Each tooth is linked to a specific meridian (energy flow highway of the body) and its organs. Sir William Osler (one of the founding fathers of modern medicine) suggested that the mouth is the mirror to the body. When a person is having an issue with a particular organ, the correlating tooth may become problematic, and vice versa. If a tooth becomes cracked or infected, it may contribute to symptoms in the associated meridian systems and organs. Also, see the Mercury Safety post about hazards from certain tooth fillings.
