Even the slightest tooth pain or damage may signify a problem associated with the internal organs. Therefore, if you know about this connection, you can easily find out which internal organ is making you sick.
There are also other relations among the teeth and the human organism. For example, damaged teeth can often cause headaches.
According to experts, the central and lateral incisors of both jaws, can reveal you the condition of your kidneys and bladder. The canine teeth can tell the condition of the liver and bile. The first and second premolars reveal the state of the lungs and colon, while the molars tell the state of the gall bladder, spleen and pancreas. And lastly, the wisdom teeth can reveal you the health of your heart and small intestine.
Do not get this wrong. Not every disease affecting the internal organs reflects as a teeth damage, or pain. Sometimes, a toothache can be just that and mean that the affected tooth needs to be repaired, or removed. What we talk about here is the so-called phantom pain. It usually occurs due to a signal sent by the damaged internal organs to the teeth.
