Heal and Prevent Root Canals
When your dentist diagnoses you with the need for a root canal, you must decide if you really need one.
Is There An Infection?
If your tooth does not hurt, and you do not feel any pain, then it is likely that you do not have any tooth infection.
The diagnosis of a tooth root infection by a dentist comes from an x-ray or from observing symptoms. An obvious symptom which indicates a tooth infection is significant pain and inflammation.
Tooth With Infection Below the Root
Some signs of a tooth infection could be: very noticeable hot and cold sensitivity, swelling and pain, a bad taste in your mouth or small pockets of pus on the gum line.
If you do not have an infection, then what are the benefits of getting a root canal done? (Hint: There are none.) So avoiding endodontic treatment could be an option for you.
Special Foods Prevent Infection
I have found that following a careful diet almost always prevents your teeth from becoming infected.
My daughter had one tooth worn to the gum line. If you recall the website introduction, I became involved in seeking the cure for tooth decay, because my daughter had it.
Over several years, her teeth have become so strong as to show no signs of abscess (infection).
Previously, when she was both sick and ate the wrong foods, she had a small abscess on two separate occasions above one of the severely decayed teeth. The abscess looks like a white area of pus on the gums. This pus was an indication that food and other substances from her mouth penetrated through the teeth, into the root, causing an infection.
Through a careful diet, which included strictly avoiding all processed sugar and flour, and through an abundance of foods containing fat-soluble vitamins, like raw grassfed better, raw grassfed milk, grassfed liver, shellfish and other sea foods, bone broths, sea weed, and other special foods, her body was able to both eliminate those past infections and prevent future infections, despite the fact that some of her teeth were very compromised.
Explore some beginning dietary guidelines and a recipe to help heal and prevent tooth infections.
Herbal Treatments for Tooth Infections to Prevent a Root Canal
Plantain Poultice - Plantain, one of the most widespread weeds in the world is top for many ailments because it pulls toxins out of the body. Plantain is a astringent, soothing demulcent, and anti-inflammatory plant. A poultice is made by grinding or mincing the fresh plant and placing it on and around the infected area; a less effective one could be made from dried plantain. The poultice should be replaced frequently, and can be left on overnight. One individual who cured their infected tooth root had a severely swollen cheek down to his throat; he used plantain to help minimize the swelling.

There is an Alternative to Root Canal Surgery
Our body can protect itself from infection when we carefully eat foods that keep our body in balance. It requires the strictest of principles to follow such a diet. It does not always work, as it depends on your state of health and how much drilling and filling the tooth has had.
When you do this, you can heal infected teeth, and you can prevent decayed teeth from becoming infected, thus preventing the need for root canals.
Even if you get a root canal, there are still adverse effects that happen frequently, and these too can be limited through giving your body the fullest chance at stopping infection.
