No more toothache

Four years ago I had some pain on one side of my mouth, and several months later a molar fell out. Then another tooth began to ache, so I asked a dentist to advise me. After his examination and an X-ray, he told me that this tooth also needed to come out, so I allowed him to extract it. At the time, there were at least two other teeth that were also causing a little discomfort.

When I returned home, I really questioned my thinking and what I trusted concerning my body. Although I respected the sincere young dentist, I knew that his educational background was in material observations and analysis relating to the human mouth and in theories concerning dental deterioration from usage and age.
