Start Your Journey towards a Beautiful Smile Today...


Approximately 25 years ago I was involved in an industrial accident. I was hit on the left upper jaw by a piece of lumber loosening three upper molars. The surgeon put braces on my teeth for six weeks and all was well or so I thought. Five years down the road I began to experience pain in those three teeth. So I go to a local dentist and he suggested root canals on those teeth. After that was done I was some better. But a few years down the road I began to experience pain above the area, causing ear aches, sinus infection, and mild sore throat, left shoulder pain, arm aches, chest pain and headaches. I had a daily feeling of no energy, and not feeling well. So my general physician has me do a complete physical, and says my cholesterol is a little high but other than that I’m fine. So I did some research and found that a root canal tooth can become infected because of the loss of an adequate blood supply. These dead teeth harbor many different kinds of infectious bacteria around the gums that support the tooth. These toxic germs make their way into your blood and travel and cause many different types of illnesses throughout the body. For example heart attacks, cancer, and many more. So I went back to my dentist and he examined my teeth and sees nothing wrong, but says I need to visit an ear nose and throat doctor. The ENT tells me to get a CAT scan and come see him. He only finds congestion in my sinuses, everything appears normal. Well more research and I discover Doctor Clark. I tell him my medical history and he recommends extracting all three root canals. He did an excellent job and I highly recommend his services. I start to feel better within a few days, better yet in a few months. First my chest and shoulder and left arm pain went away as well as my earaches, headaches, and sinus infections, sore throat all gone. My high energy level is back. I feel great. It has been sixteen months since the teeth were extracted and I continue to improve and can say this is the best thing I've ever done for myself. As for the three lost teeth I will have implants to restore that part of my bite.

PS As we age we kind of except feeling tired, weak, unwell, and not being as good as we once were, but in my case , well I’VE GOT MY LIFE BACK, thank you Dr. Clark!

Sincerely, Michael R
