Probably many of your wisdom teeth have already been gone for years. We all trust our dentists to do the best job possible, regarding them as professionals in their field, while often not even questioning their methods.
However, we may have made a mistake there. This article will speak about the importance of wisdom teeth, and may come just in time for someone to reconsider his decision and not just listen to the dentist.
Many of us have been told that wisdom teeth need to be extracted just because they are not really needed. According to the dentists, they are just unnecessary teeth that just inconveniently crowd out mouths.
What are wisdom teeth
Often referred to as your third molars, the wisdom teeth are the teeth in the very back of your mouth and there are four of them, one located in each of the four corners of the mouth, upper and bottom areas. These usually start to come in when someone is in their late teenage years or early 20s. According to scientific publication, about 67% of wisdom tooth extractions are preventative yet unnecessary. The removal of wisdom teeth has become an actual business. In fact, in the U.S. alone, over 10 million wisdom teeth extractions occur annually and out of those, only 20 were necessary cases. An old wise tale claims that wisdom teeth can cause all sorts of health problems but it’s not true. In fact, it’s actually become a major business builder in the dentistry industry with over $1 billion a year spent on wisdom tooth extractions.
Dr. Weston A. Price did extensive research on the connection between oral health and diseases in the 1900s. He found native tribes, with their traditional diets, that were almost 100 percent free of tooth decay.
Hence, he concluded that dental and overall health lie in nutrition. Luckily, holistic dentists practice this discovery nowadays, as they understand that when you supply enough nutrients to the jaw bone during its development, all 32 teeth will have proper space in your mouth without crowding. This means that proper nutrition is the key behind trouble- free wisdom teeth.
Moreover, Dr. Weston Price also found that when these tribes started consuming sugar and white flour, the condition of their perfect healthy teeth quickly deteriorated.
Why You Need Your Wisdom Teeth
Our teeth are vital, living organs within and connected to the body as a whole. Wisdom teeth are connected (according to acupuncture meridians) to our small intestine and the front of our pituitary gland. In fact, 46 percent of the motor and sensory nerves in your brain’s cerebral cortex are interconnected to your mouth and face. So any time a tooth is removed, it disturbs and breaks an acupuncture meridian that flows through the area of that tooth. The meridian acupuncture system, known in Traditional Chinese Medicine for more than 5000 years, shows the vital relationship between your teeth and your joints, spinal segments, vertebrae, organs and endocrine glands.
Warning! Wisdom Teeth Extractions Can Be Very Much Dangerous!
It should also be considered that some of these unnecessary tooth extractions actually are dangerous. According to research, about 57,000-175,000 people who have had their wisdom teeth extracted have experienced permanent nerve damage resulting in lifelong numbness, tingling, and prickling. Obviously, the nervous system and the mouth are connected. While removing wisdom teeth is very common in America, it could even result to fatalities in worst case scenarios. This is why these extractions should only be done if the wisdom teeth absolutely must come out.
