The Stealth Killer: Is Oral Spirochetosis the Missing Link in the Dental and Heart Disease Labyrinth?
In today's cosmopolitan urban population, more than 51 percent of those with root canal-treated teeth probably have infection at the tip of their root. This figure represents millions of possible locations of dental infection. According to Dr. Nordquist's research, any source of bacteria with resulting chronic infection (including periodontal disease) in the mouth may potentially lead to heart disease and other systemic diseases. In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Nordquist takes you on the journey of decades of study that has led to one of the biggest medical breakthroughs of the past 50 years. In addition to discovering scientific facts and evidence, you will also find practical tips on how to get help from your dentist and how to properly take care of your mouth.
