How to save your teeth (and your health)

Mercury fillings

Mercury fillings (the silver gray or black fillings that millions of people have in their mouths) are toxic and in my opinion should immediately be banned. Mercury amalgam fillings are responsible for many serious and apparently chronic diseases.

Some people are more susceptible than others to the effects of mercury poisoning, and experience dramatic improvements in their health after the removal of their mercury amalgam fillings. For others like myself, there was little effect after I removed my mercury fillings.

The amount of mercury that goes into the average mercury amalgam tooth filling is sufficient to kill you if it was taken all at once. Approximately 50% of an amalgam filling is mercury. 25-30% is silver, and the remainder is usually zinc and tin. An amalgam filling will leak mercury vapour over many years. The specific sicknesses mercury causes are extremely variable with each individual person. Research over decades has proven mercury can be the cause of degenerative diseases such as inflammation, heart disease, arthritis, bone spurs, birth defects, mental depression, headaches, migraines, insomnia, irritability, hallucinations, memory loss, Alzheimer's disease, tremors (shakes), kidney diseases (nephritis), skin diseases such as dermatitis and eczema, loosening of the teeth, pain and numbness in the extremities (multiple sclerosis symptoms) and many others.

White composite fillings are only slightly more expensive than mercury amalgam fillings, but require more skill. If your dentist argues that white composite fillings are too weak and short-lived to use, find another dentist. Composite fillings performed by a skilled dentist will last as long as any others. A dentist who is not capable of doing composite fillings should not be allowed to practice.

If you and your dentist decide to go ahead with a mercury amalgam filling, I suggest you ask your dentist for a written and signed conformation that mercury amalgam fillings are safe and will not harm you.
