New-Age German Dentist Removes Man’s Teeth Under Belief It Would Cure Erectile Dysfunction

When Germany’s Alex S., a man who had been diagnosed with schizophrenia, complained his teeth were disrupting energy flows in his body and causing erectile dysfunction, he made an appointment to see a new-age dentist, referred to as K., which led to a four-week extraction of all 19 of his teeth.

It may sound like the plot to a bizarre dream, but K. believed his patient’s claim and convinced Alex that he indeed was correct and it was due to him suffering from chronic osteitis (bone inflammation) and a allergy to his fillings.

Clearly the patient nor the so-called dentist were in their right mind, and now K. has been ordered to pay €20,000 in compensation, plus the cost for dental implants, to the equally crazed Alex.

There is a whole lot of crazy going on in this story, but German’s with a tooth ache can let out a sigh of relief as K. will be giving up dentistry to work full time on researching the vibration of body cells. Well, maybe that isn’t much of an assurance.
