Your teeth in the mouth correspond to certain organs and systems. A broken, infected or cracked tooth can also make the organ it represents unhealthy.

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 experience problems such as an infection or caries related to your tooth, the organ on the same acupuncture meridian as this tooth may 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.

If you feel pain or discomfort in that area when you shake your long-ago treated tooth with your hand to the right and left and tap it, ‘This has been a root canal treatment for my tooth, why does it still hurt?’ have you ever asked yourself or your Turkey clinic doctor. Toxins seep out of infections, suppressing 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.


Acupuncture specialists and practitioners follow a dental chart consisting of meridians to help them practice. With this chart, they will have information about which tooth has an effect on which organ or organs and is on the same meridian. Using all of these connections, teeth can be used to diagnose and treat the part of the body to which they are attached. For example, the anterior incisors in the lower jaw are located in a meridian connected to the adrenal glands. Tenderness and pain in these teeth may indicate an imbalance in adrenal function. Your teeth in the mouth correspond to certain organs and systems. Broken, infected, cracked or dysfunctional teeth; It can give symptoms and disturb you in another part of your body.

For example, an improperly performed root canal treatment on the second small molar in the upper jaw can affect your chest and lungs. Sometimes you experience so-called ‘Phantom pain’ in your previously pulled tooth areas. This experience may be one of the examples that best explains the connection between teeth and other body organs along the meridians that we have just have. A tooth that has been removed cannot cause pain in this area if there is no infection inside, that is, part of the bone, or if it has not been cleaned. A pulled tooth can also 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 attached can be the source of the ailment.


A study 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 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, and they are known as mechanical receptors.


Mechanical perception is the perception of contact, perception, conscious touch or mechanical displacement caused by stimuli outside the body. Mechanical receptors are filling organs that respond to mechanical stimuli such as tension, pressure, or vibration. For these reasons, 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. It should also be noted that I am sure that in the future more research will be conducted on these issues, and a link Dec be found between abnormal tooth development and cancer.


Biological dentistry is a term coined by the International Society of Oral and Toxonomy. Do this in the safest, least toxic way and as gently as possible on the patient’s biological terrain, in order to achieve the treatment mission, which has always been all the goals of modern dentistry. A more biocompatible approach to oral health is the hallmark of biological dentistry. A holistic approach to dentistry is to accept the mouth and teeth as part of the rest of the body, and not to isolate them. Knowing the connection between the teeth and the meridians, you may want to find a dentist who will treat your toothache more completely and Decisively.


Pain in your front incisors can be a sign of 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 can indicate atherosclerosis and impaired lung function.

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

Has it ever occurred to you after reading this? You went to a dentist. You said, ‘That area where my tooth is hurts’.

Your dentist in Turkey who took an X-ray, did a clinical examination, said, ‘Your tooth is intact’. Your pains have continued. So you went to another dentist and had your tooth removed. Unfortunately, there have been many patient stories that we have listened to like this. So we need to know the connections well and do the routing well.
