Mercury Amalgam Fillings

Mercury is more toxic than Lead, Arsenic, and Cadmium.

Mercury Amalgam TorontoMercury amalgam was first introduced to North America in 1833. The logic believed then, which mistakenly persists today, is once these metals harden they do not pose a danger to the body because the mixture of metals are locked in and do not escape.

Mercury amalgam (silver) fillings are a mixture of:

  • 50% mercury
  • 35% silver
  • 15% copper, tin, zinc

Sharma & Obersteiner established that mercury is more toxic than lead, cadmium, and even arsenic [ Reference: "Metals and Neurotoxic Effect" Journal of Comparable Pathology, 1981].

It is now generally accepted that mercury is being released (i.e.leaching from amalgam fillings) in small amounts from the filling during its entire lifetime.

Heavy metal toxicity from constant small amounts of exposure (i.e.leaching) is an overlooked problem in dentistry today. Part of this problem is the threshold for toxicity, which varies from person to person. The bottom line is that, being cumulative, toxicity will catch up with us eventually as in my own case. or simply place stress on the individuals’ immune system.

Proper removal of mercury amalgam fillings has become a specialty of our practice.

Consider the following;

  • Mercury fillings continually vaporize (i.e. leach mercury vapour) in the mouth especially when chewing, brushing, or drinking hot liquids.
  • As mercury vapour is inhaled and swallowed, it is readily absorbed into the blood stream, passing through the various organs and even into the brain.
  • Mercury from these fillings becomes widely distributed throughout the body and can stay lodged for long periods of time.
  • In autopsy studies, there is a correlation between the amount of mercury in brain tissue and the number of mercury amalgam fillings in the mouth.
  • The mercury absorbed from dental amalgams can cause body chemistry and organ function to change.

These changes can be subtle, but continually present over long periods of time.There are five different metals inside each mercury amalgam filling, and this can cause electrical current problems in the mouth.
