Meridian Chart

Biological dentistry is all about how your dental health is connected to the rest of the body. Some schools of thought, especially those which subscribe to traditional Chinese medical practices, believe that each tooth is connected to a sector or organ in your body. We believe there is an undeniable connection since poor oral health can lead to a wide range of physiological symptoms.  

One of the methods we use to elucidate this connection is using the time-honored meridian tooth chart to help us figure out which treatments will have the best effect on your overall health.

What is a Meridian Chart?

The Meridian Tooth Chart has its origins in acupuncture. It is believed that each tooth has an inextricable connection to different energy meridians and corresponding organs, body parts, glands, and tissues. Recent evidence suggests that these meridians are related to tissue planes throughout the body, drawing a physiological connection between the health of a tooth and some other physiological ailment.  

How Do We Use the Meridian Tooth Chart?  

The Meridian Tooth Chart helps us find the connection between your teeth and other physical ailments throughout your body. For instance, if you have been experiencing chronic intestinal problems, we might be able to trace the source of the disease to a dental infection. By addressing the dental issue, we could also alleviate the physical illness.  

What are the Body’s Meridians?  

There are twelve meridians in the body:  

  • Heart
  • Pericardium
  • Triple-burner
  • Lung
  • Stomach
  • Large intestine
  • Small intestine
  • Liver
  • Gallbladder
