Many dentist promote extraction of the final molars (third molars) that comes out during our late teens or early 20’s. Extracting your wisdom teeth is unnecessary. There are many articles covering this lately.
Mike Adams exposes this dental scam in one of his earlier articles.
Many dentist claim that extraction is necessary because of overcrowding. The sad truth is that this is incorrect. Overcrowding of teeth exist because of improper growth of the jaw and the palate which is usually due to poor nutrition as stated by Dr. Weston A. Price, M.S., D.D.S., F.A.G.D. through his research. Because of the improper formation of the jaw and palate the teeth has no room to grow out properly.
All your teeth exist for a reason. One of the function of teeth is to shape the face. More importantly, your teeth are living tissues and they interact with the body in some way. Your body function as a whole unit. Every part of your body has a purpose. In acupuncture and TCM (Traditional Chinese Medicine) this is strongly promoted. This chart identifies each teeth correlation with the body through the theory of TCM.
Because of this acupuncture can be used to stop toothaches. A good point for this is LI4 (Hegu.) You can apply strong pressure (acupressure) on this point to relieve toothaches because your Large Intestine channel crosses the face where your teeth is embedded.
A good acupuncture treatment is very relaxing and in many ways better than a massage. Therefore acupuncture is great for treating anxiety before seeing a dentist. Acupuncture is slowly being accepted in dentistry.
