter*} agar plates, and the number
                    of colony forming units were determined. Results
                    indicate that: (i) all groups treated with NaOCI
                    effectively inhibited the growth of B.
                    stearothermophilus; (ii) hand and ultrasonic
                    instrumentation with sterile water did not
effectively
                    disinfect root canals; and (iii) the Nd:YAG laser
was
                    effective in inhibiting the growth of B.
                    stearothermophilus. The effects of the Nd:YAG laser
                    on other bacteria more commonly found in root
                    c{*filter*}systems should be evaluated.
