Can Dental Infections Prevent Your Healing?

can dental infections prevent healing?

The breast-dental connection is so strong that I can confidently say about 90% of my clients have had adverse health effects from mercury-filled amalgams, root canals, infections, cavitations, and other dental toxicities. This is because your teeth directly connect to your breasts via the meridian system (learn more here), and lymphatic System. They are not disconnected organs that can be drilled, poked, and stuffed with toxic poisons without having an effect on the rest of your body. Teeth, tongue, and gum problems are “hidden culprits.” This is because often they don’t hurt, can’t be seen, and aren’t always accompanied by other sources of infection. Therefore, nontoxic products and dental practices, such as working with biological dentists, are critical to healing breast cancer.

Researchers have found that the risk of breast cancer was 14% higher in those who had periodontal disease. Among women who had quit smoking within the past 20 years, those with periodontal disease had a 36% higher risk of breast cancer. (Please read the full study here.) In a different study with 73,737 postmenopausal women who had breast cancer, 26.1% also had periodontal disease. There is a definite link between breast cancer and oral health, and it is finally getting the research that it deserves. 

In fact, many doctors are now referring to Breast Cancer as an “Infectious Dis-ease”! WHY? Because many of the pathogenic bacteria that are found in the mouth are also found in breast tumors. They land there via the Lymphatic System that drains from the mouth into the breast.

Periodontal Disease & Breast Cancer

Periodontal disease is a common condition that ranges from simple gum inflammation to major infectious damage that can cause a tooth to be removed. It is connected to heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and many types of cancers. Hormonal changes in women, smoking, poor oral hygiene, excessive plaque, autoimmune diseases, certain medications, teeth grinding, alcohol, and diabetes can all lead to chronic inflammation that creates periodontal disease. 

Here are a few direct ways that periodontal disease and breast cancer are linked:

  • Bacteria: Can enter your bloodstream and trigger a systemic inflammatory response, which may contribute to the growth and spread of cancer cells. For example, Porphyromonas gingivalis (an oral bacteria) has been found in breast cancer tumors.
  • Systemic inflammation: Chronic inflammation (from periodontal disease or chronic gum disease) in the mouth could enter the bloodstream and affect breast tissue.
  • Impaired immunity: Chronic inflammation, especially when combined with infection, can impair your immune system’s ability to fight malignant cells.

Dental Cavitation

This one gets its own section because it is an extremely common yet hardly discussed way to improve your healing of breast cancer, autoimmune diseases, arthritis, fibromyalgia, etc., when “nothing else has worked.” 

The beginnings of a dental cavitation usually happen much earlier than the formation of an actual hole. After dental surgery, bacteria from the original site will typically leave the area and gather along the jawbone. These pathogens will then burrow a hole into the bone, creating a hollow infected hole. If left unchecked, the bacteria can make multiple holes in the jaw. This is where decaying matter can create places for more bacteria, neurotoxins, and destructive enzymes to grow.

When enough of this “toxic soup” has gathered in the jaw area, these pathogens will inevitably leak into the bloodstream. The overload may lead to all kinds of chronic conditions, including breast cancer. However, once a person takes care of cavitation, their symptoms sometimes “mysteriously” disappear. Of course, they do! The person has cleaned up a significant source of bacterial toxins that have been affecting their whole body.

Root Canals

In reality, a root cancel is when a “dead organ” (your tooth) is filled with synthetic, toxic material. This creates an area ripe for pathogenic bacterial overgrowth that can lead to disease, including breast cancer. It also ensuresRoot Cause Documentary the entire canal system is enclosed, creating a cascade of issues for long-term health. For example, the biotoxins that will inevitably grow in the area are slowly dripped into the lymphatic and blood systems through the miles of tubules that surround the root. As time goes on, infections seep into the porous bone around the tooth and in your jaw, which can wreak havoc on your entire body.

Dr. Boyd Haley is one of the premier experts on biological toxins. He tested over 5,000 root canal samples and found that 100% of them were toxic. Some of the most common bio-toxins found in root canal samples were aspergillus, streptococcus, and botulinum. Many studies, including this one from 2020, have documented the crucial role of some oral cavity-occurring microbes in the initiation and progression of cancers, including breast and lung.

Root Cause

To really uncover how horrible root canals are, please watch Root Cause, a documentary about root canals. One of the experts featured is Dr. Thomas Levy, MD, JD. He is a cardiologist who worked with the biological dentist and health pioneer, Dr. Hal Huggins.

“The basic problem with a root canal is that it is what I call a fatally flawed procedure… The reason a root canal is done is you come to the dentist with pain. The problem is in taking out the pain. The dentist takes out the nerve and the pulp, the blood supply, and the connective tissue. If you will, the tooth undergoes a process of taxidermy while it is still in your mouth.”

Root canals need to be a thing of the past. According to Dr. Dawn Ewing, Executive Director of the International Academy of Biological Dentistry and Medicine, root canals were initially created by “a patient-driven desire to keep teeth in place for cosmetic reasons; missing teeth was and still is equated to being poor and socially inept.”

What should I do if I have a root canal?

7 Healthy Mouth/Healthy Breast Therapies

    1. Use the NOVORAL CARE PRO light therapy device for 5-15 minutes a day to treat receding gums and periodontal gum disease, kill bad breath and mouth bacteria, and gently whiten your teeth. Please learn more about this device and a few of my other favorite healing products via this blog post.
    2. Oil Pulling. It “pulls” harmful microorganisms out of deep pockets between teeth and gums. Oil’s chemical makeup binds toxins to it without harming teeth or gums, and many people immediately notice improvements. Gums heal, loose teeth tighten, and teeth naturally whiten. Please learn more via this blog post.
    3. Use a Hydro Floss® Irrigator daily because it uses magnetics to get rid of bacteria from the surface of teeth. According to a study report published in the Journal of Clinical Periodontology, the Hydro Floss® irrigators can inhibit plaque 64% more effectively than other irrigators, including the popular WaterPik®.
    4. Ozone Gas. Ask your biological dentist about Ozone gas Therapy. It can significantly reduce pocket depth (rubric for the advancement of the condition) of periodontal disease.
    5. Remove Toxic Amalgams. They contain about 50% mercury, one of the most toxic poisons on the planet! Please read this blog post on why and how to safely remove amalgams.
    6. Daily brushing and flossing. Of course, this is the most basic and important thing you can do. Please read this blog post to learn about nontoxic toothpaste, floss, and other oral health products.
    7. Oral Bacteria Testing. I recommend MyPerioPath®’s saliva test as it provides a simple yet comprehensive report outlining the top five oral pathogens you currently have and the levels of each one. Ask your Biological Dentist to order this test for you. 

Addressing dental toxicities is a CRITICAL aspect of removing what may be allowing breast cancer (and other dis-eases) to show up in your body. I have repeatedly seen that healing continues to improve when Essential #5, Embrace Biological Dentistry, is applied. In fact, dental toxicities are often the missing piece that is overlooked.

Did you know that most cancer patients have:

  • A lower basal body temperature which can impact your Immune System?
  • A tendency to be metabolically inflexible and insulin resistant?
  • A “personality type” that may affect your ability to heal?
