The front teeth are connected to the kidneys. The stomach is connected to the premolars. This is something that practitioners of Traditional Chinese Medicine have known for thousands of years.
Most people are familiar with Chinese Medicine or acupuncture and have heard about meridians , the channels through which energy flows in the body. Each organ, gland and body structure has an associated meridian, including the teeth.
What does all this mean to health and wellness? Well, if someone has a bad tooth, the energy flow through the meridian belonging to that tooth will be altered. This in turn can affect the health of all the other organs on that meridian. For example, Tooth Number 14, the upper left first molar tooth, is on the same meridian with the kidneys, liver, spleen, stomach and breast. So, if this tooth has a problem, it may affect energy flow through the meridian, and the health of those organs may be affected as well.
