Treating specific jaw zones has far-reaching effects on the body

Sissi Karz, Naturopath, Agios Nicolaos, Greece

I spent many years searching for settings for the individual regions of the jaw which I could reproduce consistently and which, as reflex zones, like the eyes, ears, foot reflex zones and other areas, mainly show reactions to disturbances present across the whole body. Only rarely (for example, following an accident) are problems in the dental root area responsible for subsequent symptoms within the body.

It had already emerged while I was practising in Switzerland that most patients’ conditions did not improve when they had their amalgam fillings replaced by gold or another material. On the contrary! Many patients only came to me after having their amalgam fillings removed and replaced because they felt worse than before. Since then, before advising patients to have their amalgam fillings removed, I always treat the jaw region belonging to the most troublesome tooth – usually with outstanding results. Only in very rare cases, however, is this the tooth which is in fact causing the patient’s symptoms.

I then looked for recurrent connections between the dental root process and the organism and for opportunities to treat my patients with this information. The links with the teeth proposed by Dr Voll were no help in this regard because of their complexity.

It was only after attending a special kinesiology seminar at which the special meridians assigned to individual teeth and the kinesiological muscle test were demonstrated that I discovered and was able to develop a conclusive and proven method of treating patients that I could recommend. These tests based on the meridians and organ systems give extremely precise indications to the corresponding dental root areas and this has proved to be very helpful.

Naturally I first always tested all the muscles assigned to the patient’s affected teeth to determine whether they really were weak. Once I had confirmed this, I had the patient touch the dental root area requiring treatment and once again carried out the muscle test which had previously tested weak. And the intriguing result was that this test now came out as strong.

For me this was proof that causal links actually do exist in the body if just one single dental root region is really affecting the body, even if several zones previously tested as weak.

It is now very easy to discover the dental root area causing the main problem for the body (and the one which needs individual treatment as the “focus”) without, as a therapist, having to carry out the meridian- based muscle tests.

Test procedure

The patient first touches the root region of the upper and then the lower row of teeth on the outside with two fingers. This covers 2 or 3 teeth each time. This is a preliminary check so that the patient does not need to poke around too much inside the mouth.

If a muscle test conducted in this way turns out weak, the patient must then touch the appropriate jaw zones inside the mouth (between lip and jaw) individually one by one with one finger to determine the debilitating dental root area. The root regions which test weak are recorded to ultimately determine the area which needs treating as a priority.

If, for example, the region touched on the outside between the lower right 3rd and 5th tooth was debilitating, the patient then touches the root area of the 3rd, 4th and 5th tooth individually one after the other inside the mouth to accurately locate the affected jaw area. In this way you can establish the precise jaw area troubling the patient. This in turn acts like a “battery charger” on the tooth and any filling present!

As mentioned earlier, this disturbance will have arisen due to an organ or another system being stressed and it will then have affected the corresponding meridian process.

All the dental root areas which test weak by this method are recorded. In severe cases up to ten different regions may test weak. Fortunately (as with the nutrient points, for example) just one single dental root area is always the key to the whole system and this one jaw region also has priority when it comes to treatment.

dental root areas

Here it has emerged that only the patient’s upper left 6th tooth area needs treating. This jaw region is connected to the spleen- pancreas meridian. However it also reacts to all kinds of radiation, whether from geopathic influences, mobile phones, electronic smog, etc. Consequently, with this tooth, you should always test out whether the spleen-pancreas program should be used first to treat the patient or whether a geopathy or radiation program should be given priority. This is in fact very often the case.


The procedure is always to treat just one dental root region, with the appropriate input applicator, as determined by the muscle test, placed on the body, on the opposite side of the body to the tooth to be precise.

The output is the goldfinger applicator in the pocket between the lip and dental root area of the worst affected tooth requiring treatment.

The positioning of the input applicator is determined by the region of insertion – origin of the muscle assigned to the tooth, as shown in the manual.

The chronic degenerative program assigned to the meridian is always used for therapy, which makes the procedure easier.

To reinforce treatment it is beneficial to imprint 2 chips which are then applied in the muscle area of the input applicator.

In this patient the lower right 5th dental root area is the lower right 5th dental root areabeing treated. This is linked to the liver meridian and essentially has considerable influence on detoxification of the body as well as blood production.

In this case the input applicator is applied on the opposite left side of the body near the heart.

In a situation like this it is possible that a patient will complain about paroxysmal heart problems. These usually calm down really quickly after the dental root of the lower right 5th tooth is treated by this method.
Only if the upper 2nd tooth (assigned by kinesiologists to the heart meridian) is also affected, even if it was not a priority as regards treatment, does the heart region sometimes take longer to calm down.

This type of dental root treatment is always very far-reaching if carried out at the right time.

If there is no clear indication of the tooth which most needs treatment, it is possibly not the right time for this therapy. In situations like this you should postpone treatment to a later date so that you can resolve several problems once and for all in one go.

If teeth have been extracted because the jaw could not accommodate them all, then the original location on the jaw usually counts for therapy!

If, for example, the upper 2nd tooth was removed to make room in the jaw for all the teeth and the 3rd tooth has now moved towards the 1st, nevertheless the jaw area around the 2nd tooth should normally be treated with the corresponding input applicator and frequency setting.

It is best, in such situations, to note down both options, e.g. 2/3, to play safe when clarifying the main problem in the jaw area. Both options are then tested out when determining which dental root area has priority as regards treatment. The body will give us a definite answer whether the heart (2nd tooth) or lungs and gallbladder (3rd tooth) lie hidden behind the jaw problem.

dental example

The result is then, for example:
“The following has priority for treatment”
upper right 2nd tooth” KT
“upper right 3rd tooth” KT
“lower left 1st tooth” KT… etc.

This precise statement has proved better at delimiting the key zone than simply stating tooth numbers – “tooth 12, 13, 31, etc”. Such numbers do not resonate so clearly with the body as the above clear statement.

With almost all the people I have treated so far I have found that, once one individual dental root problem was treated thoroughly, one or other troublesome area in the jaw could also be eliminated when checked again following therapy. This means that all the other organ systems belonging to these dental root regions were merely additional victims of the main issue and did not represent an effective stress on the body.

This fact helps all therapists define the remaining therapeutic measures needed to bring about healing.

Points to note:

Two different meridians and muscle tests are assigned to the 3rd tooth in the upper jaw. This region is linked both to the lungs and to gallbladder function. Consequently the muscles are attached at different places and the input applicator is positioned in different regions.

The easiest way to test the input applicator here is as follows:

“The input applicator belongs at the front of the shoulder!”

If the upper arm muscle remains strong, then the patient’s body is asking for help with the lung area and treatment of the jaw region with the appropriate chronic degenerative meridian program.

If, on the other hand, the muscle is weak, then the input applicator is required in the hollow of the knee for therapy and the chronic degenerative gallbladder meridian program is used.

For the 4th tooth of the lower jaw, linked to the large intestine, there are two different muscle tests and consequently two superimposed regions which will influence subsequent correction of the jaw block. So we test kinesiologically:

“The input applicator belongs on the buttock/thigh!”

If the muscle test remains strong, then it is best if the patient sits on the foot plate when being treated.

If, on the other hand, the muscle becomes weak, then the input applicator should be placed slightly below the waist and to one side in order to treat the lower 4th tooth.

My experience has shown that it is not necessary or advantageous to use both areas at the same time in the input. The more precisely the input applicator was positioned, the better the result.

The program required for therapy is the same here.


This 4th tooth should definitely be checked in patients with sciatica.

With the 5th tooth (linked to the diaphragm) and the 7th tooth of the upper jaw (small intestine), the input applicator is placed on the midline of the body, both when treating the tooth on the right and the left side of the jaw.

When checking all dental root regions which previously tested weak, you will note, as mentioned earlier, that these now test as stable and consequently no longer affect the body.

Obviously this does not mean that the main problem within the body is now resolved.

Yet the clues we have been given by this causal dental root treatment help us in our subsequent therapy sessions where we need to act to support the patient’s healing process.

In really exceptional cases, if the treated tooth area does not test strong after the BICOM optima®l therapy time, you should send the patient to the dentist. In such cases the problem often lies in a pus focus in the jaw which must be lanced or in other residual contamination in the bone area. These symptoms can certainly be alleviated with additional bioresonance therapy but not eliminated.

Following jaw-related treatment, the patient can clearly experience recovery and relief in those organs or affected areas assigned to the treated root process.


– With the upper 2nd tooth this relieves the heart (and pain around the shoulder blade)
– With the upper 5th tooth tidal volume improves (and pain around the breastbone and bronchi is relieved)
– The lower 6th tooth regulates the hormone situation (and relieves cramp on the inside of the thigh)
– etc.

This means that there is also a beneficial influence on all cramp and tension or pain in those zones from which the input information was obtained for therapy.


If the patient experiences recurrent painful episodes in highly specific parts of the body it is sometimes very instructive to adopt the reverse approach and consult the specific jaw table in the manual to see which jaw region is assigned to this affected part of the body!

Sometimes, just by doing this, you obtain important pointers for subsequent treatment of the patient.

Consequently, you should, for example,
– also check the lower 4th tooth in the event of sciatica
– with pain in the groin, consider a possible problem in the lower wisdom tooth
– with heartburn, consider a link to the upper 7th tooth, etc.

If you have not yet experimented with this type of dental root treatment, you will definitely be amazed by the significant effect of the possibilities presented here – and be thrilled with the results once you have tried out this type of influence on the body via the dental root area.
