Why Root Canals Are Dangerous

Posted by on Dec 5, 2013 in Denver Health, Uncategorized, Work Life Balance | 0 comments

Practicing as a biological dentist for the last 18 of my 23 year career, I am VERY interested in the health of my patients who seek my care. The day I became a biological dentist was the same day I stopped doing root canals forever.


Because I did not believe in ANY surgical procedure that leaves a dead tooth/body part. Then ten years later I participated in a research study on the dangers of root canals, specifically what toxins are in the root canal tooth. Ever smell a dead body? Well, that’s what it smells like inside every root canal. Next time you pull a root canal, cut the tooth in half and smell it. It’s dead and rotten in there, and the older the root canal the worse it gets. I have pulled over 2,000 root canaled teeth and I see first hand the damage done to the bone from the out gassing of hydrogen sulfide, which is the stinky gas in there. And finally, I have witnessed for “some strange reason”, the improvement in a plethora of diseases and their associated symptoms that “just go away”.

It is important for doctors and dentists alike to know the facts associated with root canals, and to revisit the Hippocratic oath taken in school which says “do no harm”. And, It is important for patients to understand their options when choosing what to do with their teeth, and how it impacts their overall health.

So, I invite all dentists to take the Hippocratic oath seriously one more time, to stop doing root canals altogether, AND to know what it takes to save the life of a tooth.
