Health

The world of acupuncture is vast, and not many people have explored within it. You probably didn’t even know that each one of your teeth are connected to a certain organ!

Yes, every single tooth is connected to a separate part of the body! In fact, if the tooth becomes infected it is likely that the organ it is connected to is also suffering. Some of these infections can’t even be detected by x-rays! It also works the opposite way. If an organ is damaged or poorly functioning, the tooth it is connected to will also experience complications. If you have had recent mouth troubles you should go for a checkup!  

Here is the Meridian Tooth Chart
