Toxins are very relevant to dentistry, especially in holistic dentistry, from two main perspectives:
Also for patients wanting to reduce their heavy metal burden via mercury- amalgam filling removal, toxic overload will impede the process of mercury excretion from the body and it would not be advisable to commence dental revision of the amalgam fillings until the body is less toxic and in a state to handle the massive demands that mercury elimination asks of it.
What Toxins in Dentistry Are a Concern?
The main toxins that are a concern are mercury from dental amalgam or so-called silver fillings. Fluoride found in our water supplies if you live in a fluoridated area, toothpaste, mouthwashes, some dental filling materials and the good old fashioned fluoride treatments that dentists are so fond of. Bisphenol A (BPA) which can be found in many cheaper brands of white filling materials and chemicals that can be in filling materials, oral care products and tooth whitening agents.
As a holistic dentist, I ensure that in my dental practice we choose products that are as natural as possible to best support the health and well- being of my patients, myself and my dental team.
(As an aside – dentists are massively exposed to mercury every day in the course of their work as they are ignorant of the issues surrounding dental amalgam. Dentists, myself included, are taught – aka “brainwashed” at the dental school and by the dental profession that amalgam is a great filling material and perfectly safe for them to work with and use on their patients.).
