Even a small tooth problem can alarm some internal health issue. It sounds strange but there is a link between the state of teeth and organs inside. Read more below.
For example, the lower and upper incisors are linked to the kidneys, bladder and ears. The canine teeth link to the liver and gallbladder. Experts say that premolars link to the lungs and the wisdom teeth to the heart and small intestines.
But, this doesn’t mean that internal damages have to be linked to the teeth damage. Often, patients feel pain in some areas around a healthy tooth and sometimes the pain is in the areas where the tooth is removed long time ago.
The pain like this is called phantom pain and is due to the messages some organs send to the tooth. If you felt this, you can detect the damaged organ with ease.
