Electro Oral Galvanism Toronto

Metals in the mouth can cause Electrical Problems within the human body

Electrical Problems Oral GalvanismWhen you put two different metals together in a solution, such as metal mercury amalgams and saliva, an electrical current is generated. The metals in this solution act as a battery. This process has been termed electrogalvanism. Even though the amount of electricity is quite small, you must consider that the nervous system of the human body is managed by very small amounts of electrical current.

Dissimilar metals in a solution, such as saliva, will create an electrical current. This is termed electrogalvanism or oral galvanism.

There are five different metals inside each mercury amalgam filling. Therefore, it is possible for an electrical current to be generated by these metals in the mercury amalgam filling because it is in contact with saliva. This additional current may interfere with the normal energy pathways in our bodies.

It all has to do with threshold. One person can handle a lot more than another

Electrogalvanism occurs at a higher rate when a variety of metals are present in the mouth. For example, a mouth containing mercury amalgam fillings alongĀ  with gold crowns, non-precious alloy crowns or even a partial denture that is made of metal can react and create this electrical battery effect in the mouth: Oral Galvanism.

Potential problems with electrogalvanism is another reason we do not use any metal in the dental crowns made at our practice. Oral Galvanism and the reactions they generate can increase the release of mercury from amalgam fillings into the body.

The problem is that we do not know how much Electrogalvanism is too much, or what the accumulated affect of Oral Galvanism has on an individual over their entire lifetime
