Why Should I Choose Mercury Free Dentistry?
Mercury is a highly toxic substance that's still widely used by many dentists in the United States to create amalgam cavity fillings, despite nationwide bans in Canada, Australia and much of Europe. The World Health Organization has taken a stand against the use of mercury in healthcare applications, including dentistry. In fact, they consider mercury to be among the top ten chemicals or compounds that are a major public health concern due to their effects on the kidneys, lungs, immune and digestive systems. Exposure to mercury in utero and early in life can also be a threat to the development of children.
Moreover, the use of dental mercury in amalgam fillings is the leading source of mercury in our wastewater. Not only are mercury fillings dangerous to your health on a personal level, but also on a global scale as pollution resulting from dental mercury use accumulates.
Most stimulation of amalgam fillings, including everyday actions such as eating, chewing gum and brushing your teeth, can cause those fillings to release mercury into your bloodstream, where it affects your central nervous system. When cavities are filled by a mercury free dentist, perfectly viable and safe alternatives are used in place of this dangerous toxin.
Natural dentistry allows you to rest assured knowing the fillings in your mouth don't contain toxic substances that could be released into your body.
