A brief description of the Meridian Tooth Chart
The Meridian Tooth Chart is based on acupuncture meridians, pathways of energy that span across interrelated body parts, glands, and tissues. Each tooth is associated with a particular meridian, through which energy flows. Dentists familiar with the Meridian Tooth Chart are often able to assess patients' general state of health and wellness simply through a review of the oral environment. If a weakness in a particular system or organ exists, the condition of the tooth associated with that area could exacerbate the problem.
