Tooth Loss, Dementia, & the Biological Terrain

Posted on Wednesday, May 24th, 2017

It wasn’t so long ago that most dentists scoffed at the notion that oral and systemic health are related.

New & Improved Root Canals? Yeah, Right

Posted on Wednesday, April 12th, 2017

Even endodontists will tell you, if they’re being honest, that root canal disinfection isn’t always effective.

Posted on Wednesday, April 5th, 2017

You often hear implant dentists brag about implant success rates as high as 98% – despite the fact that such numbers just don’t jibe with reality.

Posted on Wednesday, November 30th, 2016

Originally posted January 20, 2016 Many of the patients we see come to us with longstanding health problems they suspect are related to things like root canal teeth, mercury amalgam fillings and cavitations.
