What is a Tooth Organ Relationship?  

Beitrags Menu

Have you ever wondered why you suffer from recurring headaches or why you just can’t get rid of your stomach problems? The trigger could be your teeth and root canals, because oral health can affect our organs and our overall health.

If individual teeth are diseased and are not treated in a timely manner, bacteria form. In the worst case, these spread through the teeth and gums throughout the body and can trigger various subsequent illnesses such as back problems or pneumonia.

Even serious illnesses such as a stroke or a heart attack can be caused by the bacteria that come from the mouth body connection.

Teeth are the cause of many chronic diseases

Teeth have a much larger function than just grinding food. Holistic dentistry clearly states that teeth can be the origin of numerous acute and chronic diseases.

This so-called tooth-organ relationship is particularly noticeable in chronic disease processes. Teeth are closely linked to both the human organism and its psyche. All three influence each other. The tooth-organ relationship can, for example, lead to a disturbed jaw joint triggering back and neck problems.

Each tooth is assigned to an organ

In traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) and some other alternative eastern medicine systems, it is believed that there are relationships between the teeth and certain organs in the body. These relationships are often presented in the form of “tooth-organ correspondences.”

Here are some examples:

  • Upper right incisor – liver
  • Upper left incisor – spleen
  • Upper right canine – gallbladder
  • Upper left canine – stomach
  • Upper right first molar – large intestine
  • Upper left first molar – lung
  • Upper right second molar – kidney
  • Upper left second molar – bladder
  • Lower right second molar – kidney
  • Lower left second molar – bladder
  • Lower right first molar – small intestine
  • Lower left first molar – heart
  • Lower right canine – small intestine
  • Lower left canine – heart
  • Lower right incisor – stomach
  • Lower left incisor – spleen

It is important to note that these energy flows are not recognized in conventional medicine and are based on traditional concepts.

Symptoms related to the tooth organ relationship

  • Toothache: Problems with a specific tooth can manifest as a toothache, which indicates an underlying organ problem.
  • Gum disease: Inflammation in the gums or periodontal disease can be a sign of problems in a related organ.
  • Chronic fatigue: A chronic feeling of fatigue can indicate problems in an associated organ. This is because the flow of energy is impacted.
  • Digestive problems: Problems with certain organs can manifest themselves in digestive problems such as flatulence, stomach pain or diarrhea.
  • Skin problems: Skin diseases such as acne, eczema or rashes can be associated with disorders in the associated organs.
  • Headaches: Chronic headaches or migraines can indicate underlying problems with the corresponding organs.
  • Emotional imbalances: Problems with an organ can lead to mood swings, irritability or depression.

Healthy teeth require a healthy organism

The teeth-organ relationship has been scientifically proven clearly. Reason enough to pay attention to your dental health, brushing and flossing, and avoiding diseases such as tooth decay or periodontal disease.

When considering tooth-organ relationships, it is important to take a holistic dentist approach that takes into account both conventional dental treatments and possible influences on the health of the organs. It should always be done in consultation with qualified professionals who can ensure comprehensive diagnosis and treatment.
