Gum Disease & Lifesaving Tips #11

(1) Root Canal Disinfectants Prove Inadequate-Dr. George Meinig.
The Summary - The bacteria dentists use to determine whether treatment of a root canal infection has been successful, namely the absence of discomfortand pain; x-ray evidence that abscessed areas, granulomas and cysts have completely filled in withnew bone; and trust that the medicaments used in producing these results completely eradicated bacteria, all proved inadequate when such teeth were subjected to further testing by Dr. Price and his group.
Testing for the presence of bacteria in root canal, after the use of disinfectants which appeared to have controlled the infections, proved that the organisms had not been eradicated. Dr. Price, in making cultures after the use of over 100 different medicaments, including different strengths of each, found only eight which had negative responses after 24 hours, and only two after 48 hours of incubation; longer periods were found to be ineffective as medicaments lost their disinfecting power.

The two most efficient medicaments proved to be objectionable - silver nitrate because it turned teeth black and formalin because it was very irritating and painful to patients and destructive to surrounding tissues.

Though culturing to determine whether bacteria had been killed was formerly taught and practiced, I know of no dentists using such a testing procedure today.

Dr. Price in another series of tests took extracted infected teeth and treated them (much easier to do aseptically outside of the mouth) and found when these teeth were sectioned their dentin and cementum were still infected.

In still another investigation, Dr. Price made biopsy sections at and below the gum line and found bacteria present not only in the root of the teeth and their protective

cementum but also in the first millimeter or two of adjacent bone. The importance of this factor in causing cavitations in bone after extractions will be discussed in a later chapter.

Hi Sung,
This Duane in Hollywood . You know the guy that comes to your place to pick up my UGS in person. Here is my testimony: 1 have been using Ultimate Gum Solution for about 5 months now. I have had gum problems for years and spent so much money on dental work that it is just unbelievable. SInce I discovered this product, my gums havent been bleeding and my mouth has never been healthier. My dentist had advised me to get some antibiotic shots in my gums to kill the infections that were deep in my gums that ran 100 00 a shot. After using this product he was amazed that my gums were healthy and I no longer needed the shots. He asked "What did you do?" I recommend this product for everyone even if you havent had gums issues, this will no doubt fix and prevent gum problems in the future. THis product deserves 5 stars!!
