The Crux of the Biscuit

The painful truth about teeth
You can work full time but not have the money to fix your teeth – visible reminders of the divide between rich and poor.

But the absolutely gobsmacking truths about teeth are:
  1. If they are bad, the nerves are dead and there usually isn't any pain.   So you ignore them until you are septic.
  2. Too Much invasive dental treatment does just about as much damage to the immune system and brain as complete neglect.  It directly introduces oral microbes into the bloodstream.
Ultimately, this is the fundamental problem in medicine:  Separation of Dental and Body protocols.
