Teeth, Emotions and Spirituality

Did you know that emotions and thought processes can impact your dental health? Our spiritual, mental and emotional bodies are entrained with the physical body through a system of particle-accelerator centers called chakras.

Oral cavity and its associated structures such as teeth, gums, lips, tongue, tonsils, TMJ, maxillary sinuses, cervical spine and thyroid gland all draw their vital life force through the so-called throat chakra. Unimpeded flow of this life force is critical for optimal health of these physical structures, and blocked flow will over time result in disease. What blocks the flow of this vital life force? Discordant emotions resulting from chronic discordant thoughts which, in turn, are rooted in untrue core believes.

Belief systems are thus in charge of our reality and our health. Each chakra is connected to its own unique set of emotional patterns. Throat chakra is connected to soul expression, namely the soul’s desire to fulfill its mission and to express itself authentically and truthfully.

However, since we live on Earth, we inhabit an extremely polarized and dualistic collective where societal programming instills untrue beliefs about ourselves. This is seen most profoundly in belief systems connected to a soul expression. From a young age, society teaches that our creative endeavors, or desire for play and curiosity are frivolous and must take the backseat, while yielding to the responsibilities and duties demanded by this society.

By the time we are teenagers, we don’t know anymore what our purpose is and what makes us excited. Throat chakra is the most highly blocked chakra, and if we suffer from protracted gum disease, high tooth decay rate, TMJ disorders, teeth grinding, chronic tonsillitis, or thyroid disease, we must ask ourselves where we have been suppressed or where you have denied our creative needs.

Are you afraid to speak for fear of being rejected or hurting someone’s feelings? Are you afraid to play and be called lazy for it? Do you block your desire to paint or experiment with colors? Do you suppress the urge to dance, sing and work on exciting projects? Or have you even forgotten completely what makes you excited?

Do you remain in relationships that are stifling and no longer serving you? Are you convinced of the belief that you don’t matter? A primary emotion that blocks the throat chakra is fear to express oneself. Until this fear and the core belief of not being worthy of full soul expression are released, the disease in the associated structures such as teeth and gums will be difficult to manage.

At White Sands Dentistry, a private holistic practice, we strive to address all possible causes of dental disease including nutrition, home-care practices, or spiritual and emotional needs. We also provide gentle, conservative and preventative care.

Our hallmark procedure is the safe removal of mercury “silver” amalgam fillings for which we have been certified by International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology. In addition, we utilize ozone therapy which has many applications in dentistry, and is non-toxic alternative to antibiotics and pharmaceuticals commonly used in mainstream dentistry.
