Infections of the teeth and gums are highly prevalent, often leading to tooth extractions but much more frequent than most would think. Most infections are subclinical, meaning they produce little or no symptoms and can be very difficult to detect since they are not seen on x-ray. The disease and associated symptom pattern initiated from subclinical dental infections are commonly displayed elsewhere in the body including headaches, infections of the throat, tonsils, breasts, lymph nodes and even cancer. Missing teeth can thus be considered as proxy for chronic dental infections, caries or periodontitis.

A recent study followed-up a cohort for 24 years investigating the association between missing teeth and the incidence of cancer with the hypothesis that dental chronic inflammation links to cancer. Conclusion: In periodontally healthy subjects extracted molars, proxy for past dental infections, seemed to predict cancer risk in the studied age group – hence supporting a role of chronic dental infection/inflammation in carcinogenesis.

Another study revealed that an infection from a common type of mouth bacteria can contribute to colorectal cancer. The bacteria, called Fusobacterium nucleatum, can attach to colon cells and trigger a sequence of changes that can lead to colon cancer, according to the team at Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine.

Swollen gums, halitosis, and cavities are serious concerns, but may be insignificant problems compared to greater dangers of subclinical tooth infection: hepatitis, cancer, heart disease, and more. Bacteria in the mouth can multiply in damaged teeth and migrate throughout the body, causing significant damage, especially in teeth that have had root canals performed, leaving them to be virtual hotels for bacteria with no blood supply to carry immune cells to mitigate their livelihood.

Bacteria Flourish in the Mouth and Teeth

Damaged teeth and root canal teeth are ideal environments for bacterial growth. The dentin of each tooth contains microscopic tubules that enter its pulp and nerve, which are hospitable to “bad” anaerobic bacteria. Root canals are especially susceptible because immune cells cannot enter the dead tooth to destroy the bacteria. Mold, fungus, bacteria, and viruses that infect the tooth can move into the bloodstream at a constant rate. The following are early signs that a root canal may be leaking bacteria into the blood:

  • Periodontitis
  • Halitosis
  • Soreness and bleeding
  • Gum or cheek inflammation

Dr. Conners special Tooth and Gum oil was designed to help your body kill any periodontal infections that can destroy your health. This oil was created to simply add a drop onto your finger and rub (apply) gently over your gums, both top and bottom, inside and out. It is a proprietary blend of Black Cumin Oil and Oregano Oil. It may “sting” a bit for a short time and doesn’t necessarily taste great, but it works.

How to Use:

  • After brushing teeth (or during the day between meals) place one or more drops on finger and rub on top, outside gums
  • Repeat on top inside, bottom outside, and bottom inside gums
  • Add more drops to problem areas
  • Oil may sting a bit
  • Continue to apply daily or regularly
