Health Effects Related to Root Canal Teeth and Cavitations
- Medical studies and clinical results have found that many chronic, degenerative health conditions are dental-related. (There are also other causes, and the effects are cumulative and synergistic). The main causes include mercury from amalgam fillings, infections from root canaled teeth (most are infected), and cavitations (chronically infected tooth extractions sites or root-canal sites), as well as gingivitis and periodontitis (infected gums). Oral infections have been found to be factors in cardiovascular disease, heart conditions, stroke, and arthritis, among other conditions.
- Extremely high levels of mercury have been found to accumulate in the gums, oral mucosa, and saliva of those with amalgam fillings or metal crowns over amalgam, causing chronic oral conditions and distribution of mercury to all organs of the body through the blood.
- Mercury, root-canaled teeth, and cavitations are common causes of chronic conditions, and most with conditions such as CFS, fibromyalgia, MS, and depression recover when they deal with whichever of these is affecting them.
- Most wisdom tooth extraction sites have cavitations, which can be extremely toxic systemically and cause disabling conditions such as cancer, CFS, MS, ALS, Parkinson’s, rheumatoid arthritis, and cardiovascular disease. Most root canaled teeth likewise accumulate bacteria and become toxic over time, causing the same kinds of conditions.
- Dental amalgam is the largest source of mercury in most people with mercury amalgam fillings. Most with several amalgam dental fillings or metal crowns over amalgam get mercury exposure above the government health guidelines and are affected over time, which commonly causes or is a major factor in such conditions. Some are more susceptible than others and are more seriously affected or sooner affected, but all who have them are affected to some measurable degree over time. Tests are available for measuring exposure and effects such as immune reactivity, metabolic effects, enzymatic blockages, improperly functioning detox pathways, mineral imbalances, and other factors in these conditions.
- In surgical clinical trials of FDA and medical school, approximately 80% of wisdom tooth extraction sites were found to have cavitations. (The population tested may not be identical to the general population, but it was a large group.) Likewise, FDA clinical trials by the Cavitat found similar numbers, with follow-up surgical treatment. Most such sites have cavitations, which can cause serious health effects not commonly diagnosed with respect to the real cause. The sites are often relatively pain-free, but there are major systemic effects from bacterial toxins and infection. They can also cause major pain (NICO). Treatment options include surgery, sanum therapy via Stabadent, and photon lumen (LED) or low level laser treatment.
- Bioassay tests at the dental labs of Dr. Boyd Haley and Dr. Jerry Bouquot have found similarly high toxicity in root canaled teeth, which also are commonly found to have cavitations. Years of research by Dr. Weston Price and other prominent doctors documented the same. Thousands of people who have had cavitation surgery or proper extraction of root canaled teeth have recovered from disabling chronic conditions such as those mentioned above.

DAMS is currently working with thousands of people in the U.S. dealing with serious health effects caused by exposure to mercury from amalgam and urges everyone to find out more about this major problem and to get involved in resolving these health safety issues. DAMS can provide information and help to anyone who is interested or who thinks they might have health problems related to their amalgam fillings.
