Is drinking 60oz distilled water a day dangerous? I am doing the Jillian Michaels Detox for 7 days (lemon, cranberry, dandelion root tea)is it safe?

Is drinking 60oz distilled water a day dangerous? I am doing the Jillian Michaels Detox for 7 days (lemon, cranberry, dandelion root tea)is it safe?

Is it less painfull to extract a tooth after doing root canal ? (Root canal many years ago)

Is it less painfull to extract a tooth after doing root canal ? (Root canal many years ago)

A RCT extraction: RCT removes the nerve from within the tooth & in doing so prevents the transmission of sensation from the tooth when exposed to heat, cold & sweets. The outside of the tooth still has live tissue that connects it to the bone. Therefore a RCT tooth will not have more or less sensation to being extracted. HOWEVER, in all cases you will be completely numb and not feel anything & so it's a moot point. ...Read more
