We read in the teeth about diseases ... Doctors are surprised by the accuracy of this method!
The tooth consists predominantly of a dentin with a cavity, covered outside with enamel and cement. The tooth has a characteristic shape and structure, occupies a certain position in the dentition, is built of special tissues, has its own nervous apparatus, blood and lymphatic vessels. Normally, a person has from 28 to 32 teeth. The absence of third molars, called the “wisdom tooth” is the norm, and the third molars themselves are already considered an atavism by an increasing number of scientists, but this is currently a controversial issue.
Inside the tooth is loose connective tissue, riddled with nerves and blood vessels (pulp). There are milk and permanent teeth - temporary and permanent bite. In the temporary bite there are 8 incisors, 4 canines and 8 molars - a total of 20 teeth. A permanent bite consists of 8 incisors, 4 canines, 8 premolars and 8-12 molars. In children, baby teeth begin to erupt at the age of 3 months. In the period from 6 to 13 years, milk teeth are gradually replaced by permanent ones. In rare cases, there are additional, complementary teeth (both dairy and permanent).
Not only tests, but also ... teeth can tell about diseases of internal organs. An experienced dentist can just look into the patient’s mouth to understand the condition of the heart or the gastrointestinal tract.
How does this method work and is it possible to predict illnesses simply by looking at the teeth?
Many of us know firsthand the feeling of an unbearable toothache, when it seems that the head, the heart and the stomach immediately suffer from one ruthless incisor. There are many “lucky ones” who are not saved by the appearance of caries and other dental pathologies either by high-quality toothpaste, a medical brush, or a rinse, or even a timely visit to the dentist. Perhaps, it is necessary to treat not the teeth, but other organs? For doctors practicing methodological treatment, there are no contradictions here - they know which tooth is responsible for which organ.

Tooth for an eye
Many of us know firsthand the feeling of an unbearable toothache, when it seems that the head, the heart and the stomach immediately suffer from one ruthless incisor. There are many “lucky ones” who are not saved by the appearance of caries and other dental pathologies either by high-quality toothpaste, a medical brush, or a rinse, or even a timely visit to the dentist. Perhaps, it is necessary to treat not the teeth, but other organs? For doctors practicing non-traditional methods of treatment, there are no contradictions here - they know which tooth is responsible for which organ.
So, problems with the gallbladder can result in the loss of one of the molars (seventh back teeth), and constantly aching canines tell about cholecystitis or the threat of hepatitis. If the relationship between teeth and other organs does exist, then it is almost impossible to prove it, says academic medicine. “Any tooth, being a problem, can give complications to other organs,” considers the periodontal surgeon Valery Kaminsky. “But it’s impossible to talk about a direct relationship between each individual tooth and a specific organ.” Decide who to believe - official medicine or the conclusions of the "populists" - but knowing the position of both sides will never hurt.
Keep the diagnosis behind your teeth
Even minor damage to the structure of the tooth can tell a lot. Of course, only a specialist and a detailed examination will give a complete picture of which tooth is associated with which organ and which problem it signals. But you can independently conduct a preliminary examination and compare the symptoms (see table.). To do this, consider the following:
- 1 The upper and lower incisors are judged on the condition of the kidneys, bladder, ears and organs of the reproductive system. Their poor condition may indicate chronic pyelonephritis, cystitis, otitis, tonsillitis, osteochondrosis, and even prostatitis.
- 2 Fangs are responsible for the liver and gallbladder, signaling cholecystitis and hepatitis.
- 3 Small molars (premolars) are lungs and large intestines. Problems with them can be caused by dysbiosis, colitis, allergies, chronic bronchitis or pneumonia.
- 4 Large molars (molars) are associated with the stomach, spleen and pancreas. Accordingly, the list of possible disease provocateurs is as follows: gastritis, ulcer, pancreatitis, anemia, antritis, tonsillitis, endocrine disorders, atherosclerosis, varicose veins and others.
- 5 Wisdom teeth "manage" the state of the heart, blood vessels and small intestine. Therefore, a dentist can also help in the treatment of coronary heart disease and even congenital heart disease. Joint pain also affects the condition of the front teeth of the upper and lower jaws.
“After thirty,” says dentist Igor Molozhanov, “many patients experience problems with the gums. If a person regularly takes care of the oral cavity, and at the same time the bleeding of the gums does not pass - you can confidently say that the problem lies in other organs. In women, for example, one of the signal signs of pathologies of the mammary glands is the so-called causeless gingivitis (inflammation of the gums). In children, gingivitis on the gums can manifest itself leukemia. Dentist session after session treats periodontal disease, while the child needs at least a blood test. ”
Getting sick - so together
If the teeth often deteriorate due to diseases of internal organs, then there is a feedback: problems with teeth lead to various disorders and diseases.
It is known that toothache can cause terrible headaches. Moreover, sore canine teeth and incisors of the upper jaw will bate in the forehead and temples, and the inflammation of the molars will give a dull pain in the back of the head.
Even the most common caries can cause permanent migraines. Periodontal problems (gums) contribute to the development of cardiovascular diseases, and pulpitis (inflammation of the dental nerve) provokes gastritis, colitis and cholecystitis.
On the rights of official
From the point of view of official (academic) medicine, any inflamed tooth, which is the source of infection, the so-called chroniosepsis, is a danger to the whole organism. “Problem teeth (with caries, destroyed or half-destroyed) entail a general decrease in immunity or outbreaks of infection in other organs,” explains the dentist Elena Legeza. But the connection between teeth and disease is not always provable. It is safe to say that with inflammation of the tooth in the gastrointestinal tract products come along with toxins. This causes a variety of diseases (depending on the state of human immunity) ranging from the usual indigestion and ending with gastritis. But to draw a parallel between the incisors and osteochondrosis, not one dentist will undertake.
“Painful symptoms affect the entire body,” says Valery Kaminsky, Candidate of Medical Sciences. - When a person has a toothache, the headache begins to hurt, the stomach or intestines, liver, bile ducts and even the heart suffer. The fact is that the dental nerve sends a signal to parts of the brain of the central nervous system and is associated with the nuclei of neighboring nerve cells, which respond to pain and transmit a signal to other organs. Moreover, the transmission of pain in each person is individual. But at risk, first of all, problematic, that is, unhealthy organs ”. Therefore, if you have chronic bronchitis, do not be surprised that, by running your teeth, you suddenly started to get pneumonia.
Igor Molozhanov, Head of the Department of Therapeutic Dentistry at the Kiev Institute of Traditional Medicine.
According to statistics, about 95% of people suffer from caries. By what tooth is affected, at what age and to what extent, a specialist can diagnose the development of a serious disease in a patient. For example, diabetes mellitus in the initial stages may also manifest as gum disease. The dentist may be the first doctor who diagnosed diabetes in a person due to a sharp deterioration of the gums.
A classic example of the connection of teeth with internal organs is the so-called liver tooth, when the teeth are destroyed due to pathologies of the stomach or liver (the same gastritis, pancreatitis, etc.). But dentists are aware of other relationships.
There are three periods in the life of the teeth. Therefore, the correct diagnosis depends on the age of the patient.
In case of disorders of the gastrointestinal tract and the liver: children of 8–10 years old suffer from the sixth and frontal teeth (first, second, third), and in adults, the sixth and seventh teeth are destroyed first.
In the pathology of the respiratory system: in children with pathology of the adenoids, tonsils and polyps, the first, second teeth of the upper and lower jaws are affected, less often the canines. In adults, bronchitis, pneumonia and even asthma are reflected in the first and second teeth of both jaws.
Diseases of the urinary system: in adolescence and up to 25 years the fourth, fifth teeth of the lower jaw are responsible for them. In adults, diseases of the fifth and sixth teeth of both jaws begin.
