The answer is a resounding yes. More than you could even possibly fathom.
Even more disturbing is that scientists have been warning dentists about the dangers of this procedure for the past 100 years.
Unfortunately, your dentist may not even fully understand the health and beauty ramifications of this dental procedure because they are not taught about it in dental school.
The reason I am writing about this today is because of a horrifying personal experience that not only put my husband’s life in jeopardy, but compromised his immune system and greatly accelerated the aging process. (I share the full story down below)
The good news is that he has made a full recovery.
The procedure I am talking about is a root canal.
What your dentist most likely will not tell you about a root canal:
- During a root canal, there is no way to sterilize your tooth
- Dangerous bacteria hide out in the tooth and are unreachable with antibiotics
- Root-canaled teeth harbor bacteria that morph into very toxic forms, which then can migrate to other tissues in your body, causing serious medical conditions.
- There is no other medical practice that permits leaving a dead body part inside your body, because it triggers your immune system to attack
What does this mean for ageless beauty?
At the very least, it means extra inflammation in the body. Inflammation is the #1 cause of aging.
At the very worst, it means that your immune system is constantly having to work to keep the inflammation in check, weakening your immune system. A weakened immune system may not be strong enough to fight off serious illnesses and diseases.
In fact, according to Dr. Mercola,
97% of all fatal cancer sufferers have 1 thing in common, they had root canals.

Why a Root Canal is a Dangerous Dental Procedure
Now for the shocking sequence of events that my husband and I experienced:
My husband had a root canal about 10 years ago. The dentist and the root canal specialist never gave us any indication in regards to the danger of root canals or even the approximate “life span” of a root canal.
Due to a chronic illness that my husband has had, I have been doing a ton of research. I have known for quite some time that he should have the root canal tooth out, even though he has never experienced any pain or issues in the mouth.
You know how it is though. You get busy with life and work and the last thing you want to do is to take time off to get a tooth that seems to be fine taken out.
Last week, Sam was in New York on business and experienced pain in the root canal area for the very first time. So I jumped through hoops to find an oral surgeon that could take out the root canal right away.
Interestingly enough, by the time he got home there was no more pain and he wanted to reschedule the surgery for another time.
Of course I said no way, not after what I went through to get this scheduled. (Usually it is a 3 week process.)
The first thing the Beverly Hills Oral surgeon did was take a special x-ray that can show infection. Sure enough, the entire area of the root canal showed an infection.
The surgeon immediately took the root canal out. He came in to the waiting room to tell me that the infection was much worse than the x-ray had shown. The infection had traveled up into the sinus cavity, leaving a hole the size of a quarter. The infection was then draining back down into the body.
Talk about a drag on the immune system, not to mention the huge amount of inflammation which causes accelerated aging.
The surgeon said this was quite serious, with the infection being so close to the brain and that this infection had been growing for well over a year.
The scary part, is that it was so silent, so painless. There are no nerves in a root canal, therefore no pain.
So I asked the Beverly Hills Surgeon how often he sees infected root canals. He said “every day of the week”.
He also told me that the average life span of a root canal is just 5 years.
Well I don’t know about you, but I find all of this quite shocking for many reasons that I could rant and rage about, but won’t.
I just want you, my ageless beauty reader, to know about this crucial information so you can make an informed decision. After all, when it comes to ageless beauty, your health is everything.
