Bad Dentistry - Dental Assistant Attempts Root Canal and Fails
What follows below is a real case study submitted by a reader of this website. It describes how their health was harmed by bad dentistry.
My name is Soso, I am a female and I am 28 years old. I have been through a horrible experience that made me lose trust in my dentist and made me believe that they are money collectors rather than dentists. I had my two molars treated for decay. A year later, the molars hurt, and I had to check back with the dentist who told me that the sides of the treated molars had decay on them and that I needed a root canal treatment for both molars. The first thing he did, was to transfer me to his assistant (who had been working as a dentist for 1 year only) because he couldn't deal with my small jaw. And during all that period of treatment I wasn't comfortable at all because I didn't have the feeling of being in safe hands and I didn't trust her skills too. So all the time I was frightened but then I was telling myself if he trusts her why should I be frightened and was persuading myself to feel stronger. So I started going to perpetual sessions on a weekly basis but it lasted too long, like for a period of three months without even starting with the root canal filling. This ended in my molar being broken (when I ate a chocolate) since it was already weak because the root was extracted. And since then I lost trust in my dentist and I was wondering all the time whether the treatment needed that long period, since I only had three canals in that molar. Of course when I said I want to leave them and go to another dentist for treatment the assistant switched me back to my dentist, and I was really so mad and frightened. He defended himself by saying that my jaw is small that is why it took them so long and that it is normal to have teeth broken during canal treatment and that he will try his best not to extract the molar (which is something he would have done with other patients but because he cares he will try his best to save the molar by placing a screw in the root canal filling). I guess that if his assistant worked more efficiently it could have been done in a shorter period of time and my molar couldn't have been broken. Mind you that after it had been broken (in the third month) he started working in a more efficient way reflecting to me that he is doing his best to save the teeth. Of course, this made me pay more since he was trying to save the molar from being extracted. I always wonder on the maximum period of time for root canal treatment, should it be 3 months long? (The first month I used to go there every two days.) Anyway, my molar was saved after putting in a screw and a crown; it costed me 4 times what a regular root canal treatment costs and the whole period of treatment (root treatment and crown) lasted for 3.5 months. Concerning the second molar, I got really so bored of going there for that period of time and each time I prayed that she would start doing the filling but she didn't. The last time she was about to do the filling but found blood in the canals so she told me I needed more sessions and I didn't go back because I was really tired of it all. Three months later I went back, and the dentist told me that the decay had spread under the gum and that the molar had to be extracted by surgery. Now I have the molar extracted and I have to go through a process of molar implant 3 months later.
I decided to create an area on my website to focus on bad dentistry. Many people have kept quiet about the mistreatment of their teeth by dentists. I do not encourage people to avoid dentists, but in order to get people to go to the dentist, the dentist must provide excellent care. Unfortunately most do not. This list can help you find a good dentist.
Modern dentistry, in general, damages our teeth. It drills away too much healthy tooth structure. It places toxic materials in our mouths, and recommends treatments that don't last over the long term. Moving beyond bad dentistry means using the book, Cure Tooth Decay, to help you remineralize your cavities naturally.

Make sure to include the name you want posted on your testimonial, a little bit about yourself, and how you were harmed by bad dentistry. You do not need to remain silent about the harm done to your mouth. Because I do not want to be in the middle of any type of dispute I will not post the name of the bad dentist.

I was ready to have a tooth pulled and the dentist told me that I needed a root canal, but I had no money for either procedure. I was in pain and my cheek had already begun to swell. But after just over a month of following Ramiel's dietary protocols it is hard for me to feel which tooth was bothering me. Thanks a million to Ramiel Nagel for writing this book.

I purchased your book about a year ago and found it fascinating and encouraging. I am glad to learn of evidence that teeth which have suffered decay have the potential to heal over and remineralize to the point of avoiding extraction, root canals or other invasive treatments. - Pete
