It turns out this view is entirely wrong, as research continues to confirm strong links between the health of the mouth, especially gums and teeth, with the rest of the body’s internal organs and systemic health.
So how does it affect your health when you keep a dead tooth in your mouth for years, even a lifetime after a root canal procedure?
Find out the health risks associated with root canals and chronic oral infections and how they could be linked to health conditions you would never suspect!

Suffer from PMS? Maybe a steak is the cure!
In the first ever study to evaluate the association between dietary mineral intake and the development of premenstrual syndrome (PMS), it has been found that women who consume high levels of iron are between 30-40% less likely to develop PMS than those who consume lower levels.
It was found that women in the highest intake group for non-haeme iron (the form found primarily in plant foods and supplements) had a relative risk of PMS of 0.64 compared to women in the lowest intake group.
The level of iron intake at which the effect is evident was greater than 20mg per day.
