Did you know that even the tiniest tooth problem can be a sign of certain internal issue? As unbelievable as it sounds, there is a strong link between the state of your teeth and your internal organs. Read on for more in-depth information on the topic!
For instance, the upper and lower incisors are associated with the kidneys, bladder, and ears while canine teeth are linked to the state of your liver and gallbladder. As explained by the experts, the premolars reflect the state of the lung and color, the molars tell a lot about the state of the stomach, spleen, and the pancreas, and ultimately, the wisdom teeth are associated with the heart and the small intestine.
However, this doesn’t mean that all internal damages are accompanied by damage of the teeth. In many cases, the patients feels discomfort and slight pain in the areas surrounding a healthy tooth while sometimes the pain may be felt in areas where the tooth has been long been removed.
The pain felt in such instances is called phantom pain and it results from the messages the affected organ sends to the corresponding tooth. If you are familiar with this connection, you will be able to root out the diseased organ easily.
