Case studies: on potential health effects
of oral and dental interference fields and focal infections
As early as 1895, Chalmer Prentice M.D. observed in his book "The Eye in its Relation to Health" that "frequently has it occurred in the experience of the dentist, that in removing a diseased tooth, he has also removed the immediate cause of a serious neuralgia, some form of headache or other nervous disorder..."
The following presents a growing collection of case studies illustrating exactly that - how (typically unnoticed, i.e. latent) infections in teeth, gums and/or the oral cavity can be crucially linked with the rest of the body - thus highlighting the major importance of this neglected field of research.
