Some holistic dentists and physicians believe that every root canal needs to be extracted, no exceptions. Some feel that every third molar extraction site needs to be surgically exposed. Because I do not believe this, some of these dentists believe that I am not a true-blue holistic dentist.
Have you ever heard the idiom, "To act like a canary in a coal mine?" Canaries were used in coal mines to warn the miners of the presence of dangerous methane gas.
