Bacteria Involved in Dental Infections

Bacteria Involved in Dental Infections

The Bacteria and Other Microorganisms that are Involved in Dental Infections.
This article is part of Dr. George Meinig's, DDS, FACD, research information of the extensive and investigative research of Dr. Weston Price's research work.

A crucial factor in root canal infections is the role of bacteria. Dr. Price and the Research Institute's bacteriologists and other key works isolated the same streptococcus, staphylococcus, and spirochete families of organisms from the teeth and mouth as investigators find today. Although any one of these organisms could be causative of oral infections people suffer, they found that over 90 percent of the time the bacteria involved were of the streptococcus species.

It will surprise you to learn that when a dentist cuts only the enamel of a tooth, no pain is involved unless the tooth becomes overheated by a fast moving drill or diamond stone. Once the dentin just under the enamel is contacted, however, most people experience discomfort. While it was previously believed there are no nerve fibers in dentin, electron-microscope studies of the dentin tubules now show they do contain very fine nerve fibers.

The dentin isn't as hard as enamel because it is composed of tiny hollow tubules, so small they can be seen only through a microscope. These dentin tubules have a number of characteristics and functions which are very important to our understanding the process of tooth infection.


A close friend first introduced me to your product and I figured it was one of those "Miracle Products" that work for those on the Home Shopping Network but not for the rest of the world. You know, - too good to be true? Well I requested a bottle for myself figuring, well, it's all natural, can't hurt. . . and the painful swelling of my gums disappeared! The nights I'd spend awake due to the horrible pain were over!

Thanks to the Ultimate Gum Solution!! You can be sure your business will improve due to word of mouth from this customer.

Please, let us consumers know if you ever plan on discontinuing this product, so we can stock up first.
