Bad Dentistry - Stress and Bad Dentistry
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.
General health: excellent, many hobbies, exercise regularly
Dental history: extensive dental work in the past, incl. orthodontia, porcelain crowns, bonding (to close a gap between front incisors), x-rays, fillings
Today's face: broken fillings, 2 gaps from lost molars
Today's protocol: self-treating the last few years with flossing, water pik, probe, morning "swishing" (swish peanut oil until it turns white, then brush carefully w/ baking soda), brushing with comfrey powder at night, soaking with colloidal silver
My story: A few years ago a dead upper molar whose abscess had finally drained broke off when I forgot the situation and took a huge bite out of an apple before dashing to work. The nasty little black stub sticking out of the open hole looked horrifying, not to mention the financial implications!
A dentist known for his philanthropy and kindness took me in, the office kindly accepted the payment plan I was able to fulfill, and a treatment plan was outlined for the future since I hadn't seen a dentist in about 5 years.
The problem: The dentist said a lower tooth needed removal as well and I wasn't surprised because I had been watching the decay progress. When I went in for that, the first thing going on was a struggle to remove a crown -- not from the tooth I was expecting! It literally took hours and a vast struggle to get that tooth out. Why, if it was so rotten? The dentist said it was "erupting."
Now that I really looked funny and wouldn't be able to eat properly, the dentist outlined a plan of thousands of dollars of work on the other teeth (including the rotten one that I had thought was to be removed) that must be completed before anything could be done to fill those gaps.
In my field you don't work at all unless you're looking good, so I lost that job of course and have had no dental work at all. In the stress of trying to figure out how to pay my taxes now I have in the last two weeks lost a huge filling out of a back molar and had an abscessed incisor on the other side.
I'm scared to go to any dentist now, and to pay him I'd have to use the (incomplete) tax money I do have. Hmmmm... Is it true that dental care is free for psych ward patients?
Now, with advice and comfort from you and friends, the swelling from the abscessed upper incisor has gone down considerably. We had goldenseal on hand already for the poultice you recommended -- thanks! The charcoal poultice my friends recommended was comforting but it was a mess! I did finally seem to get dramatic relief when I poured colloidal silver up my nose. My friends told me later they had prayed. Everybody's waiting now to hear screaming from that broken rear molar. Lord, have mercy!
Ramiel Nagel's (author of Cure Tooth Decay) comments:
The dentist took advantage of this person who needed help. He made the situation worse by pulling out a tooth that didn't need to be removed. Another story of dental profits before care.
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.
You can submit a story about how dentistry has negatively harmed your life by sending an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org
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.

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.
