Our teeth are very important and we must take good care of them. Even the smallest problem with our teeth can be tied to a specific health issue. You might not believe this, but our internal organs are actually closely related to our teeth. In this article, we’re going to discuss about that.
Our bladder, kidney and ears are connected to our lower and upper incisors, while our gallbladder and liver are connected to our canine teeth.
According to various experts, our molars are connected to our stomach, pancreas and spleen, the color and lungs are connected to the premolars and our small intestine as well as our heart are connected to our wisdom teeth.
Still, even if our teeth are damaged it doesn’t mean that our internal organs are damaged, too. Patients feel pain around damaged, removed or even healthy teeth.
This kind of pain is called “phantom pain” and it appears because the organ which is damaged sends signals to its corresponding tooth. If you are familiar with the connection of teeth and organs, you’ll be able to treat the problem easily.
Here are some suggestions:
- Pyelonephritis, cystitis or otitis reflect in the lower and upper incisor
