Episode Description

A sick organ can cause chronic inflammation in a related tooth. Alternatively, a chronic dental focus can engender chronic dysfunction and inflammation in a related organ. Therefore, holistic doctors and dental physicians must take care to accurately diagnose the underlying problem before taking the very permanent step of tooth extraction, to make sure that the tooth is truly the problem. If a focal tooth does need to be extracted, then this should be done where the tooth is extracted and any remaining infected tissues (periodontal ligaments, necrotic jawbone areas) are also thoroughly excised.

If you have a mouth, this show is for you! Are you sick and tired of being sick and tired? It might be your teeth! Do you have silver fillings? They are actually called mercury amalgams as they are 50 percent mercury. Do you have root canal teeth? Do your gums bleed? Are your teeth loose? Would you like to learn how to keep your teeth and gums healthier? Could you have a hidden infection in your jaw?

Many people have had their amalgams removed without any precautions taken and have actually increased the level of mercury in their body through that process. Our show educates you about toxic heavy metals. We also discuss protocols that should be used to help keep a patient from absorbing mercury and how to remove mercury from body tissues after the fillings have been removed.

The International Academy of Biological Dentistry and Medicine is a 30 year old organization. Biological dentistry is concerned with the whole body effects of all dental materials, techniques and procedures. Its fluoride-free, mercury-free and mercury safe protocols are implemented while removing old fillings. What happens in the mouth is reflected in the body and what happens in the body is reflected in the mouth. They are inseparable. Teeth are connected to the whole body through bones, blood, lymph and fascia. Biological dentistry is concerned with the whole body effects of oral-facial structure, teeth/gum/jaw infections, dental materials, dental treatment and non-treatment, as well as the effect of a patient’s food, lifestyle, environment and systemic health on their teeth, gums, jaws, muscles, joints, saliva and associated oral tissues and structures. Biological dentistry is also concerned with the effect of all health care interventions on a patient’s oral health.

The Academy networks with researchers, physicians and dentists to stay current on toxic materials that may alter health. We host educational events as well as annual conferences to present our research and learn from our peers. We discuss heavy metals, fluoride, toxins produced from root canaled teeth, how dentistry can impact an immune system, sleep apnea, nutrition and much more.

Dr. Dawn Ewing is the executive director of the IABDM and hosts the show with many of our leaders in the field.
