Diagnosis and Treatment of Focal Oral Infection



Biological Dentistry Continued

The next area of concern in Biological Dentistry is that of hidden or residual infection to include areas of necrosis and chronic inflammation. Collectively these areas are called "Dental Interference Fields or Foci." This is dentistry's most ignored area for meaningful and effective therapeutic contributions in resolving chronic disease. A focus or dental interference field is a diseased change in the soft connective tissue containing un-processable material causing the local and general defense reactions to be in a continuous state of active conflict. This can lead to abnormal distant effects far removed from the original source and is most often chronic in nature.

      Dear Farid,

    In this issue I would like to continue to talk about another aspect of Bilogical Dentistry namely Focal Oral Infection.


  • Focal Oral Infection

    Focal oral infection can originate from

    • Gum disease
    • Tooth abscess
    • Root canaled teeth with infection
    • Extraction site (cavitation)

    When teeth, bone, and gums become inflamed because of trauma, fracture, decay or contaminated with bacteria, they becomes a focus of infection or irritation. In the 1930's, a dental researcher, Dr Weston Price, implanted infected teeth into healthy rabbits. The rabbits came down with the same medical symptoms as those of its host. The rabbits exhibited heart, kidney, lung or other similar symptoms as manifested by the host. Dr. Price concluded that the toxins produced by the infected tooth found there way into the blood stream and was capable of causing disease within specific organs. In the 1940's, the medical and dental professions both recognized such problems as valid and provided the basis for recommendations of tooth removal. In recent years a French medical/dental physician and researcher, Agnes Koubie, discovered that even a tooth whose pulp became inflamed from routine dental drilling could serve as the source for far removed arthritic type pains. If the distant pain resolved after injecting a local anesthetic around the offending tooth, Dr. Koubie concluded that the tooth was the underlying cause.

  • Diagnosis and Treatment of Focal Oral Infection

    A thorough clinical and radiographical examination can reveal any Focal Oral Infection site.

    • Gum Disease

    Gum Disease is a very well researched and documented oral diaease that we treat routinely in any dental office. Probably the most effective weapons against gum disease are proper daily oral hygiene practices and your regular cleaning.

    • Tooth Abscess & Root canaled tooth infection

    Teeth abscesses are detecetd either by routine dental radiographs or they are usually associated with toothache. Radiographs can also help with diagnosis of root canaled tooth infection, also bioenergetic testing and applied kinesiology is a great help in this area since they are usually symptom free. The treatment is the elimination of the infection at the apex of the tooth either by Biological Root canal treatment or by tooth extraction.

    • Cavitation

    The diagnosis of Cavitation is not as easy. A machine called Cavistat can help. The treatment is a very special surgical procedure.
