We all trust our dentists to do the best job possible, regarding them as professionals in their field, while often not even questioning their methods.
However, we may have made a mistake there. In this article, we will speak about the importance of wisdom teeth and may come just in time for someone to reconsider his decision and not just listen to the dentist.
Many of us have been told that wisdom teeth need to be extracted just because they are not really needed. According to the dentists, they are just unnecessary teeth that just inconveniently crowd out mouths.
Wisdom teeth, also called the Third Molars, are the furthest back teeth. They usually come in when you are in your late teens or early twenties.
In the U.S., 5 million people undergo preventative wisdom teeth removal each year. However, about two-thirds of all wisdom teeth removals in the U.S. are unnecessary. Wisdom teeth removal result in a lot of discomforts, pain, and swelling. Moreover, they can sometimes cause serious complications.
In the 1900s, Dr. Weston A. Price did extensive research on the connection between oral health and diseases. He discovered native tribes, with their traditional diets, that were almost 100 percent free of tooth decay.
Hence, he concluded that dental and overall health lie in nutrition. Luckily, this discovery is followed by holistic dentists nowadays, as they understand that when you supply enough nutrients to the jaw bone during its development, all 32 teeth will have proper space in your mouth without crowding. This means that proper nutrition is the key behind trouble – free wisdom teeth.
Why you need your wisdom teeth
Out teeth are vital, living organs within and connected to the body as a whole. According to acupuncture meridians, wisdom teeth are connected to our small intestine and the front of our pituitary gland. In fact, 46 percent of the motor and sensory nerves in your brain’s cerebral cortex are interconnected to your mouth and face. Therefore, the extraction of a tooth disturbs and breaks an acupuncture meridian that flows through the area of that tooth.
Moreover, that procedure can also be very dangerous. This was proved by the fact that between 57,000 and 175,000 people after wisdom teeth extractions have had permanent tingling, prickling or numbness caused by nerve damage, which again shows that all of our teeth are connected via nervous system pathways to every part of our body.
So for all these reasons, we do not recommend removing wisdom teeth unless there is a good reason to do so!
