Removing Mercury Fillings Good Health Step
“Dental amalgam releases low levels of elemental mercury in the form of a vapor that can be inhaled and absorbed by the lungs each time you eat, drink, chew gum, brush your teeth or otherwise stimulate your teeth,” Pontes says. Symptoms of mercury toxicity include tremors, emotional changes, insomnia, weakness, muscle atrophy, twitching, headaches, changes in nerve responses and deficient cognitive function. High levels of mercury vapor exposure adversely affect the brain, nervous system and kidneys.
Holistic Dentists offer alternatives to amalgam fillings, and they will remove old amalgam fillings following a special safety protocol, Pontes says. “My holistic heavy-metal cleanse is also highly recommended to optimize the natural detoxification mechanisms of your own body,” she adds.
