I recently learned about root canals being a safe haven for microbes... and possibly being a cause of re-occurring cancer or other diseases.
I learned all this just after I had my first root canal. *grumble*
However, according to oil pulling.com, the oil (that was held in your mouth) can be put under a microscope and one can find microbes in early stage of development. So, wouldn't this help in the case above... to remove those microbes? I'm trying to figure out if this would be effective rather than having to pull the root-canal-ed tooth out.
If so, would oil pulling be just as effective if the tooth had a veneer or crown? Could the "pull" through porcelain (or whatever the veneer or crown is made from)?
I haven't found enough information on this.
