When The Cure Is In Your Mouth

As I demonstrated last week, a problem with your teeth and gums can cause serious disease in other parts of the body. Arthritic pain, cancer, heart disease, vision trouble and even lack of growth in children often can be linked to what is going on in the mouth. As a result, what seems to be incurable chronic illness can sometimes be reversed by solving a dental difficulty.

Consider these case histories and see if they don’t convince you of the importance of dealing with dental pathology.

Arthritis Pain

Sam C. was a 10-year-old boy with a diagnosis of severe JRA (juvenile rheumatoid arthritis). He struggled to walk due to the pain and arthritis that afflicted his major and minor joints. His doctors offered him treatment with high doses of corticosteroids and gave him a poor prognosis, predicting stunted growth and early death. His mother took him to a chiropractor who recognized that his arthritis started when he had an upper right tooth root canal with a stainless steel crown.

His mother went back to the dentist who had performed the root canal. This dentist refused to extract the tooth because he could not find anything abnormal on his X-rays, and the boy denied any pain in the tooth, surrounding bone or gums. Two more dentists were consulted and both also refused to extract the tooth.

In February 2011, they consulted with Wendell Robertson, D.D.S. Robertson realized that the boy indeed did have dental pain but was in denial. He advised having the tooth extracted, and the socket thoroughly curetted and sterilized with ozone. In two days after this procedure, the tooth pain ended. The arthritic symptoms gradually eased and are now nearly completely gone except when he sprints or takes part in other strenuous exercises.

Seeing The Light

Dan M. was completely blind in August 2011 when he went to Dr. Robertson for dental work. Dan had two teeth extracted and two large mercury-alloy fillings properly removed. Two weeks later, he returned for a follow-up visit and reported he could see blurry outlines of windows and doorways and movement of large objects. A few weeks later, he successfully mowed his lawn with much less difficulty than before.

Although Dan is still seeking a complete cure of his blindness, he has had a near cure after his dental extractions. Further detoxification and cleansing may likely further improve his vision.

Cane Scrutiny

Samantha H. described her hip pain as feeling “like it is out of joint.” But her orthopedist could find nothing wrong on an MRI. Consequently, she was prescribed only pain medication. Samantha was using a cane when she went to Robertson for dental work. After two and a half hours of dental surgery to remove a benign lesion of chronic localized sclerosing osteomyelitis, Samantha could walk without her cane and hasn’t used it since. 

No Growth

Brandon, age 10, came to Robertson for dental work in hopes it could help alleviate his lack of growth. Robertson placed what is called an epigenetic orthodontic appliance in Brandon’s mouth. This device is intended to encourage undifferentiated bone stem cells to grow in parts of the bone plate of the upper mouth.

The appliance created space in the jaw bone. Brandon wore the appliance and began growing taller at the rate of one inch each month for four months. Robertson explains that the appliance relaxed the lower facial bones and allowed for normal pituitary function (inside the skull). The pituitary gland secretes growth hormone and other hormones important for the body’s development.

Late Expectations

These patients did not expect the wonderful results they got from being treated by a biological dentist. But when biological dentistry is combined with proper detoxification and cleansing, you may be able to combat a surprising number of chronic illnesses.

    Hello, Dr. Cutler: As one of your on-line patients who has tried several of your supplements, I’m not surprised that you expound the virtues of a biological dentist. For 15 years, I had pyorrhea in my gums near the molars. This caused a lot of pain and discomfort with chewing. I would be treated with Tetracycline, which eased the pain and killed the infection. However, the infection would be dormant for a while and then start up again. I figured this was because the molar gum tissue had receded and would repeatedly get infected. I had suggested many times to my dentist to extract the tooth, but at first he refused, saying there was nothing wrong with the tooth, and he didn’t want to pull a healthy tooth. However, without any medical knowledge, I knew the infection was in the gums. Well, I got tired of taking Tetracycline on a regular basis, because it caused photogenic reactions when I’d go in the sun. I would break out in hives and rashes from that antibiotic. Additionally, it was discoloring my bottom teeth, turning them gray. The dentist finally relented and extracted the offending molar which became loose anyway, and I have had no further problems with my gums. Sometimes patients have to take matters into their own hands, because they know how their bodies function, and actually experience what can go wrong. I do like my dentist. He is a Christian man, and very kind and gentle. He is also devoted to his profession. I have been with him for nearly 20 years now, and I wouldn’t trust anyone else. He has done root canals, bridges and crowns in my mouth, and all have been successful. I like to kid him and tell him I’ve helped put his kids through college, but it may be true.

    Anyway, the point of all this is that sometimes a patient can know what his or her problem is, but traditional doctors and dentists are not willing to take the ramblings of a non-professional that seriously. I am glad natural healing physicians and dentists are more open minded and try alternative methods of curing that work as good as or better than the mainstream.

    Dear Dr Cutler, The story on Sam C. diagnosed with JRA. I have read and done a lot of research in the use of Low Dose Naltrexone and intravenous Alpha Lipoic Acid and diet changes with for green juicers per day. Reference to Dr Burt Berkson he has had good results by using this treatment to help relieve pain and suffering of reheumatiod arthritis and many other illness such as MS, Cronhs and Cancers too and the lists go on.
