TMJ 'dysfunction' - Health implications

This forum provides information relating to the role that a 'dysfunctional' jaw, dental arch anomalies and other consequential body asymmetries play in causing illness from a completely different perspective. It is meant to be your ONE stop to find out how to go about getting proper relief.

This article caught my attention on the internet:

The CDC reports an outbreak of Extensively Drug-resistant Pseudomonas aeruginosa eye infections. They have associated the occurence with 'Artificial Tears'

"As of March 14, 2023, CDC, in partnership with state and local health departments, identified 68 patients in 16 states, a rare strain of extensively drug-resistant P. aeruginosa.

Thirty-seven patients were linked to four healthcare facility clusters. Three people have died and there have been 8 reports of vision loss and 4 reports of enucleation (surgical removal of eyeball).

Dates of specimen collection were from May 2022 to February 2023. Isolates have been identified from clinical cultures of sputum or bronchial wash (15), cornea (17), urine (10), other nonsterile sources (4), and blood (2), and from rectal swabs (26) collected for surveillance; some patients had specimens collected from more than one anatomic site."
Please read the original article here.

My experience shows that Pseudomonas aeruginosa is extensively present in most patients mouths from excessive tooth paste and mouthwash use. Some toothpastes cause less damage but others cause severe damage by killing off the extremely important commensal bacteria. A slimy mixture of Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Staphylococcus Aureus biofilm takes hold. You can demonstrate if it is present in your own mouth by opening it while looking in the mirror and you will see slimy streaks. You can also feel that the saliva is slimy on your fingers rather than watery.

A putrid breath and gums which bleed easily are very common in such patients. This bacterial mixture causes serious gingival pocketing as extensively reported on my website, and as per my article on salt use, published during February 2009. At the time, I did not have the facility to figure out what bacteria were involved.

Apart fromdamage to the gingival supportof the teeth, these bacteria cause severe nasopharyngeal infections via the eustachian tube, chronic sore throats, parotid gland duct and other salivary land infections. Many patients end up losing several teeth and as per my experience the dental lesions are extensive in the upper left buccal segments where the first dollop of toothpaste is usually applied by most right-handed patients.

An article on my website posted on the 1st of May 2020 about Covid 19 says:

"The development of Staphylococcus Aureus and Pseudomonas Aeruginosa dominant biofilm infection PREVENTS ANY HEALING OF THE THROAT, if a new viral infection manifests itself.

One can only imagine how lethal viral and secondary bacterial infections under these circumstances can become if one gets infected with Covid-19."

How does this fit in with the presence of eye infections?
The researchers see the acute eye problem and the presence of resistant Pseudomonas Aeruginosa elsewhere in the body is possibly considered as a secondary phenomenon.

My assertions are that the primary site of infection is in the mouth where it would be easy to form resistant organisms.

Pseudomonas Aeruginosa can easily spread into one’s own eyes or on coughing, into someone else's eyes leading to serious outcomes as reported by the CDC.

I hope this will give some insight to the researchers and they can go back and re-check the candidates in their study. Better still check the saliva of patients who report for periodontal problems and the CDC may find the presence of these resistant organisms before they have affected anyone's eyes.

The patients should use salt water on a toohbrush, interdental brushes and an oral irrigator to restore their periodontal health and avoid serious infections as reported by the CDC.

Try for a few weeks. You can always go back on toothpaste if you disagree.
PS: We try and give you the most suitable information even if some in authority, are not comfortable with it. This information is a radical departure from conventional thought and if followed will give both dentists and patients, all around the world, the best way forward. This needs many hours of work and for me to continue to be able to change lives throughout the world and to keep my staff employed and my offices viable, we request a little help in the form of a donation.

Please donate using the link on the window that comes up at after about 5 seconds. (Please note I am in the process of revising that website.) Please remember there are at least 50 illnesses where millions of patients can be helped through dental interventions.

The improvement or benefits identified in the testimonials and articles on this site are based on individual experiences which are dependent upon the patient’s unique health condition, jaw condition, occlusal position, medical history, and other individualised factors, and should not be considered representative of all treatment outcomes.
