Holistic dentistry also referred to as biologic dentistry; is an alternative approach that focuses on the use of non-toxic restorative materials for dental work, and emphasises the unrecognised impact that dental toxins and dental infections may have on a person's overall health. While traditional dentistry focuses only on the areas above the neck, holistic dentistry looks at the patient as a whole system and how the mouth relates to the rest of the body.
Here at Dental Distinction we specialise in safely removing amalgam fillings. We follow strict guidelines for both pre and post removal, as well as during the procedure to ensure all amalgam is removed safely and correctly so your body can begin the recovery phase.
WHAT IS THAT ‘SILVER FILLING’?
The silver fillings in your mouth are actually about 50% mercury. Dental amalgam is an alloy of Silver, Tin, Zinc and Copper combined with an equal amount of Elemental Mercury.
As there is a continuous release of mercury from dental amalgam, dentists must dispose of scrap amalgam as toxic waste following strict guidelines. (It is illegal to put it in the garbage, the sewer or the drain).
Clinical experience has demonstrated that people affected by mercury from dental amalgam will often enhance the benefits of amalgam removal if removal is combined with a detoxification routine prior to, during and after the amalgam removal.
Removal of amalgam fillings has been shown to substantially lower the body burden of mercury88, 89. Protocols do exist for the safer removal of dental amalgam from your mouth. Failure to follow these guidelines may result in exposure to an unacceptable level of mercury. Removing old amalgam fillings must be performed with extreme care.
