A pulled tooth may indicate a problem in your organ that has come to the same area as the meridian where it is located. In short, the organ to which it is connected may be the source of the disorder. For example, an improperly performed root canal treatment can affect your lungs

Pain or dysfunction in one of your organs can cause problems with your teeth. In the same way, each tooth represents a separate organ, and the pain in that tooth affects that organ. When you have problems with a tooth, such as infection or caries, the organ on the same acupuncture meridian as this tooth can also become unhealthy. The opposite is also true; dysfunction in a particular organ can cause a problem with the corresponding tooth. Infections can exist at the root end of the teeth.

Sometimes it may not be detected by X-rays, especially on canal-treated teeth. Just like when you shake your tooth that has been treated for a long time with your hand to the right and left and tap it lightly, you feel pain or discomfort in that area. Toxins seep out of infections and suppress the normal functions of the immune system and can lead to diseases. Toxins leaking from the tooth root canals can cause systemic diseases of the heart, kidneys, uterus, nervous system and endocrine systems.


Acupuncturists follow a dental chart consisting of meridians to help them practice. In this chart, they have information about which tooth is effective on which organ or organs and on the same meridian. Using all of these connections, teeth can be used to diagnose and treat the part of the body they are connected to.

For example, the anterior incisors of the lower jaw are located on a meridian connected to the adrenal glands. Tenderness and pain in these teeth may indicate an imbalance in adrenal function.


Broken, infected, cracked, or dysfunctional teeth can give symptoms and disturb you in another part of your body. For example, an improperly performed root canal treatment on your second small molar in the upper jaw can affect your chest and lungs. A pulled tooth may indicate a problem in your organ that comes to the same area as the meridian where it is located. In short, the organ to which it is connected may be the source of the disorder.


A study in the journal Dental revealed the paradigm in dentistry that teeth are ’emotional organs’. Some receptors in our teeth control a number of nerve activities when we eat. These receptors determine how hard and fast we chew, and you inform our brain about it. These receptors are located inside the bundle of tissue removed during root canal treatment, where the nerves and vessels that we call the pulp of the tooth are located. These receptors are known as mechanical receptors. Mechanical receptors are filling organs that respond to mechanical stimuli such as tension, pressure, or vibration.

It is for these reasons that our teeth are not inactive for nerve communication, but because they are important, they provide unique sensory inputs that stimulate other biological processes. A study conducted in Finland has revealed that the genes responsible for the development of teeth are the same genes responsible for the development of other organs one by one. Genes involved in the growth and development of organs can be an indicator of the likelihood of cancer in the future. Researchers have seen that there is even a relationship between bacteria in the pulp of the tooth’s nerve vessel bundle, which we call, and the occurrence of breast cancer.


  • Pain in your front incisors may be a sign of a prostate or tonsil infection.

  • Chronic pain in the canine tooth can be a symptom of inflammation of the liver or gallbladder.

    Small molars may ache as a result of an allergic reaction, intestinal flora imbalance, pneumonia, or colitis.

    The lower canine teeth correspond to the circulatory system, and pain may indicate atherosclerosis and impaired lung function.

  • Pain in the lower large molars may indicate varicose veins, polyps in the colon, and respiratory diseases.


As a result of research on EXTERNAL root canals and their effects on systemic health, we understand how root canals increase the risk of all kinds of negative health, including:

  • Cardiovascular disease;Pain and suffering associated with inflammation of the bodyDiseases related to the brain

    Diseases of the nervous system

    Lowered immunity

  • Diabetes
  • Cancer and heart disease, including the reproductive organs (premature birth in pregnant women, including problems such as low birth weight), brain, joint diseases, such as some types of cancer diseases, dental diseases and universities with research it is demonstrated by an important factor.


  • Brush your teeth at least twice a day.

  • Use dental floss daily.

  • Have a detailed dentist examination every six months.

  • Change the toothbrush as needed or every three months.

  • Remove dead cells and bacteria using a tongue cleaner.

  • Limit acidic foods and drinks.

  • Drink plenty of healthy water.

  • Eat healthy foods.


A lot of diseases such as neck pain, low back pain, headache, tinnitus, chronic fatigue, allergies; can be cured after properly performed dental treatments. In many mental or physical defects observed after childbirth; in addition to hereditary features, there may also be the effect of heavy metals that the fetus receives from the mother’s teeth. The body is a whole, and teeth are a very important part of it. If the pain is not causing, there is no problem with the teeth, the logic is wrong. After all, if someone pulls out, there are 31 left, or we can continue our lives by wearing prostheses.

The logic causes many dental problems to be ignored, as well as problems with the entire body. Even though there is no pain in your teeth, you should definitely go to the dentist controls.
