I chipped my tooth, the dentist reattached it. Now the tooth is feeling funny and the dentist said I might need a root canal. Can your program heal my tooth?
Root canals are a highly overprescribed treatment. A root canal in my opinion should be used as a last resort. Root canals are not preventative treatments. They are heroic measures to save a dying tooth.
A tooth that has been hit, is damaged. It can in some cases be so injured that the nerve within the tooth dies. A dead tooth looses its awareness of temperature, and can turn gray.
There are non-root canal treatments for a chipped tooth, using bonding materials. This is what your dentist did, he bonded something onto your tooth. That itself could make your tooth feel funny if the material was not biocompatible.
While I wish I could promise you success, each case in trying to heal a difficult and injured tooth is an adventure. Cure Tooth Decay contains the best information on the subject matter of healing teeth, but that does not guarantee it will work for your situation in a way you had hoped. It will definitely help you limit the chance of a tooth infection, and the tooth pulp can protect itself and heal better when nutrition is optimal, and that takes making changes.
Chipped Tooth Second Answer
If I chipped my tooth I wouldn't get a root canal. I would wait to see if an infection would happen, or if their was swelling. It really depends on how bad the chip is. Eating foods as described in my book, especially foods high in fat-soluble vitamins will help the problem. See the help of a good dentist, such as from the Holistic Dental Association. Holistic minded dentists can use bonding material, homeopathy and other less toxic treatments to deal with chips, even severe ones without a root canal. Root canals as a precautionary treatment, I think that's a bad idea (in most cases.) Again, your wisdom first, I don't know your exact situation, so choose what is right for you.Tooth Decay Support Main Page

"The practical advice in this book really seems to be reversing my tooth decay!!! Hallelujah brother!!! The dentist wanted me to have two major root canals immediately and two other teeth filled. When I asked him if there was anything I could do with nutrition or supplements to get mu teeth to heal, he said "maybe you could slow the decay down a little bit" but that essentially the answer was no.
That dental visit was three mobnths ago and my teeth have stopped aching all together, are way less temperature sensitive, and feel generally stronger.
Most of us have been totally disempowered regarding the health of our teeth. This information has changed that for me. I bought the book for $28 anyway though. What a bargain, The dental work was going to cost well over $4000.00 no wonder dentists don't seem open to this stuff working! Talk about a biased perspective!!!
Think I'm excited, you will be too if you use this info to take tooth health into your own hands!"

"Not only is Cure Tooth Decay a practical guide to teach parents how to raise healthy children (with healthy teeth), it is also a helpfull tool for adults who have suffered with poor dental health and/or chronic disease. I would also highly recommend this book to people who are looking for things they can do to protect their bones, and their overall health, as they age. In other words, this book is a must read for everyone interested in improving their health." Pam Killeen New York Times nestselling Author
"Ramiel, You (along with Weston Price) saved my teeth. Was supposed to get a root canal (which I had no money to pay for). Tooth was in pain. After three weeks on the diet I can feel a big difference, tooth doesn't hurt now and feels like it's healing. Thanks so much. Unbelievable!" - Leroy, Utah
My cavity has gotten smaller! Once you are set free from being a slave to modern foods of commerce author continues to explain how the ancient people ate. They were healthy, strong and good looking. They had no cavities. They had no illness until familiar western culture came to visit them. If you are reading this review I am sure you understnad something is not right in the world. That we are born to live under a certain hypnosis. That we are taught to give away our responsibility to "people with authority", and those people cannot even take care of themselves. I recommend this book if you want the way out."Ranko, Croatia
