The Focal Infection
It is shocking that physicians and dentists seldom investigate
the possible presence of other focal infection sources as
part of their preoperative bacterial endocarditis prevention
programs. Patients must be examined to determine the presence
of any infected teeth,gums,tonsil tags or other possible
sources of focal infection.
Then, too, in view of Dr. Price's work, patients should
be queried about any past root canal treated teeth, as they
may not only be a factor in the current disease problem,
but could actually be a cause of it. Martin H. Fischer,
M.D.,a prolific writer of medical books during the 1940s,had
this to say:
"Focal infection started in a tooth is obviously no
trivial matter! From it are destined to flow into the periphery
(other gland, organs and tissues) what amounts to unexpected
and acute orchronic invalidism at the best; at the worst,
Perhaps now we can truly evaluate how unfortunate it was
Dr. Price's research was covered up and buried all these
years. When you think of all the excellent research accomplished
by those mentioned in this chapter, it might lead you to
think this subject is now clarified and out in the open.
However, the fact is only a handful of dentists in the country
have any knowledge about Dr. Weston Price's work. Although
recent studies have been published in scientific journals,
I dare say very few dentists or physicians in the country
have read or know anything about their content.
Of course, both dentists and physcians are familiar with
the risks causing endocarditis by way of dental treatment,
but for most health professionals this book will probably
be their first introduction to the phenomenal extent of
the focal infection problem.
It has not been uncommon in the history of medicine for
a major advance in the cure of disease to be buried for
long periods of time as a result of controversy.
When the theoies behind a research endeavor become "dated,"
the inevitable question arieses as to what follow-up studies
have confirmed the original premises. In Dr. Price's case
there have been many; since then, 15 key studies are listed.
The following is summary of Dr. Price's comments about the
Buckley criticisms: "People are not living nearly the
entire span of life they have a right to expect. Death is
occurring even in our most civilized communities largely
from degenerative diseases, chief of which is heart disease.
Even the mortality statistics of our various communities
will at this time give an indication of the level and thought
of dental practice with regard to the management of infected
It is practically, if not entirely, a physical impossibility
to sterize infected cementum by treating through the dentin.
It is like trying to sterilize infection in the label on
the bottle by putting disinfectants in the bottle.
Root fillings do not continue to fill root canals. The
amount of space that ultimately develops is approximately
the amount of solvent used with the root filling material,
assuming that mechanical filling of every area was possible.
