I think more the jostling from any dental work could loosen some of the "debris" so to speak from stretching of the tissue around the eyes. The mechanics the body has to go through during a dental procedure can stress all kinds of tissues all over the body, really, for those with "tender" or inflamed tissue issues as lyme causes.

Long term, any infection can cause the body tissue to not be as strong as well as "debris" floating around - sort of - to explain some floaters. "Debris" is the only word I can think of now but the explanations are in the thread below.

If you have floaters, be sure to assess your antioxidant intake, it may need to be increased. Most often, as when the liver can't handle the waste load and gets stressed, when the eyes are similarly stressed floaters can occur.

Antioxidants are vital to the liver - and to the eyes. More specific liver support antioxidants help the integrity of eye tissue, too. Bilberry, etc.

Of course, if infection is on board, that also must be directly and assertively addressed systemically.

Also, some floaters require an eye exam as they can be a sign of vitreous tissue detachment. When so, immediate vision care is vital as it may save sight. If in doubt, call your eye doctor ASAP for any sudden changes.

Some are just "normal" aging, though. And some fall into the chronic illness arena, as you've wondered.

How to tell the difference between the reasons why, and some good detail about FLOATERS:

I handle eye floaters and all eye symptoms by drinking mangosteen juice, an anti-inflammational juice. I like the Mango-Xan version as it's the most tart. In health food stores and online.

Well, I don't think so, but if the statement is based on ***********, then most probably he knows better. Anyway, if this is important for you, you can ask other dentists, what they think about this statement. You can appeal to one or a few dentistries and ask more specialists what they think and heard about this.

This timing is beautiful. My optometrist told me a couple of days ago that Lyme disease does not cause floaters. I know better, and she may enjoy more information.

There were times before when I could see little squirmy things that looked exactly like biota seen under a microscope. I wasn't outside looking up.

I do also have the detachment that comes with older age, and haven't noticed a huge floater. I actually haven't noticed any floaters lately. Another symptom gone away.

I hadn't had eye floaters in probably 10 yrs.

In March this year I developed a severe maxillary sinus issue that lead to such swelling of my upper molars. The pressure popped a crown and cracked a tooth in half.

I experienced eye floaters during this period. Once the tooth was removed and the treatment for the sinus started working, the floaters were gone.

Everything in the body is connected. Infected teeth are also connected to major organs, different body areas, joints etc.

Each tooth has 3 miles of tubules. If there is bad guys (bacteria) in these tubules, it's no wonder some Lyme folks have a difficult time completely eliminating bacteria both orally and elsewhere in the body.

Unfortunately, it's never just Lyme that causes tooth infections, loss of teeth, gum infections. Sometimes its staph, strep, pseudomonas, fungi, oral spirochetes, etc etc.

When Lyme & co got me, I had already had lifetime of bad dentistry, mouthful of amalgams, failed gum surgeries, and one bad root canal. So they ran to my weakest area.

Flickering in the eyes has nothing to do with teeth. The natural aging process can only cause flickering in the eyes. This problem usually occurs only in older people. It is not as dangerous, but it can worsen the appearance of the eyes. It doesn't even necessarily affect vision.

However, infected teeth are very dangerous to our health, so it is important to treat them as soon as possible. If you see a cavity or discoloration of a tooth, it's a sign that you should see a dentist immediately. Because a cavity can progress, causing unbearable pain and infection.

I see a general dentist in Bay Village, OH, every six months to prevent these problems.
