Pain abatement, or aesthetics of the teeth for that matter, is not the whole story. What has come to the fore, in the last three years alone, dwarfs what was our previous operational knowledge on how the body works. It is clear the mouth is an integral part of an amazing and complex set of body systems involving a multitude of chemical action and reaction per second, with millions of microorganisms supporting the host. It is a system driven by multiple renewable energy sources and coordinated by lightning fast communications that monitor and energize movement, while at the same time maintain internal balance for body defense and repair.
