If you have what’s commonly called “silver amalgam” fillings in your mouth we strongly urge you to have them removed. Amalgam fillings are about 50% mercury and outgas for decades into your brain, digestive system, kidneys and other organs.
Mercury is a neurotoxin and it is so toxic that when it is taken from a dental patient’s mouth it has to be disposed of as hazardous waste, by federal law. So why would anyone think it’s a safe thing when it’s in your mouth?
Mercury has been linked to physical and neurological disorders and should never have been used in dental work. If you do decide to remove your mercury fillings (and we hope you do) please go to a dentist who specializes in mercury removal. Unless it is done properly you could release a large amount of mercury toxins into the rest of your body.
Also, as a general rule, never have dental work done while pregnant or trying to get pregnant. Dental work can release a lot of toxins into the body and they can affect the development of the fetus.
