    2, i definetely felt my health started deteriorating after installing them back in 1999. Re-did them in the beginning of 2017 with a well renowed endodontist. Apart from some random pain still haven't seen any improvement.

    Had one done 11 years ago despite explicitly giving no consent. :( Short after infections started (schistosomiasis and myopericarditis), within 2 years a severe PAD (which earned me a 60% walking disability), in 4 years a COPD.

    Could get remission to some degree on all of them, and kept a developing prediabetes with diet at bay. Except the ME/CFS. Therefore got this 1 root canal treated tooth extracted 3 weeks ago. Will update if that extraction had any effect.

    ..updated that post.

    I think I had four, two later extracted. Some were long before developing ME/CFS, some done, redone, or extracted after. No effect on ME/CFS symptoms.

    The infection of a tooth could probably trigger ME/CFS, the same way other immune activation does, but removing the tooth afterwards is IMO, unlikely to help. ME/CFS seems to be something that gets triggered and then sustained by a feedback loop, so removing the trigger afterwards won't help...although I suppose it could possibly trigger a new ME/CFS event if you ever managed to cure the original one.
