Conventional Dentistry's Losing Battle Against Bacteria
When the disease, as caries is our enemy, we must fight it. We create war and, thus, internal and external conflicts. Conventional dentistry engaged in this struggle. Bacteria are the enemy and your mouth is a battle field. However, no matter how much money you spend on dental care, the war against bacteria, it seems, will never be won.
Modern system of dentistry evolved from the combination of beliefs that tooth decay is caused by bacteria such as Streptococcus mutans) and the belief that the bacteria eat the food in his mouth and produce acid, which causes tooth decay. Dentistry then aims to control bacterial growth in your mouth for the treatment and prevention of dental decay. Dentistry in the war against the bacteria can be summarized as follows:
- You should brush your teeth all the time to address this "disease-causing bacteria.
- You should rinse your mouth chemicals to eliminate the more "dangerous" bacteria.
- You should floss to liquidate the remaining bacteria and food particles.
- When these three tactics do not work, you have to pay the dentist to remove bacterial invasion of drilling.
- When the drill is unable to remove bacteria and bacterial growth progresses, the root of the tooth can become infected.
This requires a root canal to try and clear of bacteria inside the tooth.
- Finally, when all these procedures will not be able to save the tooth alive the expected onslaught of bacterial invaders, the tooth should be removed and false teeth or no teeth is what remains.
By the time the sixth stage, even after spending thousands of dollars on dental care, the war was lost. No matter how much you spend money, or how much is your dentist drilling your teeth, the treatment of oral remains elusive. The current procedures do not limit any pain and suffering, but if the main cause of caries (in your diet) is not solved, then your teeth continue to deteriorate.
