Rescued By My Dentist

By Douglas L. Cook, DDS

Summary: This book shows the influence of the oral cavity on human health. Such commonplace things as high-speed drilling, use of mercury fillings and other toxic restorations, the root canal treatment of teeth, and infected jawbones, all serve as unsuspected causes of much, and perhaps most, of the sicknesses and the ailments in our society. The author describes cutting-edge technology that allows the practitioner to pick compatible dental materials and helps to find which teeth are causing havoc in the body and to locate the infected regions in the jawbone.
