The use of amalgam fillings (silver or mercury fillings), is a well researched dental controversy. Mercury is the most toxic non-radioactive substance known. Exposure and accumulation of mercury may contribute to several chronic health issues.
According to Health Canada and the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario (RCDSO), amalgam fillings are considered safe once placed in the mouth. The claim is that mercury is set and does not contribute to further toxicity.
When it comes time to remove older amalgam fillings, it is important to ensure no mercury gets absorbed into the system during the replacement. We offer an effective protocol involving a special suction unit, contained breathing source, and the requisite drilling technique amongst other nuances.
Without taking the appropriate precautions, you may become exposed to higher levels of toxic mercury.
We are removing a potential source of mercury but not addressing any potential systemic load stored in your system. Mercury is stored in our fat cells and can have devastating
consequences on our brain cells, organ function, and many facets of health. We can help connect you with a knowledgeable primary practitioner to evaluate your current metal load. We can help direct you to various options to explore this health concern.
