Acupuncture meridians are energy pathways or channels that span across interrelated body parts, glands, and organs. When one organ is diseased, for example, its effects can be seen across other parts of the body connected to the same meridian. Every part of the body is ultimately connected to one or more parts through a meridian — including your teeth.

A Meridian Tooth Chart is a tool that lets you see which tooth lies along which meridian, and therefore, what other body parts it’s most strongly connected with. From your molars to your incisors, your teeth can tell you more about your body than you ever knew possible.

By observing your oral health, an holistic dentist can get a good idea of your overall wellbeing. If you have a body part that is weak or ill, the tooth along the same meridian could be making it worse. If you have a heart condition, an impacted wisdom tooth could be exacerbating the issue.


Which teeth connect to which organs?


For the most part, the upper and lower teeth align in which meridians they connect to. Your 3rd molars on the upper and lower jaw, for example, all connect to the heart. However, the upper and lower 1st and 2nd molars, along with the premolars, are different between top and bottom jaws. Here we break down which teeth connect to which organs and glands.



The incisors are your most forward-facing teeth at the front of the mouth, which you use to cut and tear foods with. The central incisors and lateral incisors, both upper and lower, connect to the following glands and organs. Note the major glands that they connect with; these are the only things that are different between the two jaws.

• Kidneys
• Prostate
• Bladder
• Uterus
• Rectum
• Anus
• Pineal gland (upper incisors)
• Adrenal glands (lower incisors)



Upper and lower:

• Liver
• Eye


• Gall bladder
• Intermediate love of the pituitary


• Ovaries and testicles


Bicuspids (premolars)

Bicuspids connect to almost entirely different body parts depending on whether they are upper or lower. Lower bicuspids also connect to slightly different organs depending on if they are on the left or right side.

Upper bicuspids:

• Lungs
• Large intestine
• Posterior pituitary
• Thymus
• Left/right breast, corresponding to which side of the mouth the teeth are on (cuspids on your left are connected your left breast)

Lower bicuspids

• Stomach
• Spleen (right bicuspids only)
• Pancreas (left bicuspids only)
• Testicles/ovaries
• Left/right breast

Tooth notation in dentistry

1st and 2nd Molars

The first and second molars, like the bicuspids, show a lot of variation, and include small differences between left and right sides.

Upper 1st and 2nd molars:

• Left/right breast
• Thyroid
• Stomach
• Spleen (right only)
• Pancreas (left only)
• Parathyroid

Lower 1st and 2nd molars:

• Lungs
• Large intestine


3rd Molars

Third molars are also known as “wisdom teeth”. They’re the last teeth to grow and are often extracted for a variety of reasons. They connect with the same organs, but slightly different glands.

• Heart
• Small intestine
• Endocrine gland
• Pericardial
• Anterior pituitary (upper only)

The Meridian tooth charting should be taken with a pinch of salt. This type of holistic approach has not been approved and backed up by any of the dental associations around the world. Few dentists are keen on applying this method for diagnosing and analysing patients' health. However, it is a well known fact, that dental and periodontal health is linked to the overall condition of your body.
