Format: Paperback
Dr. Meinig was one of the founders of the root canal society. When he started, everyone was just pulling teeth out. Dr. Meinig and other dentists had a great idea to save teeth rather than remove them if they were infected. His organization used to be on the fringe, and then they worked hard to become mainstream.

At the time of the books writing over 24,000,000 root canals were done yearly. What Dr. Meinig urgently wanted to show people is that in many cases a root canal sets up the body to have chronic and degenerative disease. The reason is because the dentin tubules, the three miles of microscopic tubes in each tooth are not properly sealed in the procedure and basically the tooth can just rot in ones mouth and then leak out toxic material constantly into the body. Approximately 25% of root canals are healthy and don't have side effects. The exact number of root canals causing disease is not clear.

The book is very dense and mostly consists of a summary of Dr. Price's almost 1200 pages of careful research. Its goal seems to convince more the practitioner than the patient. That being said, if you have arthritis or heart disease, a root canal may be the cause. This is an important book.

Review is by Ramiel Nagel author of Cure Tooth Decay: Heal and Prevent Cavities with Nutrition (First Edition) & Healing Our Children: Because Your New Baby Matters! Sacred Wisdom for Preconception, Pregnancy, Birth and Parenting (ages 0-6).

Excellent book, detailed facts and recommendations about what I can do to prevent the need for a root canal or other dental surgery. And if I do need it what to look for in an oral surgeon. Would like to see doctors and dentists working more closely together to prevent life threatening illnesses as a result of dental surgery.

5.0 out of 5 stars EVERYONE needs to read this book 5 Jun. 2008
By Snoodely - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Certainly, anyone with root canals in their mouths, or anyone contemplating getting a root canal needs to read this book. But prepare yourself: You may never trust your dentist again.

On the other hand, you may discover the cause of your "mysterious" illness, and learn how to cure it. Meinig explains why root canals cause so many puzzling illnesses, and how removing your root-canaled teeth may cure those same illnesses. To put it concisely: ALL root canaled teeth are infected. And the very nasty bacteria causing those infections migrate to other parts of the body causing everything from cancer to multiple sclerosis. If you don't believe me, read the book and study the extensive documentation.

Meinig is not making this stuff up. He used to not only be an endodontist (a dentist specializing in root canals), but he helped found the American Association of Endodontists. To his great credit, Dr. Meinig had an open enough mind to let in information contrary to what he had been taught. He has thoroughly researched this information, not only convincing himself of the damage caused by root canals, but compelling him to write this book for us.

But, if you decide to have your root-canaled teeth pulled after studying this book, know that only a properly-educated dentist will know how to extract the root-canaled teeth so that the infection is entirely eradicated. I recommend you contact any one (or all) of the following organizations for a list of qualified dentists in your area:

Huggins Applied Healing -- 866-948-4638
The Environmental Dental Association -- 800-388-8124
The International Academy of Biological Dentistry and Medicine --

The dental schools and the American Dental Association do not have your best interests at heart. They have been causing illness, suffering, and death by refusing to acknowledge the damage done by conventional dental practices. Unfortunately, we therefore must educate ourselves. I recommend starting with this book and Robert Kulacz's excellent book, "The Roots of Disease." Your research may cause you cynicism and even anger when you learn what our dentists have been doing to us all these years -- and how much it will cost to UN-do their damage -- but take heart knowing that at least the damage CAN be un-done. I wish you good luck and good healing.

5.0 out of 5 stars helped me connect the dots... 19 Feb. 2010
By Len - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
After personally, going through some severe sudden unexplainable joint pain in my left knee in the last 5 months and coincidentally 4 out of 6 of my root canals started to fail, this book helped me to connect dots. I never imagined there was a possible correlation between my joint pain and my dental health until I goggled those topics together. Dr. Meinig's name and book kept popping up in my research. This book was instrumental in helping me to decide the difficult but necessary task to have all 6 of my root canals extracted and to my relief the pain is almost non-existent now(my last root canal extraction was 2 weeks ago). For those who are skeptical, I understand. I would have been if I had not gone through my own nightmare of unrelenting agony and sleeplessness. Please note, Dr Meinig does not suggest having root canals removed if a person is not experiencing any health issues, because some people have healthy immune systems and that makes all the difference. But for those who have compromised immune systems along with sudden unexplained health issues...then this book is worth reading and may help you make an informed decision.

5.0 out of 5 stars Staggering Implications 26 May 2009
By P. J. Sullivan - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a very important book. Its implications are staggering, in terms of human suffering and public health. Unless science learns how to sterilize bacteria inside dentin tubules, effectively and permanently, dead teeth will undermine systemic health. Because antibiotics cannot get in but toxins can get out.

Prevention therefore is the answer. The author discusses how to prevent tooth decay and explains why fluoride is not the answer. He discusses periodontal disease, its pH, and its relation to whole-body conditions.

For readers who are beyond prevention, he mentions jawbone cavitations, how to locate and treat them, and offers a short and simple protocol for dentists to follow in extracting teeth.

Dr. Weston Price deserved a Nobel prize. Instead, his work was shamefully covered up. For those who demand proof, his results are easily reproducible, but they are not refutable.

5.0 out of 5 stars was sick, now healthy 24 Aug. 2012
By Tom.CA - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Stinking coverup - pull the tooth & get an implant - costs about the same. About 1-1/2 yrs ago I had a root canal [age 63] and out of the blue started getting intestinal problems and 'cold/canker' sores in my nose - as soon as 1 went another came - must have had 12-15, also had flu like sore achy body w/ occasional arthritic type pain. All this has lasted 4 months and about 2 mos in I got the book & read it [had learned of it via other reading on -thyroid, iodine,nutrition etc]. Endodontist took an xray & it looked ok. Showed her the book and she said "Focal infection is only a theory" - no help. Truth is focal infection is generally accepted medically - except by dentistry which has done no research on it since W. Price did. The one dentist who did 20 years research is 'forgotten'. I had gotten his book (amazon) Nutrition and Physical Degeneration, by Weston Price DDS and recommend it highly as you will literally see what processed foods do to us - so many photographs you only need read a little. That's how I saw root canal book. Do you know today 80-90% (gov'tFDA) of the US population is malnurished even though plump? Anyway, I had to go to an Oral Surgeon to have the root tooth pulled due to possible dangers [my DDS referred} - cost 2x normal pull. All counseled no. I went with the truth after all else failed plus being 63 any danger from it later was a real motivator - read the book & understand. Only 7-10 days after pulling it my intestinal, cold/canker sore nose & achy flu like body all got well. Now about 4 weeks later I continue well as before my 'out of the blue' constellation of symptoms showed up [April 2012]. Going to have an implant later - total loss due to coverup & suffering $3,500. Read amazon reviews & get the Weston Price book above and Dr Starr's book, Hypothyroidism Type 2 as it's obvious we are being sickened for profit - really - why are we being fed goitrigens that suppress the thyroid which is the master gland of the body & leads to illness - fluoride [originally rat poison] in water & toothpaste[read back label] plus adding bromide to baked goods & removing iodine around 1986-7. Easiest way to defeat a nation/people is deny it iodine. The internet sure helps uncovering stuff.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book. I had a root canal that bothered ... 22 Dec. 2014
By BAM - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Best book. I had a root canal that bothered me for about 30 years. This past year I had it pulled (against my dentist's advice as he said nothing was wrong with it according to the X-rays.). But after he pulled it - he saw all the inner infection was around the tooth. I felt better instantly... Wish I would have read this book 30 years ago. When you suspect something is not right due to pain - trust your intuition.
