      While I think that it can be a problem, that video is way over the top in claiming root canals alone cause the bulk of the diseases mentioned. I have had several root canals, and one evidently didn't get everything. A couple of years later I got some swelling at that location and eventually was referred to a specialist who told me that 10% or so root canal procedures miss something. Some teeth have an extra root that is hard to see/locate. If one or more of a person's roots decay, what option is there beyond a root canal? None that I know of that are generally available to the public unless you want to pull the tooth. Even then some root material might remain behind. Sometimes getting a tooth pulled is the only option, and then an implant can make good sense. Those also have issues sometimes. I have an implant. I definitely preferred the root canals even with the occasional issues over the implant. I would recommend that people who do get a root canal also seriously consider a crown as the tooth is weakened and more likely to fracture in the future. A dentist told me that he would recommend this to clients, but they all thought that he was just trying to make money. Before I went overseas to live I made sure that all of my root canal teeth had a crown.

        Before getting it pulled and replaced with an implant, I had the same tooth re-root-canaled four times by different top-notch endodontists. I have extremely long curved roots and root canals have not worked for me...at all. When the tooth was finally pulled it left a fragment, right next to the sinus wall that later had to be surgically removed. I have a second tooth which similarly was re-root canaled three times. The procedure that finally worked was an apicoectomy. No problem with that tooth since. The apicoectomy is sometimes referred to as a "flap" surgery. It's where the cut open the gums and cut off much of the root. It wasn't that bad, despite what everybody said. Both of these procedures required significant bone grafting and multiple grafting procedures due to extensive bone loss. If I could go back in time I would have gone directly to implants.

          The books mentioned are far more informative than the Nexflix video (the Youtube link about was only preview). The books are chalked full of compelling research data. I'd challenge anybody to read them and see if they don't change their minds. This is a systemic issue, not just a oral health issue. A great deal associated with cancer and cardio.

            I did read a lot of them. And it did change my mind. I've consulted Dr. Thompson re: this. I'm awaiting his reply. It's very interesting. Thanks again, cburg!

              This might be important. However, the video is not helping.

                You've seen the whole video or just the short (overly dramatic) preview? But yes, the books are extremely informative and what ultimately convince me...along with my wive who has 30+ years in the dental & periodontal field who was first quite skeptical. Where we disagreed was I think one should go to a top-notch clinic in Mexico for 1/4 the cost for implants...but she insisted I stay in the USA. I have a co-worker who is going to Mexico for complete upper and lower full-mouth implants. The clinic he's selected has US dentists.
