Did you know that an unhealthy mouth and dangerous dental treatments can significantly increase your risk of developing serious health conditions such as a heart attack or stroke? Here’s how visiting a mercury-free dentist can protect your overall well-being.


Taking good care of your teeth and mouth, including following a healthy diet, practicing good dental hygiene, and visiting your holistic dentist regularly, is crucial for more than just your oral well-being.

In fact, a healthy mouth and a healthy body go hand in hand, and looking after your teeth has been shown to:

  • Boost your immune system
  • Lower your risk of developing heart disease
  • Improve and preserve your memory
  • Reduce risks of infection and inflammation in your body

BIOCOMPATIBLE DENTISTRY

Top 5 Reasons to Visit a Mercury-Free Dentist

Did you know that mercury is one of the most toxic substances for our health, yet it is commonly used in standard dental treatments? On the other hand, a mercury-free dentist is committed to using only biocompatible materials that are much safer for your health.

A holistic dentist understands and recognizes that the mouth is the gateway to the rest of your body, which is why he/she will only treat you using holistic tools and materials that will benefit your oral and overall health.

Here are just 5 reasons why you should consider a mercury-free dentist:

  1. It keeps children safe. Dental amalgam (silver fillings) are known to pose serious health risks for patients, especially those who are pregnant or breastfeeding. In addition, because children’s neurological systems are still developing, they are more susceptible to the toxic effects of mercury vapor, putting them at higher risks for problems such as allergies, autoimmune disorders, and more.

  2. Mercury-free materials protect your natural tooth structure. While biocompatible materials such as ceramic don’t require the removal of much natural and healthy tooth structure, amalgam fillings do. This means that silver fillings will weaken your teeth and increase your need for more extensive and expensive dental work in the future.

  3. Amalgam fillings destroy the environment. More and more, amalgam is being recognized as a serious environmental problem, and the amalgam used in dentistry is polluting our environment via dental clinic emissions, landfills, and human waste.

  4. Dentists who use amalgam are at a greater health risk. Amalgam poses a serious occupational hazard and due to mercury exposure in the workplace, many dental professionals show elevated systemic mercury levels. This means they are at higher risk of neurological problems, reproductive failures, and birth defects.

  5. Amalgam perpetuates social injustice. More than just damaging your health and the environment, the use of amalgam perpetuates social injustice. How? While some consumers have the option of mercury-free filling materials, many low-income families are still subjected to amalgam and the associated health risks.

Support Your Local Mercury-Free Dentist

While traditionally, amalgam may have been the only material option presented to patients, today there are a wide variety of alternatives that you can choose from, including composite resin fillings. Your mercury-free dentist works to protect your health with top quality care and materials, which is why you should switch to a holistic dentist today.
