I have talked about how THE virus can cause dental issues by ‘hiding’ in viral reservoirs in the oral cavity. A preprint prepared by scientists specializing in dental health from the University of Plymouth, UK explained the molecular mechanism used to damage your periodontal health .
Simply stated, THE virus can turn off mitochondrial fatty acid oxidation to cause energy deficiency in cells, leading to fibrotic degeneration in periodontal ligaments. When that happens, you end up with loose teeth.
I know many individuals who had to replace their loosened teeth after C19 infections. Few of them connected the dots, and most of them don’t take enough melatonin.
What is the connection here?
Melatonin enhances fatty-acid oxidation in mitochondria .
