Rotten Eggs and Oral Infections

There is research that shows that bacteria found inside dead teeth were potentially the most pathogenic (disease causing) of all bacteria in the mouth. These bacteria are called "anaerobes", which means they live without oxygen (the bacteria in a rotten egg are anaerobes). The toxins that these bacteria release not only produce bad odors but cause severe inflammatory response in peoples immune systems. The inflammatory response is a side effect of the bacterial infection and if the bacteria are eliminated the disease process can be stopped.

Some of the signs that these bacteria are present are bleeding gums, bad breath, or a bad taste in the mouth. If the bacteria are getting into the bone from a dead tooth, there may be no symptoms except that the tooth may be discolored.

Fortunately we have modern diagnostic tests to determine if a patients mouth is infected with these health endangering bacteria. Furthermore, if the bacteria are identified, we have state-of-the-art protocols and equipment to eliminate them.
