Not only will the safest and highest quality white Nano-hybrid resin composite fillings that we use enhance your smile, but they will eliminate the potentially harmful old fashioned toxic heavy metal mercury silver fillings. In laboratory tests, these new state-of-the-art fillings strengthened teeth 7 to 8 times.
While the United States is still debating mercury amalgam fillings, governments world wide, i.e. Germany, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Austria, Finland, Canada, etc. have already banned them. Progress may be slow, but California has passed a law requiring patients to sign a form disclosing that their dentist is using a controversial material in their mouth.
It is estimated that American dentists put 80 tons of toxic mercury and over 100 million fillings in our mouths every year. According to Michael Braunstein, HeartlandHealing.com, 92 percent of American dentists still say they prefer to work with amalgam fillings despite safer alternatives. Critics of amalgam fillings believe this established procedure is still being used because the financial interest is so lucrative, the procedure so ingrained.
It is an un-debatable fact that Mercury is a poison, more toxic than lead or arsenic. The debate is with the American Dental Association position that mercury fillings are not a major source of mercury in the body. If you break a thermometer, government guidelines recommend the room be sealed until Hazardous Materials experts can decontaminate the scene. Yet 80% of Americans have more mercury in their mouth than a thermometer. You may be one of them. Every time you chew, drink, or brush your teeth, toxic mercury vapors and particles enter your body. When introduced to the body it goes mainly to organs like the brain, kidneys, liver and nerve cells where it hides relatively undetected, slowly poisoning the system.
The good news is that there are several available alternatives to mercury. As a holistic dentist, I use special, white fillings. If you have a mouth full of mercury, the removal process could expose you to more mercury than leaving them in unless it is done by an experienced holistic dentist. In many cases, health returns when the consistent mercury exposure is ended.
