Safe Mercury Removal Protocols
Integrative Dentistry at Vedic Dental Offers Safe Dental Amalgam Removal, State of the Art Technology and Integrative Total Body Detoxification Protocols.
The safety of amalgam fillings represents an increasingly controversial topic in world dentistry. Sweden, Austria, Denmark, and Norway have banned amalgam use, and the United States’ FDA revoked its previously pro-amalgam stance in a landmark decision June 4, 2008. Although the American Dental Association continues to promote amalgam fillings as standard of care dentistry, the FDA’s website now warns “Dental amalgams contain mercury, which may have neurotoxic effects on the nervous systems of developing children and fetuses" (fda.gov). California has made it mandatory for all dentists to declare to their patients about mercury use in their practice. Regardless of which side of the amalgam-safety controversy seems most reasonable to you, our goal as dental providers is to offer the safest possible removal as old amalgam fillings break down and we encourage you to research safety issues surrounding amalgam restorations for yourself. When existing amalgam fillings are mechanically intact, it must be your personal choice to have them replaced with other materials, whether for health or esthetic reasons.
Vedic Dental has the BEST technology to protect you as patient as well as our entire staff! Our Staff is trained to understand, evaluate and safely remove Mercury Fillings from your body and help you with the Detoxification Process.
For YOUR Safety
What you need to know about Mercury and silver fillings.
Mercury is a neurotoxin; a poison that is responsible for the degeneration of nerve tissue. Mercury may contribute to many disorders and symptoms such as Alzheimer’s, brain fog, dizziness, chronic fatigue, skin rashes, irritability, metallic taste, and more.
More patients are getting wise to “silver fillings”, also known as “amalgam fillings”. These fillings might be more appropriately called “mercury fillings”.
Dental amalgam is a mixture of metals: tin, zinc, copper, silver, and about 50% mercury. When mercury is “fixed” or “bound” by these other metals, it is considered safe according to the American Dental Association.
However, when mercury is heated, it is released as a highly toxic vapor. Toxic mercury vapors can leach out of this mixture, or amalgam of metals when exposed to heat or friction, such as brushing your teeth, eating or drinking hot foods and liquids, chewing, and grinding your teeth. Harmful vapors are also released when amalgam fillings are removed.
This short video clip provided by the International Academy of Oral Medicine & Toxicology shows how easily mercury vapors are released from dental amalgam fillings. http://youtu.be/Bw94F94FZqA
