An Easy-To-Understand Tooth Chart of Meridians
Given the connection between teeth health and wellness in other parts of your body, following are some maladies that have been associated with certain teeth (4). A toothache doesn’t necessarily mean that there is a problem elsewhere; however, it is a possibility to explore, especially if discomfort lingers.
Here are a few meridians that connect to your teeth:
- Incisors and canine teeth are on meridians that connect to the kidney, liver, and gallbladder.
- The meridians from bicuspids and molars are to the large intestine and stomach.
These meridians link various organs, glands, muscles, and joints to your teeth:
- Pain in the upper and lower incisors can indicate kidney, bladder, and ear infections. They may also signal problems with the lymphatic system and reproductive organs.
- Molar pain can indicate anemia, stomach and intestinal ulcers, chronic gastritis (inflammation of the stomach lining), hemorrhoids, bladder infections, breast health, rheumatism, and chronic inflammation of the pancreas.
- Wisdom teeth, on the other hand, connect to the central nervous system, heart, liver, and intestines. They can also signal high blood pressure, eczema, headache, liver disease, pain in the extremities, and cardiovascular disease.
