Welcome To Case's Column

Let me say a big welcome to all of you for joining me here. I'm going to call these blog meetings Case's Column. I wanted to use "Corner", but that was already taken. Since 2008, it's been a real privilege to come on here and share some of my life with you, and it's a big world where we live.

In these blogs, I'll just speak whatever is on my mind, but we will be playing within the rules here. I may pick a particular topic, point out an event, or shoot the breeze. I'm a little bit of an essayist at times, so I'll just speak what's on my mind, and I might tell a story or two. Or, I might spew out an opinion or three. There will be some serious moments, some tender, some poignant, but there will also be those moments that you'll just bust out laughing. But, hopefully, everything will be in good fun here. And, of course, I'll set aside a place here for your comments and thoughts as we go along here. So feel free to join me for the ride -- I sure as heck hope I'm doing this right and not making any mistakes.

Thanks for taking your time in reading Case's Column. Hopefully, you'll enjoy being entertained by it as much as I've enjoyed putting these writings together. And thanks for the time you spend in City-Data.com, where it's great to be alive!

To Tell The Tooth? Getting To The Root Of The Problem

Part 1 is already over, with yours truly having gotten a temporary filling put in an abscessed tooth. It's also the hard part, so when I go to the endodontist tomorrow morning, I'll know what to expect. The root canal treatment will be over in no time.

When I go in for the second (and, hopefully, final) appointment, a permanent filling will be put in place to, once and for all, bring restoration to said tooth. I'll admit, I really needed it. Thankfully, the lesions below tooth 24 didn't grow any bigger, as they have been there for years unchecked. It's located in the front, but it's in the lower bridge. Still, it had been noticeable to those standing up close to my face. Root canals aren't about pain, folks; they're about healing. And tomorrow will see the beginning of a new journey, one where dog poop is turned into gold. Be glad I don't have a gold tooth. Instead, the abscessed tooth will be restored to much of its former color.

What's wrong with having all of your teeth in good condition?? Be sure to get your teeth checked as soon as you can. You can thank me later.

    That procedure took only 35 minutes. Not bad.

    Better, mal. Thanks. The tooth really won't become white again (have to do a bleaching for that), but the roots below the tooth will function as good as new. Didn't have any big pain, either.

    You have not gone down the road long enough. I am 62 and almost dead from the necrotic dental tissue and infections from 4 root canals and poorly extracted teeth. It seems so harmless and makes such sense while you are doing them. They are professionals, right? I mean they went to school for a long time to learn to do this right. Wrong!
    I don't have the time to tell my story but my family is trying to get me to a dentist in Mexico, Dr. Lagos, a very reputable NOT GREEDY dentist who trained under the famous Hal Huggins. I was told by American Dentists that it would be around $65,000.00 to fix my mouth and make me well again. Dr. Lagos will do it for a fraction of that price. I have been soooooo sick for the last five years from my teeth. Medicaid dentists did horrible work on me. Before they did their work I did not have TMJ, and Trigeminal Neuralgia (look that one up in Wiki) it's called the suicide disease. I have dead necrotic rotting tissue all over in my gums that has completely destroyed my health. I am bed ridden and all I know is pain. I may or may not scrape enough money to make it to Mexico before this kills me. But I lost my health at 55. My life as I knew it was over. I can't work, I can't even sleep without large ice packs on top and bottom of my head and lots of pain killers. Do your research. Hal Huggins was a genius in the field of dentistry who followed in the foot steps of Dr. Price about root canals and how they affect your overall health. My doctor says that if I do not get these out I will die soon. Yet, insurance will not cover this. I am an RN and not just a quack. I am trying to warn you to uncover the story about root canals, amalgams, and poorly done extractions for your own sake. I live in constant pain that nothing relieves. Don't come down this road, you won't like it.

    Please take the time to go to Dr. Mercola's website (sign up; you won't believe what you will learn) and search for this article of November 16, 2010 "Why You Should Avoid Root Canals Like The Plague." Read on until you get to the research done by Dr. Weston Price which will astound you. This is sound, scientifically proven research done by a large research team. I have not read "The Great Root Canal Cover-Up" but it certainly sounds worth reading. I just don't need any further proof, I am dying from this. The excruciating pain and misery I have suffered at the hand of dentists is unbelievable. All my baby teeth were filled with mercury fillings as were my adult teeth. And amalgams which contain mercury are a whole separate nightmare.
    You can live many years without seeming harm. When you are young, your immune system works to fight this off. But I became very ill and my immune system was compromised. After that the bacteria in my mouth took over. Ever since I have been living in my own personal Auschwitz. Please take the time for your own good. If you were me, you would jump off a cliff. It is a miracle that God has given me the grace to not commit suicide. I believe many would have without Him.
