Although many of us have already pulled out our wisdom teeth, trusting our dentists to do the best job, we will speak of the importance of wisdom teeth. Some people may change their minds about listening to their dentist and keep their wisdom teeth.
Dentists usually tell us that wisdom teeth are not needed and unnecessarily crowd our mouths and that they should be pulled out.
Let us reconsider this.
Wisdom teeth, also called the Third Molars, grow furthest back in the mouth in the late teens or early twenties.
There was a report in the American Journal of Public Health that said that over 67% of the wisdom teeth removals are unnecessary. In other words, out of 10 million wisdom teeth removals, only 20 we actually necessary.
Also, the claims that wisdom teeth trigger illnesses were proved not to be true. However, the extraction of wisdom teeth is a large dental business in America, bringing around billion dollars every year.
Dr. Weston A. Pierce investigated the connection between oral health and diseases in 1900s and discovered that native tribes with their diets were nearly 100% without tooth decay.
From this he concluded that dental and overall health, depend on nutrition. Holistic dentists these days know that when you give enough nutrients to your jaw bone when it is developing, all 32 teeth will grow without crowding which means that the right nutrition is the solution for wisdom teeth issues.
Dr. Weston also noticed that when the tribes started using sugar and white flour, their teeth started deteriorating.
Also, a Californian dental consultant, Jay Friedman, discovered that over two thirds of the wisdom teeth removals are medically not necessary and that the majority of the patients would have been perfectly fine if they kept them.
The meridian acupuncture system which is known in the Traditional Chinese medicine for more than 5000 years showed that there is an essential connection between your teeth and your joints, spinal segments, vertebrae, organs and endocrine glands. According to this medicine, our wisdom teeth and our small intestine and the front of our pituitary gland are connected.
46% of your brain’s cerebral cortex’s motor and sensory nerves are connected to your face and mouth. Logically, the removal of a tooth disrupts the acupuncture meridian that flows through the area of that tooth.
In addition, the procedure can be very dangerous and can sometimes lead to a sudden death.
Between 57,000 and 175,000 people after wisdom tooth removal, experienced permanent tingling, prickling or numbness due to nerve damage. This again proves that our teeth are connected with every part of our body though a nervous system.
So, we can conclude that the extraction of wisdom teeth shouldn’t be performed except in cases when it is really necessary.
